tell me why you arent buying another 19,500 gvw 550 instead. why does a company of your size need this in between size truck?

just curious

I am not sure what pricing you recieved, but the price difference from a f550 to a terrastar is only 5k? For us payload is key. We pretty much have a vehicle in all weight classes but it would be nice to have the terrrastar because it would be in the middle weight class for us, but anytime we can get extra payload it counts. We do a lot of hardscape and construction work, so we haul a lot of brick, process etc.
