How is the regular cab in head and leg room for you?
plenty of head room, could have more leg room, but its certainly been tolerable over the last 2 years, lets just put it this way, my 97 7.3 f350 has made more wayyyyy more then enough money to go out and buy an 99-2010 regular cab or crew cab or whatever cab I want truck that has more leg room, but with being a newer company and growing so much and needing/wanting so much equipment and buying that equipment. a new truck for more leg room wasn't on my mind so much. now that I have everything to be just as efficient if not more efficient then any company out there, a newer truck is on my mind. but for the original investment of 3500 dollars my 97 f350 with a 7.3 diesel was a great purchase. I have well over double that into it now, but its made me a lot of money. I would encourage you to buy an 02 or 03 7.3 diesel if you have the money or even 2008-10 if you can find one under warranty. or have a lot saved, and its not under warranty. because when the 6.4's break if they do they aren't cheap to fix like the 7.3 and 6.0 which are driven off of a high pressure oil pump which is driven off the camshaft. the 6.4's and 6.7's are driven of a high pressure fuel pump if i'm not mistaken, reliable for the most part, but not like being driven off the camshaft.
