Well as you seen in the last couple posts I have been having troubles with 2wd with a locker in the diff its not doing it. The locker helps but its not enough to cope with the front end of these diesel trucks and the "Superduty Cab" is so heavy the back wheels even with 6000lbs over them don't have enough traction. Looked today and I tore half of a lug off one of my new tires and the rest have heavy chunking from spinning. I should have bought a 4 wheeldrive but when I bought my 2003 back in 2006 the 4 wheeldrive trucks were very expensive more than I could afford so I settled with a 2wd with a locker. It works for most instances but with jobsite now I guess I can't chance it anymore I need 4wheeldrive. Where a excavator can go is where a building site can go. Now here is where the deals comes into play the truck market has taken a tank especially in Alberta the market is flooded with used trucks. I have been browsing the used truck ads and I can get a used 2005-2007 F-550 4x4 almost cheaper than I paid for my 2wd F-450. I think the time to buy is now while the deals are good and the economy is still slow people are not spending any money yet. I only owe 2000 dollars on my F450 so I could get another loan buy a F550 4x4 and put my dump deck onto it. Looking at V-10 powered trucks I'am not going with a 6.0 not worth it the V-10 trucks past 2005 are supposed to be excellant with the 3 valve engine. I would want a truck that has a flatdeck on it so I could transfer that too my F-450 and sell it. My F-450 would sell in Vancouver somebody that does P+D on city streets doesn't need 4wheeldrive. I'am hoping the economy turns around in 2010 because its been 2.5 years of next to nothing. I want to get back into more of my own work before I do myself in suffering through my current job. With things still dead and slow I maybe able to get what I want for a good deal. My job I have now can make the payments till the work picks up in the spring. I need to do something for one I'am getting fat sitting behind a desk and two I like working outdoors. Get back into landscaping part time would be good enough for me.
