Go for the F450 or F550 crew cab 4x4 and you will be set.

Mike,

I think it just boils down to what are your needs going to be. Your F350 will pull your 3305 fine. But what are you going to put inside? Quads, Harley's, water toys, Bar stools!!!

Are you ever going to get a jeep? I don't think a jeep will fit inside anyway. And where are you planning to take your toys? Glamis/Dumont areas where you can get by with a 2x4, Pismo where I would recomend at least a 4x4, deeper into nasty stuff where you definately need a 4x4? Or on the highway?

From listening to you about "secret places" you need a 4x4. Now here's your dilema. Is the ability to get back into those secret spots, where you are right a SRW is probally better than a DRW, more important than the added stability of a DRW on the highways and byways you need to take to get there. And with the bigger trailer you now have, will you still be able to get back into the secret spots.

For me, the dually has never been a problem anywhere we have gone. I was able to get into and out of both Dumont and Glamis, I can get back into Dove Springs, and as you know we do ALOT of freeway traveling to find our secret spots. There have been a few times I wished I had a 4x4. And when I do get a new truck it just might be one. I have always felt safe and in control of my truck and trailer, more so than I did with the smaller WW and a 1/2 ton Dodge which was a good combo also.

I probally will never go back to a smaller trailer, so for me it will always be a dually.

There are alot of SRW trucks pulling big rigs out there. You are already in a 1 ton and it does have the grunt to pull your new WW.

This ones gonna be your call bud, get the truck you think is going to be the best for your needs. (PSSS... Get a Dually)

Just heard that Ford is matching GM's deal to lower prices to employee prices from now thru Aug 1.

Hey Mikey:

That Clarkie Baby is sure a smoothie, isn't he ("PSSS...Get A Dually")??!!

Like I said- I'm amazed at the difference...when we get together, you'll have to drive ours around to feel it out- you'll be down at the Ferd dealer in no time! (PSSS...Get A Dually, AGAIN!)
