Ok then you ask is a F350 better than an F250? Other than the emblems , shocks and spring spacers no but your keep asking,,,,

So help me out and you thanked us over and over after we gave you all that advice and you ALMOST didn't listen to us why were you asking if you almost weren't going to listen anyway?

Hi Rollan,
I feel like I offend you. And your upset. I really appreciate your help. And you guys take time of your schedule to read and answer people questions and give them excellent advice. I was all over the place because I was was not sure what I need and what was a good year to buy. This is my first Ford Super Duty. And wanted to make sure I purchased the correct one. I am very grateful full to all of you that provide me with excellent advice. If I offed you becuase I asked a To many questions I apologize. I was just trying to get info and see your options. I was not trying to waste your time. I will try to be more specific when I ask questions. I am sorry if I offend you and anybody that gave me advice here.

That is a seriously nice truck. Can I ask how many miles and what you paid? Maybe the area of the country you live in? That truck would literally be worth gold up here in the northeast being that clean.

Just an FYI, it has an upgraded nose from a 2005-2007 truck, 2008 mirrors, upgraded speakers, and aftermarket leather that looks awesome.


I'm not sure why people are upset about you asking questions. I felt strongly that you should get a 2000 and but if you decided to go buy a Geo Metro, I'd still sleep fine at night. Looks like you got an awesome truck, hope it runs for many years to come. Note, I am very jealous. I've spent over $20k and 2 years to make my truck approach that level of "nice".

I agree that it looks good. Wonder if those are Eddie Bauer Ex seats.

That's great, glad to help I'm usually never offended. Except that is when someone asks for advice, and then ignores the "asked for" advice and does a complete "180" . Just like you almost did when you asked all these questions on a 7.3 and then out of the clear freakin blue almost buys a 6.4????

When you looked at that 6.4, what did you think of the advice we were giving you on the 7.3? Bad advice? If you appreciated the advice why for a second there did you act like our advice wasn't worth the dirt on the bottom of my shoe?

Hi Guys,
How is everyone?
I wanted to ask you guys a question regarding airbags . I have rear air bags on my truck and you inflate them manually. I was looking at adding a compressor to fill them so I don’t have to do it manually. I was looking at Accuair and some other brands. Is there a system you guys recommend.
Thanks
