I'm new on here, but ran across your post and kinda chuckled... seeings how I was forced to take my lil f150 and my little trailer ( mind you my lil truck is a v6 and normally never hauls more than a 50 gal spray rig.) Instead of my faithful 7.3 long bed that I run my lawn service out of. It and my 16 ft trailer never fail to surprise me with the ease of big loads I can haul.I’m heading out for a load this Sunday hope to fill truck and trailer. I used to haul with a F150 and a trailer full and a little in the bed was all I wanted to haul got the 7.3 dualy and I believe I need some side boards an trailer now.
They new 6.7 Powerstroke is even more impressive that the the 2012 6.7 Powerstroke I had. I didn’t really think there would be much difference but it is noticeableI’ve had my 2002 f350 dually last April and the day after I took it home I was under the hood changing up pipes cost $150 and 14 hours of my life also got me $2300 off asking price.
I can’t believe how much difference between 7.3 and 5.4 when it comes to moving heavy loads I can only imagine what the newer diesels are like. I did get lucky and found a ZF6 manual transmission. I love it and my wife hates it. It’s to long to wide to noisy rides to rough and stinky everything a truck should be.
I would love to have a newer diesel but I think my old school engine is hard enough to wrench on without adding all that emissions and computer controls.They new 6.7 Powerstroke is even more impressive that the the 2012 6.7 Powerstroke I had.

Beautiful stand! I’d kill for a stand like this amongst our acreage. Well, maybe not kill...
