Hi From Kalifornia!

Hi Everyone,

I actually don't yet own a Ford Diesel but am expecting to sometime this year. I still have some questions to ask and hence joined this forum.

We have a travel Trailer which we've been towing with our GMC 1/2 ton and although she's a great vehicle she has now over 100K and has always struggled.

So it's retirement time for the GM and time to beta new truck. We've seen this coming so have saved our pennies for several years with a view to buying a new Diesel.

We're looking at the F350 Diesel King Ranch

Thanks in advance for any help!

welcome to the dark side
I have had a number of GMC trucks and all have been exceptional vehicles.
We got a 10,000 pound trailer and I knew my old 300k plus gmc was not up to towing it. so I found a deal on my f-350 and i LOVE this truck!!
It has been a lot of work but that is what happens when you buy a basket case!
I have not had a vehicle I enjoyed driving this much in decades
