hi steve and moe

thanks for the link......i remembered the fleet site had full specs...
but couldn't recall the url for the fleet stuff

steve i agree on the few minor differences...
i've seen enthusiast magazines mention the 'sterling' rear....on some models....which always confuses me...

that info in the fleet site is pretty complete and with each model variation included....the site i referenced showed all this info in table form...with models lumped and only differences noted....

as expressed earlier, there is no standard 250 or 350 but given the same option package.....the srw drive models should ride the same and so on....the 350 comes with 18 inch wheels? as i recall at all trim level?

anyway back to craftsman's original post if the 05 350 is spec'd like he wants it shouldn't be any harsher than a 250....

and if the price is right...... mo' bizzle must buy!

cheers

well craftsman...

if the sticker including shipping....is 48,500$
dealer cost is approximately...........41,000
not counting holdbacks/incentives or money favors....

the 'x' plan (you know a ford worker)....would be 42,800$
the 'a,z,d' (work/retired ford)..............would be 40,800$
(approximately for each)

so 41k would be a good figure......a little less than i paid 1 year ago.

but there was also rebate money...which started at 1k when ordered,
but was 2k on delivery....

if it's equipped like ya want....price is right...

unless the dealer really wants to move it...for a loss

and be sure they fill the tank at delivery......that's another 80$ bucks!!

cheers

Sounds like a fair price to me. If you are like most diesel truck buyers, you will be driving it for many years to come. Our 97 powerstroke is coming up on its 10th birthday. It's still in mint condition with 81,000 miles, and still proves to be over kill for towing or 28'. The only item that has failed is the vacuum pump. Can you believe I'm still running with the original brakes! Ford's were never known for brake life, I must be the exception. We still get little notes under the wiper blade, asking if I would sell. Not yet, I just broke it in. Jeff

coastalview,
I am with you on the Fords in general. I have driven many gas engine Fords to over 300k miles. I just bought a gently used 96 PSD F350 dually with a whopping 38k on it...that won't last long. I typically drive about 50k a year but figured it was worth the shot. My mileage is a bit lower than I expected but that is probably due to the dually, and 4.10 rear end. A Gear Vendor OD is in the planning stages

hi costalview and other psd'ers or sd'ers.....

nice to have a big dog in the shed isn't it?

you know first hand, with the assortment of motor cars in your lot, that even low mileage rides need the usual care and feeding.

with only 8k miles a year on the psd, what have you done?
transfer case/front/rear oil?
coolant?
brake fluid?
tires?
tranny flush/change?
hows the suspension holding up?
how often do you change the motor oil.....still using dino?
have you had any issues with growth in the fuel tank?
and what about the fuel filters and water trap?

it's always an issue for me to keep track of this stuff on my old cars......
but on the powerstroke, i'm at almost 20k for the first year....15k in tow.
so i'm looking at a lot of blood transfusions...

cheers

I think either of the diesels will be a great asset but anything over a half-ton will ride like a truck.

I'll be straight with you, that's why I went RAM. Half-ton WITH diesel.

And I was GM for over 45 years.
