is getting a 250 going to really hurt financially? cause if you can swing it you'll be pleased.

you think your 150 pulls the trailer well...

specifically i don't know about the ps diesel.

around here, i know it's always a joke that the engine in any LCO truck, even gassers, is the last thing to go. with plowing, you'll lose trannies, brakes, bend frame, and have rust damage etc. before you're engine dies.

it's something that people just remark, but i think there's some truth to it.

A PS should be good for 300K if well taken care of. Or even more. Regular oil changes with premium oil, and clean fuel and air filters are a must. Mine has 112K, I got it two years ago Labor Day weekend with 18 miles.

Power Stroke....

vs. gas? My old 97 with the 4.6.
Maybe 8-10 mpg. pulling the trailer.
The PSD is great. The truck does not even notice the weight behind it. The payments may be higher but what you'll save in fuel costs plus the piece of mind is worth it.
Plus my insurance rates went down. Don't know why and I did not ask!
On the PSD,regular maintenance is the ticket to longevity. Just like Paul said.

My last mpg. check was around 18. With pencil and paper. No computer stuff.
