Welcome to the org and glad you are ok from your accident. Its very cool to see how the Ford trucks hold up in wrecks. Ill be rolling through Hallettsville Saturday on my way to Port Aransas with my Camper and golf cart in tow. So if you see a loaded down F250 roll through that's me.

Wow, it scares the hell out of me to think of being in a wreck with my little girl in the back. Thank god for those car seats, that's one area I do not spare any expense. Yeah we are heading down to spend a few days and drop off my camper. We are leaving it for the summer so we can come and go all summer.

yah i think that truck saved our lives to get out as good as we did, its hard to believe how fast that can happen i didnt even have time to hit the break but were all alive and will be ok thats all i care about and another reason im sticking with ford this truck held up like a beast after that accident altho i didnt ever consider another brand of truck just more reason to love ford, i would like to get a camper just idk when we will and dont really have time for that stuff now but july we will be taking the truck all the way to ohio for vacation im excited

How did you like that eco boost. I talked to a guy who had a truck similar to yours and he said he traded a 06 F250 diesel for it and it pulls his loads just as good. I considered trading my truck off a few weeks ago and the Ford salesmen were pushing that Ecoboost.

man i loved it, it was a beast and could tow like no other, i have my drift car i towed around on a lowboy trailer and it pulled it like nothing was there, its such a great truck i cant stress that enough, the only reason im upgrading is in the future i will need something bigger and better and right now the payload capacity simply just isnt enough for what i do i constantly had it sitting on the bump stops but other than that i would of kept it, another reason im upgrading is cause the price of a custom trailer to my liking would make up the cost differance between my fully loaded fx4 and a superduty diesel
