It's great for stuff like this. Don't want to use my nice truck for company purposes, especially when you're loading it with a forklift. I'm not worried about damaging this truck so it's no big deal, and it handled the load like it wasn't even there.

That's only half of what we've done so far, which is only half of what we're doing total. haha. Mod bug is on BTW, but for some reason it has to do with the diesel lol.

You're probably right, but surprisingly if I were to get rid of any of my trucks it would probably be the Ranger. This F350 was my daily for a couple of weeks when I sold my F150 and my wife also drove it while we were looking for her Expedition. It's a good daily driver and a good workhorse at the same time. Unfortunately the poor old Ranger sits in the garage doing nothing 99% of the time.

That 350 would look good with something with an offset and a set of dura's.

You know I'm really not too sure. The truck doesn't have a tripodometer and I never remember to look at how many miles are on it when I fill it up, so I've never calculated it. It doesn't do great though, I'd guess right around 10. All city of course.

Thanks haha. I'm not going to sell the Ranger, but it would probably be the first to go if I had to get rid of one. It's really useless nowadays and just sits there doing nothing lol.
