RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Hello, Interesting thread. I have taught Dave Ramsey FPU for ten years. He has good advice on personal finances. Interesting you mention teaching Dave Ramsey FPU. I used to listen with great fascination to his spot on Siruis years ago. Channel 151? I forget now. I learned a lot, even though I didnt always agree with some concepts, he had the credentials, so I knew he was right and I was wrong. Wonderful teacher! And he was very much against leasing a vehicle. Now, do you remember what he called a lease? Dave Ramsey does not like a lease, for good reason. He also likes buying used. We have bought DD's off a three year lease return for a good price. We bought the F250 new because that was the only way to have the 7.3L, 4.30, ten speed and LB in one truck. So far so good. This is a keeper!

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Hello, Interesting thread. I have taught Dave Ramsey FPU for ten years. He has good advice on personal finances. We have paid cash for all vehicles since 1992. We bought the new fifth wheel and gas F250 this year. I ordered and got a good price by flying to Houston, picking up the F250 there and the fifth wheel on the way back in Las Cruces. This is probably the last RV (three prior class A RVs, last one a 40DP with a Cummins 400ISL) and most likely the final truck. I like the gas engine. About 80% DD and 20% towing. Yes, it does rev higher on hills towing, but it is rated for 26K GCWR and does fine at 21K. The TFLTruck F250 pulled 16K up the IKE (to 11,000 feet at Eisenhower Pass). My truck rated the top of the gassers for TFL on the IKE. I pull 14K up and down the coast of CA and it does fine. If you tow heavy and often, you should have a diesel. If you are like me and tow low altitude and a reasonable load with a ten speed tranny and 4.30 rear axle, you will be fine with a gasser. Best, Crespro

RE: Axle Ratio, new truck

I have the F-250 with 7.3 gas and 4.30 axle. When I am not towing, it runs right at 2,000 rpm at 65 in 10th gear. If you order, by all means get the 4.30.

RE: Dualie vs SRW benefits?

The difference in price between a diesel srw and a 7.3 litre gasoline powered dually is about $6500. You’d likely get $5k of that back 12 years down the road. For a 15k fiver I think you’d be much happier with a SRW diesel than a dual wheeled gasser. Diesel Price on same F-350 with $3K discount is about $64K or $10K more. I agree the diesel is a great engine (had a 400 ISL in my Monaco), but the 7.3 gas is a good option up to 16K. If you plan to tow over 16K, you clearly should have a diesel.

RE: Dualie vs SRW benefits?

This F-350 DRW could be ordered with about $3K discount. For $54K, this is a fine vehicle. Yes, it does not pull like a diesel, but for a fifth wheel up to about 16K, it will perform quite well.
