    I am looking to get a solid work truck for my sod business. I will be towing a gooseneck trailer with several pallets of sod and a bobcat 873

    I really wanted a dually but recently came across a 2001 f-350 7.3 Deisel with 174,000 miiles. It has a 7x10 flatbed. It is a quad cab and pretty much the truck I am looking for but it is a SINGLE rear wheel not a dually. What do you think this trucks worth and do you think it will be practical for what im doing? Towing a dump truck on dirt and dumping. Hauling sod on truck and also trailer.

    Any input is appreciated!

    I think you need to keep looking. I have a 3500 single wheel Dodge and a F-350 dually. I have a large trailer that will smash my 3500 single wheel but barely drops the dually. Or you could by the truck and put a set of adjustable air bags on the truck.
