Yes it would be a good trade depending on what year your F-150 is and yes you could put a one ton dump box on that truck and have a great landscaping truck for sure....pete

well my f150 is a 2002 with 113,000 and the f350 has 41,000 on it, obviously rebuild, so i just don't know what is the best decision. do you think it would be ok for lawn mowing and maintence to? i know it would do fine in the snow for plowing, and i believe that a 7.5 would be diesel right?
