As you guys know I have gave up on the hooklift idea but I'am still searching for a F-450 and have been for awhile. It is getting frustrating the trucks that are out there are high kilometerage junk. I'am also looking for a 4x4 which is a rare find. One of the guys I work with says buy new and finance the truck over 5 years so if I buy a 06-07 F-450 4x4 for 48,000 that doesn't include a dump box. My current truck is a 95 F-450 it needs work and I'am getting tired of working on old trucks its never ending repairs. Do you guys think the new trucks are worth buying and which is better lease or bank loan and buy the truck ?
