    I drove a 4x4 fuso i liked the truck but it was very slow with a load on .you have to put the pedal to the floor all the time .The ford has 55hp more .I liked the rugby body . My truck was built and sitting on the lot. I payed about 34000 +_ The truck is great to work out of . I move dirt around the job sites with it. I haven't needed my bobcat much i just drive into the yard and fill the truck and dump with the spreader gate .Im a builder GC so i dident need a 19000 lb gvw truck. I can pull a 12000lb dump trailer up a steep grade at 35mph . Pulling the trailer with my mini ex i get about 11 mpg . driving around town i get 15 mpg , on the hi way at 55mph on CC i get about 17 mpg .I liked the f 550 but it was around 55000 + tax .I drive fords ,so i bought the ford .I dont like the 6.0 ps so i wont but another one. My wife has a 03 EX with the 6.0 ps and it been great 20 mpg . My 06 f 350 got about 12 mpg ? why ??? The ford dealer is down the street if i need service. The lcf has a 6 CYL ps diesel thats 2 less cyl to explode 25 % less problems.

    I've been considering the LCF but now Isuzu is putting out 205 hp. Decisions, decisions.

    Only a few yrs left for the LCF . Ford is going to be discontinuing them after 09. It hasnt been a good seller for them.

    Cab overs are not big sellers look at Hino discontinuing cab overs for the North American market. Look at class 8 trucks the only cab over you can get is custom ordered. Mack still sells the MR but its mostly refuse applications.

    I'am not surprised Ford is going to stop making the LCF.

    Maybe not where you live, but they are very common around here.
