How many of you

Find it hard to sell your truck or even think about selling it?? Not because the economy, but because you are just partial to your truck. Because you have put a lot of time and your money into your truck. I am considering letting mine go for an 08, but feel a little unsure about it at the same time. I almost feel a little bit if sadness.. I know that sounds weird, but its just how it is. I just would hate to see someone buy it and know they wouldn't take as good of care of it as I did.

If I had the money to buy newer, I probably wouldn't hesitate.

Hey Rob, I know how you feel. I buying an F550 today and thinking about selling my F350 and I actually got sad at the very thought. I think I might have to keep both trucks, or see how things go with the F550 and decide to sell that one instead. They are both 7.3's but my 350 has a manual transmission and the 550 is an auto. I'm not sure I'll be fully happy with an auto so I'll just have to drive 'em both and see which one I want to keep. I have to decide soon though because one of them is getting the 08 front end conversion done sooner rather than later.

Take a picture of the old truck and hang it in the shop! That way when you buy that new truck you wont ever forget about the old girl!

If i had the money i would be driving around one of those 6.4's!

Yeah, i figure i would have the same payment, within 25 bucks give or take.. I love the new one, but it isn't lifted.. I love my truck lifted. they look so much better. I could always lift the new one.

Understand that 100%, I run into that problem with all my rides.

A buddy of mine is looking for a truck just like yours... if you decide to sell it, I think you will have people in line for it. For the best home put it for sale up on hill.
