    I just bought a new 2003 F-250 new years eve. I paid alot less than I should have but i purchased it through a family member. However, I have never owned a diesel til this one. Man what a difference in power. I have a few friends who say they like their gas burners but I have had both now and ther is NO comparison in power.

    My opinion....... Get a deisel and never look back. The Ford F-250 is a proven power plant and you see 3 x as many on the road than the competition..... For a good reason.

    I just bought a new 2004HD 2500 new 4x4 comerical truck I bought from the deal for $ 25,000 roughly but my trade in was worth 5 grand. After taxes and what I owed on my trade in I got it for $26,500. Great truck, I bought it at Bill Gatton's in Bristol TN
    Loads of rebates
    Does anyone know what the best snowplow would be for this truck?

    You can put yor order in in July for the 2005 f250. They are coming out here in Texas in Sept. The outside will be changed up to look more like the f150 now and the inside will pretty much stay the same. I talked to the rep. for the Texas area today.

    Thanks Trent

    If you would like to get some prices on what you can expect to pay for a new truck their are several sites worth checking out. Here is one that I would check out before I went and priced a truck at the dealer.
    www.carsdirect.com
    You can select the options and get the price there even buy it from them.

    In my opinion, unless you are going to use this truck for personal use as well as work...the one ton stake is the best way to go. They are versatile and will carry a good sized load of mulch while it pulls another one. It lets you accomplish more than one job at a time. Good example...I had 10 properties to mow Thursday, the last was a HOA common ground where the entrance needed a clean up and mulch. While pulling a trailer full of mowers, got 3 yards of mulch mid-day when closest to it and when I got to the HOA, was able to do it all without making a trip just for mulch and clean up. You can also combine other jobs because of the extra room it gives you to carry limbs, etc...
