That is a rare truck I mean being a supercab F-550 it must have been ordered as a tow truck.

Looks good

Not really buddy.....lots of contractors have them. Maybe you guys just can't afford them with all the doom and gloom I hear from you.

Here on the West Coast it is either reg cab or crew cab. Regular cab are all 84 ca models so you can use a 12 foot deck.

You guys forget trucks are absolutely dirt cheap in the USA. I can't even buy a 08-09 cab and chassis diesel for less than 50 grand. That is a XL model diesel.

That truck that Ford guy has there would be a easy 65,000 dollar truck here.

I'm not a Ford guy..I prefer Dodge..But Ford would be my 2nd choice..

Either way, that's a sweet truck! Congrats.. Mind telling us how much it cost ya?

And I agree..throw some tints on when you can separate yourself from it :D.

It all depends.

I looked up a 09 F-550 4x4 XLT diesel 165 wb reg cab is 57,000 dollars for a cab and chassis. The same chassis in a XL is 54,000.

Pretty cheap huh :laugh:

You can buy the same truck in the USA for 40,000 :cry:

Do the DPF delete kit and you get so much more power to the rear wheels.

Keep us updated on how that 6.4 runs for ya. Like everything now a days you either get a good one or a crap one.

I wouldn't be doing any mods till the warranty is out. Eliminating the emmissions is a warranty killer.

The 6.4 is a hit or miss.

It may sound funny but the interior of the 08-09 trucks I don't like the looks of it the outside has grown on me but the inside no thanks.

The dealer down the street has an XL F550 crew cab with a 12' flatbed, gooseneck, hitch for $31,000. I salivate everytime I see it. Nice truck, by the way-I'm jealous!!!!!!!:cry::cry::cry:

and who have you been hearing this from?
08 Job 1 & 2 trucks have had the vast majority of issues, but after the radiator fixes and venturi T updates everything is all well and good. the forums have all but died down about issues with anything on 08 job3 and 09+ trucks. The TSB updates ford has been putting out has been clearing most of the bugs on the computer end and no other major issues other than radiators have been brought up, and guys have passed 60K+ miles on their 08's.

my 09 6.4 has had a zero issue 15,000 miles so far.

I would hope you don't have any issues at 15,000 miles. My 03' Dodge has had zero issues at 113,000 miles. I spoke to a guy with an 09' F550 and utility bed last week. It has 59,000 miles on it and in the shop 3 times-2 with the radiator(How does a radiator mess up?) and the third with major engine trouble. I really like the F550 but it makes no sense that they give so many problems, considering they are the flagship of Ford.:confused:

we recently pulled a service report for our 02 2500HD from a buddy who works at a chevy dealer, and I couldnt believe how many times it had been in the shop before 20K miles. Half the stuff I couldnt even remember going bad on it.

Really nice truck you have there. When the 6.4's first came out I swore that I would never buy one in my life because of all the problems we had with the one at the shop. But now at 44k miles and no more problems since about 15k its actually turning out to be a very nice truck.

I hope this one works out for you and good luck.
