F450 hauling 30k for business (video)

Watch this 196,000-Mile, 2011 Ford F-450 Handle Car-Transporter Duty « F150online.com

Interesting video.

Little concerned about the rearend problem x4, but really if that's the only problem he has had, them he's doing pretty good. Not only is he shy of 200k miles, but those are HARD miles pulling that weight.

I don't like the death wobble deal either. I've never experienced it, but I have never pulled that much weight either.

Not sure I would keep throwing a stock rear in it after it went out of warranty, just step up the gears and do a 550 rear, although the 2015 f-450 is supposed to step it up with bigger axles and steeper gears and out pull the 13 rams 36k pulling power

I agree. Stock gears are probably a lot cheaper, but the down time I don't think I would like.
