Well guys and gals I am going to be picking up a new 2010 ford f.250 super duty in a few days maybe tomorrow. My choices are Red or White having a tough time deciding on the color both are exactly the same truck just different colors. The reason why im asking you guys is because for the next 2 to 3 years this will be my personal rig. Then after this it will be released to the employees, at that time in which it will be lettered. Of course whites the easiest for lettering, but reds my favorite color. So its either a business decision or my personal decision. What do you guys think?

If its your personal truck and you like red I would get it. I also think red is the best truck color, just my opinion.

I have two red ones and three white ones, none of them new :( I really like the look of my red F350 dump, with aluminum boxes, steps and stainless simulators, especially when its pulling my matching 18' flatbed, but it will probably wind up painted white at some point, just to maintain uniformity in the fleet. For me, buying used trucks, white is easy/cheap to find, easy to letter, easy to keep clean, easy to sell, so on so forth. I'm in a similar boat, looking to upgrade my personal rig, if.....IF... I go new I really don't know if I am sold on buying white. Probably will but red would also be my other choice. Are you getting a 6.4 or a gasser?

Its a gasser all I can afford right now, would love a diesel. But im really liking the red one but the white would be a good thought for the business because it would be easier to letter. But also I will probably never sell this truck. Planning on keeping it until it is dead.

Touch choice, both good colors, but red is my pick. Its just a different feel having color!!!

I'd get the white. In a few years the red seems to fade and show scratches easier plus a red lawn truck would look like valley crest here.

Yeah my current truck is white and I would like to get a different color but the reason with the decision is because it will be a fleet truck in a few years. So for the next few years as a personal vehicle I would like it to be red but when it goes to the employees I would like it to be white, easy to letter. So im not sure yet which one I would like but im starting to lean more towards red.

Good to hear!

I would've gone with white as well. White generally has a slightly higher resale value mostly for business lettering in the commercial market. I know I'd get a white truck when the time comes. The only downside is owning a white truck in winter isn't the best for visibility.

I'm itching to see some pics of it, I bought a 2005 duramax extended cab maroon with only 52,225 miles on it !!!!, the new fords are also starting to grow on me to. If I have enough work for a crew I'll buy a 2010 f-350 srw then. So how the v10 ?

Ive got some pics but ive gotta get them uploaded ill be putting them in the picture forum ill let you know when I do. The v10 is a great motor with tons of power a lot more then what I need pulling my trailer. It gets roughly 8 miles to the gallon witch is terrible to me anyways, im planning to buy myself a tuner for christmas there like 300 bucks and you can achieve better gas millage more power all the stuff my friend has one and it works great.

cool !, Like i said those new fords are starting to grow on me, if I get bad reports about the new 6.7 diesel then I'll go with the 6.8 v10 in a 350 srw extended cab. How much is the mvp costing you ? I kinda want to put a 8' fisher x-blade or 8 1/2 xtreme v on it.

I think the blades like 5700 installed and then im getting a back drag and snow deflector kit to which is another 400 so a little over 6000.

I'm pretty sure I'd want a backdrag edge or something like that for doing back dragging for for an hoa or if I get this big commercial account.

Yeah you will want to buy the back drag for sure. I have a lot of residential drives im gonna do and a couple parking lots for my commercial places. You will need the back drag for every drive way to pull snow away from the garage door.
