The poll only gives me 10 options, there is an "anything above 350" choice.

Upgraded from a 2006 F250 6.0 diesel to a F350 6.7 diesel, mainly because the last repair on the F250 ran $2500. This was after several previous semi expensive repairs to the 6.0. DW even agreed something had to change. Love the way the dually rides, tows, and performs. A friend rode in the truck for the first time last week and told me it was the most comfortable truck he has ever ridden in. AS for the F250, I was well pleased with it for the 12 yrs I drove it and hope those of you that have the 6.0's have a trouble free run with your trucks.

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.

I could not be any happier with my truck. It's a towing machine!

Towing our 2017 Eagle with a F350 Super Duty XLT gasser and we couldn't be more pleased. We purchased her used last June with 17k miles complete with tow package. To my surprise, she only has a 26 gallon fuel tank which means we stop too often. Will explore auxiliary tanks when we get home or maybe trade up.

Very Nice truck and trailer. Highland Ridge/ Open Range make some very nice trailers. Safe travels maybe we will see you on the road.

I tow with a 2017 GMC 3500 srw standard bed 4x4 Duramax. I was wondering if anyone else has a standard bed 3500. Mine is the only one I have come across or seen advertised. I did a search for them and all I could find were long beds.

I have the same, but its a Silverado. Didn't want a long bed cause parking is a issue.

Just upgraded from a 1500 to F-250 and looking forward to a much improved towing experience as well as being able to upgrade the TT in the near future.

Yes the 06 F250 was stone stock, nothing added, nothing deleted.

Thanks, I want to feel what too much power is while towing my 314BHDS. The 6.2 is a good engine, but she is pushing her limits with that trailer, and trying to find an accommodating gas station builds anxiety.
