I just took delivery of my new 06 350 srw 6.0 6sp. I was really surprised today when i seen the front gvw was 6000 lb. with a coil spring. Does any one have any comment on the front coil springs? My last 2 trucks was a 00 250 and just sold a 03 350 both with snow plw opt. but they had 5200 front gvw. This should really carry my boss v plow real well.Also it is 11,200 gvw.

There should be instructions in the pictures area. Can't wait to see it! If you don't mind saying, what did you pay for it?

Once you get the pic onto your computer click Go Advanced to post and then go to manage attachments then browse your computer. Find the pic and click it then upload. Very simple.

Love the coil springs on my 05 350. It handles much better than the leaf's and turns a few feet shorter as well. I don't plow, so I don't know how it'll hang a plow, but my buddy runs a 9' fisher V on his 06.

looks nice, I wish I had gotten the 6spd manual with mine. Watch for the F350 badges on the fenders to start peeling in a couple months. Mine did it last fall, and I see tons of them around here with the badges missing parts of the paint.

Sounds like you got a good deal, I paid $37400 also for mine too.

Nice truck but I though Lariets had a two-tone paint job, no? Either way nice truck.

No they come solid and 2 tone. If i would of had a choice it would of been 2 tone. My 03 xlt was 2 tone burg/ silver it was very sharp. This truck my dealer found in Tenn. about 400 plus miles away. I was set on a 06 due to the fuel situation with the new low sulpher fuel that might not get in to our area as fast as other places.

I like the 6 sp. ma. it is a sweet tranny. I pull a lot of weight and live in a area of hills. On my 03 i got 75,000 out of front brake pads and 87 out of rear pads, i credit the 6 sp. for this. Also i plow a lot of snow and like the manual i know alot of people swear by thr ats for plowing.

i think that goes for the more you wash them, my 05 started doing that after about a month, and my dads is a year old been washed once and never has done it

That truck looks awsome. How is the gearing in the 6 speed?

Nice Truck, just don't understand how you can drop 37K on a worktruck that is brand new. I guess if your business is booming then go for it.

Yes my business is very good and i do well. But keep in mind i started 10 years ago from scratch and drove junk. I do like a nice truck keep in mind when you pull up to a 3-600k home, you get 1 chance to make a good first impression. If you look like a sanford and son operation you will get that respect back. Im not sayiny because i have a new nice truck that i will get more work than you.
