Default Back to a diesel...

Well, I made it almost a year without a diesel and now back into one.

We decided to condense down to one vehicle now that we both work from home and I have a company car. No sense in having two car payments right now.

The Tundra was actually a nice truck but after towing my Polaris Ranger back to Illinois for hunting and get 7-9mpg I was over it.

We discussed it and if we were to have one vehicle, I wanted a diesel back and she approved! Lol

Not a GM but a 2017 Ford F-250. 23,000 miles all stock. I really have liked my 6.7 Ford trucks.

Congratulations on the new truck, I like that color. I have been looking at a few new platinums trying to find that color. The ford interior has came a long way. Good luck with it.

Thanks! The color really grew on me!

You may want to look at the king ranch for that color.

Nice truck! My friend has a Platinum F250 and the interior is so nice compared to GM or Dodge.

Thanks! I agree. This isn’t loaded but it had everything we wanted except leather which we could always add later if needed.

Nice truck! If I buy a new truck anytime soon, I will definitely be considering the F350.

You sure have come a long ways from your old Peoria days. Truck looks great. Couple guys here have loaded duallys as their welding rigs. Really nice trucks. It will be a tough choice if I ever decide to buy a new truck. My 2007 Duramax handles it all pretty well for now.

Hey Ben, I’m not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing?! Lol hope all is well with you and the family!

That was meant as a compliment. I can't believe how fast ten years have gone by. I've still got my white truck with the trans you built. It's been retired back to being the weekend runaround truck and small trailer puller. I've bought a dually to be my welding rig and it's nice to have so much more room. Family is good and growing up fast. Look me up next time you get up this way.
