    Portsmouth Ford has brand new trucks listed @ 35k

    6.7, XL, power service group option, we looked at a 350 SRW ext cab with everything included it was around $37,500.

    Just got approved for the loan. 15k for a 2010 f350 xl 6.4l with 76000. Wow has this last week been hell trying to find a franchised dealer that had what I want! Payment of 185 for 84 months.

    Only thing it doesn't have is a back bench seat, and a tailgate. Which I can find on ebay for cheap. It's an xl exterior with an xlt interior(power everything)

    I'll post pictures when I get it

    Sounds like an x border patrol truck off ebay. Those trucks idle alot, hope you know what your getting yourself into with the 6.4l, it not a cheap engine to work on. Once you get it i recommend dpf delete and a full egr delete.

    Wow, 35k? It is just the XL though. I did look at a sterling gray supercab XLT 6.7 there for 45k.

    But that is the reason I was looking at new, because around here they are a better deal than a year or two old trucks, with all the rebates and stuff on new trucks it makes more sense for just a couple grand more

    It was actually the dealers truck. They used it for picking up parts and service calls. I already ordered a DPF delete kit, and am going to get a full egr delete done at my mechanics shop. How much is too much to spend on a full delete? I have seen the kits to do it yourself, from like 400-1300. Is 1500 too much to spend for someone else to do it, or is that a good price?

    The DPF delete is a pretty simple procedure, and hopefully it will bump the mpg's up a couple when its done.

    To be honest, i am going to get it home, put some work into it and try to sell it for around 25-27k. Am i crazy? ha

    Then ill buy a brand new 6.2l 2013 xlt crew cab 8 ft bed.

    this is all talk, but im always looking to make money and re-invest off of purchases.

    No offense, but you will regret doing that... After towing everyday with a tuned deleted 6.4, you will be severely dissapointed going back to a gas engine to tow everyday. The 13 is a much nicer truck though

    its all talk for now. I know what you mean though. The 6.4 is a strong engine when everything is taken care of. And there is barely any milage on this. I will get a good 3-5 years on this one and try to sell it for what i bought it for, or more down the road.

    Sounds good. If you can do a full 4" or 5" exhaust system with a h&s mini max or a spartan tuner. Should run you around $1300 with full exhaust. Take a look at the flo pro egr delete kit should run about $300. You should be able to do everything yourself, the egr delete may take you about 4 hours tho. Also flush the coolant and fill with cat ELC coolant.

    Updates I have done already in the last 24 hours:

    -Cleaned the cab inside and out
    -Replaced small dinky mirrors with nice power telescpoing mirrors and replaced small speakers with some nice Bose speakers

    Things going to be done:
    -Chrome rear bumper
    Not sure if i want to keep the black grille and bumper in the front and add the air dam to what i have now, or get it all chromed out. I kinda like the black look if it right now. I bought a chrome grille but might return it. (i know resale value will be higher if i swap the black for chrome, so that may be the only reason i do it)
