Good looking truck.

Makes me sad to think you get the same gas mileage as I do in a V8 Ranger.

Damnit.

I like it all but that dang dual exhaust.

I wish I would have bought a 2008-2010 Gas...

I know you said you aren't going to stick with the black, but damn if you got it done properly (not the spray-on crap), it would look damn nice! Even with the beige (I think that's what you said you were going with?) it's a great looking truck!

Ya I hate it but it's going soon enough just don't look at it. And I love this thing it's so nice not worrying about it starting in the morning I'm happy I didn't get the 6.0.

I never worry that mine wont start, but the short trips, expensive diesel, expensive replacement parts, expensive maintenance, etc all adds way up. too much to really justify the need for a diesel.

I really only think someone would need or want a diesel unless they tow or travel all the time. Otherwise its a good toy, for like lifting, racing, etc..(hobby)

Nice truck I drive my dads all the time extended cab long box with the 5.4. It has the 4.10 LS rear end and is terrible on gas but it's the old 2v 5.4. I just bought a new truck here too, I miss my ranger but sold it to the family.

more than likely, i only plan on getting a bumper trailer maybe a gooseneck to tow a trail vehicle, we shall see when i get to that point, for now ill continue loving every minute of it minus the ugly paint and terrible exhaust with small tires

An F350 like that with a 5.4 is kinda rare in anything but a fleet truck, nice find! It'll look nice with silver on the bottom or even just all white would look good.
