New to site, my 08 CCSB F-350 on 35's

Well I bit the bullet the other day and picked up a used 08 CCSB F-350. I've been daily driving a 08 CCSB Chevy Silverado, and my shop has owned a 2005 F-350 CC dually since new. Well in the past 6 months we had installed a trans, oil pump, injectors, and some other misc crap for over $10k in parts and labor, so I sold it a month or so a go and went on the lookout for a daily driver diesel to replace both. Picked this one up on Friday with 27,600 miles on it, and took it to my buddys tire shop and had a set of 35x12.50x18 Nitto Trail Grapplers installed. Working out all the details now to order a Spartan, dual exhaust, DPF delete, and intake. Just thought I would introduce myself and show off my new toy.

Welcome to the site. Just a heads up we dont allow direct links to non sponsor shops. I edited the original post to remove it.

Nice truck and some very cool project vehicles on your site though

Of course the chevy couldnt handle the load. Do you think government motors can build a truck

That was a nice looking chevy. Are you going to set up the Ford similar? Where is your shop located? Those are some nice rides on your website!

not lifting the new truck. have to have it a little more reliable and smaller. WE travel about 20,000 miles across the country dragging either a 38ft triple axle double car trailer, 36ft enclosed, or a 44ft enclosed. So stock height is optimal. I do plan to add all the go fast towing goodies ASAP
