Traded in the toyhauler a few months ago...wife wanted more living area. This truck tows this 16K pound 5'er with ease. Getting 9 to 10 mpg towing depending on speed.

Wow! That looks impressive!

The new SD's are really nice looking.

I can't believe how much they cost. I configured a '19 SD reg cab F350 SRW, and it came out to be $55k.

I was looking at the duallies last year and most listed in the upper 70's and even into the 80K range. Saw the one I bought at a local dealer listing for $66.5K. They came off close to 6K and upped my paid off trade 2K so I was happy with the deal. My truck is a mildly equipped Lariat and does not have the Ultimate package with the sunroof and other stuff I don't need. Very pleased with it so far. Thanks for the compliment!!

If I went with what I got now currently (manual everything, except tranny and the PSD and 4x4), I could get it down to $46k. And probably a LOT less if it's already sitting on someone's lot.

I want a couple extra things, like the up fitter switches, dual HD alternator, 3.55 ls, rear amber wigwags, bed liner, cloth seats, power package (windows/doors) (XL package), remote start, keyless entry, SirusXM, carpet delete, adds it up to $55k quickly. If I could find that on a lot that someone is getting rid of, even if it doesn't include a couple things, I'd be willing to wheel and deal if they could add them on afterwards. But it seems like most of the stuff needs to be ordered from the factory.

Kind of hoping when I start doing my truck shopping that this will happen. There will be one sitting on the lot, that dealer is desperately trying to get rid of and practically give it away. Like the truck I currently have.

Just annoying things cost so much...

You'll have to get lucky to find one with those options or close to it. Just keep looking and good luck!!

Wow... that just looks so amazing.

You should submit that to Ford and ask them to use that for advertising.
