    Hi guys I'am looking at a newer truck not brandnew but something in the 99-2000 maybe 2001 model truck all depends on $$$$.

    My 95 is turning out to be a lemon which is a P.O but what can you do. I have drove and worked with a F-550 they are a tough truck but they do ride pretty rough. I'am using this truck for a daily driver too aswell as work truck.

    The new dumping flatdeck I'am building is pretty heavy I know I can't put it on a one ton truck and I think if I put it on my 95 F-450 its going to be noticable on that truck too.

    I think the newer F-450s are built a little heavier than my 95 I know it has bigger brakes.

    What do you think is the F-550 worth looking at like I said I know they pack a good load we have put 12,000lbs on one :laugh:

    I dont think it would really matter. Just all depends on what truck you can get at a good price. I would probably want the F550, but thats just me!:)
