    I'm looking to buy a new truck and thinking about the switch and go that a few people have talked about. Anyone here have one? a local dealer has a f550 with a s&g for about 50k new. any thoughts would help.

    Don't buy American junk.

    Get a nice Mitsubishi cabover with 26000 or 33,000 GVW and put a nice S&G system on it.

    f550 is a great truck but if it going to be your main truck go w/ something bigger like a 650 or there are an ample supply of used freightliners. you'll have a lot more truck for about the same amount of $ and that's always good. that being said if you're wanting to pull a trailer the f550 would be better for licensing reasons.

    oh as far as the switch-n-go worth every $, we have a ford lcf w/ such unit love it, only thing I might do different next time is to go w/ the hyd unit.
