Michelle, maybe you could change your signature line to read "rest in pieces" for Rebecca...

Michelle, your new truck wouldn't, by chance, be black with tan accents, would it?

Tan Yuk!

Oh my god no! I can't stand tan.
It is silver. My third color choice. It looks like it will be a nice match with the trailer.

Okay. We have a black and tan dog named Daisy, I just wanted to know which one was mine when I called them, and they both came running!

Michelle,
You will love that PSD! Don't know what it is about a diesel engine... some people hate them.. But, IMHO they are simply misinformed.... my F250 PSD is my first diesel and I just love how it sounds it purrrss like a tiger... especially when crawling up a mountain pass with the TIN CABIN in tow...she just sounds so professional. Post some pics of the new rig... did you get the xlt, lariat... heated seats would be nice in your neck... I must say I'm impressed with the turn around time you and your insurance company have managed.
Good luck, safe travels.

Researchers have determined a cat's purr resonates on the same frequency as an idling diesel engine. The only question is, which one?

I steped up to the diesel because the 5.4 gas engine was just not cutting it heading through the passes. Daisy has the 6.0 Trubo Diesel I gave it a run this evening. WOW!
I purchased a 2006 F-250, 4X4, Extended Cab, Long Bed, 6.0L Turbo Diesel, 3.73 Limited Slip rear end, Torgue shift automaic transmission, in Silver.

One of the reasons I believe we came to a quick is I remined them that one; A months rental would be expensive for them, Two; I am staying in a hotel quite a ways from home(expensive). They are paying for both. Three; the body shop where the truck ended up has a good reputation with State Farm. Four; THe owner of the shop was lobbying on my behalf. Five; I was calling them daily. Six; I had my insurance agent lobby on my behalf. They did not stand a chance!

Michelle,

You have an amazing story and I'm so glad you made it through your disaster. I think you will be very happy with your new truck. I have a similar one and love it. Does yours have the Ford tow command system?

Steve
