this orange thing on the top left corner:

I made the same mistake. Only i didnt have someone warn me. You havent live until you have a fully loaded 5 yard sander shift going around a corner in the snow!! I wont make that mistake again.

The total truck was under 60k as you see it with plow and spreader and that is after giving up part of the rebate to get zero percent. Its an XL with power locks,windows,cruise,remote start , trailer brake,410 rear,cab step,plow prep,jack,splash guards,aluminum wheels,reverse alarm.AT tires and 13,300 gvw pack. Now it goes to have the windows tinted and get lettered.As for the tie downs yes we will also be adding d rings in the corners and using heavier tie downs then the standard ones. Also adding a bumper that will slide into the hitch to help protect the spinner from being damaged if someone backs into anything.

I really cant say enough about this set up. Averaging 15.5 mpg with the 4:10 rear. We have been using this truck for picking up material instead of on of the larger trucks that would only get 7 - 9 mpg. 36 flat of flowers, no prob. Couple of pallets of fert and seed . 25 6' Arbs you name it.I have already talked to the dealer about doing another in the spring if winter treats us right. Next will be a 350 crew Lariet single rear wheel with the same bed. Its nice to know that if a side panel get messed up they can just ship us a new one rather then end up in the body shop for 3 x the price. I really dodnt know that I would ever buy another truck with a pick up bed on it again. Some of you guys in the market for trucks should really think about the versatility of a flatbed vs a pick up bed.

I was about to say the same thing. An F350 has always been my dream truck. Maybe one day, but for now I will stick with my Tundra
