    I just took delivery of my new 06 350 srw 6.0 6sp. I was really surprised today when i seen the front gvw was 6000 lb. with a coil spring. Does any one have any comment on the front coil springs? My last 2 trucks was a 00 250 and just sold a 03 350 both with snow plw opt. but they had 5200 front gvw. This should really carry my boss v plow real well.Also it is 11,200 gvw.

    There should be instructions in the pictures area. Can't wait to see it! If you don't mind saying, what did you pay for it?

    Once you get the pic onto your computer click Go Advanced to post and then go to manage attachments then browse your computer. Find the pic and click it then upload. Very simple.

    Love the coil springs on my 05 350. It handles much better than the leaf's and turns a few feet shorter as well. I don't plow, so I don't know how it'll hang a plow, but my buddy runs a 9' fisher V on his 06.

    looks nice, I wish I had gotten the 6spd manual with mine. Watch for the F350 badges on the fenders to start peeling in a couple months. Mine did it last fall, and I see tons of them around here with the badges missing parts of the paint.

    Sounds like you got a good deal, I paid $37400 also for mine too.

    Nice truck but I though Lariets had a two-tone paint job, no? Either way nice truck.
