Considering This F450. Oasis attached...Thoughts??

Used 2009 Ford F-450 Lariat (Gray Truck) | Kerrville, TX

My concern is the lack of info on the attached Oasis Report.

The salesman at the dealership said that when they were dealing with the issues during the 08-10 timeframe that it seemed to be all or nothing. Either you had all the problems or none of them. As much as I want to believe him, with all the issues seen here I have a hard time. I like the truck as does my wife. I just want to feel comfortable with the purchase.

Thanks.

I kinda just wanted 2wd due to the fact I will only use it when towing my fifth wheel. No snow or ice where I go in SoCal. Desert riding for this family.

o well that makes sense then... but what happens when you have the camper parked at the dunes and you spin the rear wheels..... your buggy better have some pulling power.

I can see that. I will keep it in mind although I don't plan on taking an 18k lb fifth wheel too far off the beaten path. Even as a 4wd, those 19.5" wheels don't really allow for any off road tires.

We've got some pretty agressive tires on our f450 dump truck 19.5's. I believe they are made by wanli? If I'm not mistaken. But it being 2wd should help ya in the fuel mileage a little bit. Are you planning to tune and delete? If not I'd say to keep looking and find a 2011 or 2012. The 6.7 is much more reliable dpf system.

I absolutely love the 08-10 F450's but I'm so hesitant to get one because of the issues I hear about.

This one seemed great but now I find myself second guessing myself again due to the fact it is only 2wd although I have never used 4wd unless I have been in the mountains, which this truck will never do.

We have never gone way off the beaten path either but I don't want to be held back from trying it because I have a 2wd truck.
I kinda feel 2wd or 4wd in soft sand the truck will sink as will the triple axle fifth wheel will. I couldn't imagine trying to pull ~30k lbs out of the sand.

Signed,

Confused....btw anyone want a 2011 Lifted F250 Lariat??
