Here is my brothers 6.0L 250. Its a 2005, has an edge chip with SCT custom tune soon hopefully. EGR delete, 4" MBRP Turbo Back exhaust, AFE stage 2 intake, and some 2011 rims. I believe its around 520 hp/750tq right now? Its fast and hauls like the world is on fire though.

I also saw this at the Dodge dealership. A 5500 with the 6.7 cummins. I was curious if all these 5500 or 550's would have central hydraulics? Or if thats an option (probably an expensive one.)

Yeah he loves it so far! I installed the exhaust and we did the back rack a few weeks ago. Its a nice truck to drive. Its the XLT with leather and the front seats are awesome. I will end up looking for a OBS 7.3 F-350, hopefully XLT. But we all know how often those come along in good shape...

A 1997 regular cab, long box F-350 XLT would be nice, with the 7.3. But any that I have seen have been ridiculously expensive, where as the 6.0L can be found newer for equal if not cheaper. All you can do is look though.

Well I'm bored like many of you guys too! So I figured I'd post one of my favorite trucks I've seen on the web. This was a build in Diesel Power Mag that maybe some of you have seen before. It a 2006 F-550 with a twin turbo 5.9 Cummins in it! Take a look, I'm sure you'll be impressed!

Yea a 7.3l is a diamond, no matter what year. The heavy equipment mechanic I use has 97 F450 reg cab dually 4x4 flatbed, its been sitting for about 2yrs now(doenst use it since he bought a lowboy) wants me to go grind out about 25stumps on his property. I may try to work out a trade: the stump grinding for the truck.
