    I don't have one, but I've heard of problems with the Ford LCF. If your looking for reliability I'd go Isuzu or Mitsu. Both are good trucks with great reliability. Both are available in crew cabs and depending on the models, you can go as high as 19500 GVWR. I own a 07 Isuzu NQR with a 14 foot dump body and love it. It has taken everything I have thrown at it with no problems. I like the the look at the Hino 195, but it's too new to pass judgement on it.
