I didn't feel right about the deal so I decided to back out time to keep searching. You get those gut feelings that don't go away didn't feel right about it. The truck has been on the dealers lot for atleast 6 months to a year the truck has a deck that has a used flatdeck put on the truck the U bolts are not even rusty. The 4R100 transmission still bothers me ya you can have it built but it is still a 3spd overdrive transmission. That 3-4 grand could be used for something else. Some good info I found out that my truck to put my mind to ease and it is a 6spd is a bad combination with a 6.0 I'am not the only one with the powering out problems. The 6.0 needs the torqshift to build some boost to get the truck rolling. A standard transmission doesn't provide that. It is why I have problems when I put a load on my truck and its very tough to get moving. It is also a part of the traction problems. One of my biggest fears with my F-450 is getting down into a jobsite and power out. Getting stuck is one thing but when the truck powers out you can't move the tires can't even spin. Only takes 2000lbs on the truck grossing 12,000lbs the truck powers out in low gear. Put the truck into Low let the clutch out slowly and try give some throttle it stalls. So I'am on plan B I do need to get rid of my current truck with the powering out problem is something that is not even tollerable to deal with. The current state of my truck I can't even use it to its maximum potential. Will start to look for a 05-07 F-450 or 550 2wd with 6.0 automatic. The powering out problem is cured if I find a 6.0 with automatic yes I may have traction problems but there is a solution for that. The cheapest option is a set of tire chains to give the tires more bite. It might be time to find a cheap skid steer so if the job is in a tough spot the machine can carry the load to the truck or carry the load from the truck to the house. Homeowner wants 3 yards of gravel and their place as a driveway that is unreasonably steep the only way the material is getting down the driveway is one scoop at a time. They are not going to get a tandem axle down the driveway nor are they going to get a single axle down. It is at the point with some of these places a load of gravel would slide off my truck backing down the driveway. Even if my truck had a mason dump on it with taller sides the load would shift backwards and right over the tailgate. The homeowner buys a place that is fit for a mountain goat they can pay extra to have materials delivered or work done. I'am not paying 10 grand extra for a 4x4 just to save the customer money.
