    After meeting with the dealer twice about what I wanted I received the call today with the price.

    Truck:
    '07 F550, 4x4, XLT, Diesel, 189"wb, Tow Command, Max Traction tires, Snow Plow Prep Package
    Up-Fit:
    I-Pack tool boxes, 12' dump stake bed, 48" custom bulkhead, 2" receiver, 7 way harness

    Total Price $49,800

    I did a fair amount of shopping around and I don't think the price is bad, it's not the deal of the month either. I really like the dealer and I am confident about service after the sale, so all in all I thought it was a fair price.

    Any comments or suggestions?

    oh one more than, look into a PTO hoist, we have an electric over hyd. on our 550 dump and it is terrible, slow and weak. We're looking into a PTO or central hyd.

    for a work dump truck i think the XL model is sufficient unless itll be a personal truck for you

    Thats frigging cheap I can't even get a cab and chassis F-550 anyless than 50,000 dollars CND. Looked at a 06 F-550 11' dump diesel the price was 65,000 dollars.

    A fully loaded King Ranch dually 4x4 diesel P/U truck pushes the 68,000 dollar mark.

    I'am considering a new truck as I can't find any good used trucks but I don't know if I want to spend 50 grand for a cab and chassis. A 4x4 truck is around 55,000 for a regular cab cab and chassis with a 165wb.

    So when you American members complain that your trucks cost too much it costs us even more here in Canada. I converted the 49,800 to CND funds and its the same price as what we would pay for a cab and chassis.

    For the extra reliable 6.0 costs us 7000 dollars :rolleyes:

    Cost is high! I see new F550s in the 38-42 range.

    Do yourself a favor and go buy yourself a used international 4700 and save your self 20k and get more truck.

    A medium duty is a good option just depends on what TLS wants to use the truck for.

    For my uses I use the truck for a daily driver and work truck a person can't use a medium duty for a daily driver. If I was going to go to a larger truck it would be a tandem axle there is no money in single axle hauling.

    One thing you can safely say is a F-450 or F-550 truck will never pay for itself.

    Seams steep, for that kind of money get a the 07 Gm, horsepower, 6-speed auto trans., alot more durable truck, the earlier models voided warranty if you haul, dirt,rock, mulch, or coal. I can give you a list dealers or corporate and they will verify this. I don't want to be told I can only go to certain dealers, I tried to get mine to new orleans last year, It got there on a tow truck for $600 of my money because no elite dealer close by. If they offered me another one for $50 and sell your duramax and rely on the FORD. The answer would have to be NO, can't afford this crap again.
