    Because a 550 is the exact same truck but has 5k more payload.

    I only say it adds 10k because i pulled a 550 owner over the other day and asked what he paid.. he said 62k... I went to the dealer and checked out a 450 it was 49k plus delivery.. 50,500.
    Both trucks had the contractor combo bed on them.

    You sound like a real bone head to tell you the truth. What a great way to check prices. My bet is you buy neither because your still trying to tie your shoes.

    Don't throw out the idea of the new ram 4500 or 5500. A buddy of mine got a new 4500 and the ram frame puts his ford 550 frame to shame. Much much much stronger. And me being a diesel guy I can't speak on the gas but most new fords are a pain to get into and work on compared to the ram.

    Also I'm pretty sure the ram 4500/5500 are available with the new 6.4L hemi.
