Well...I am out a bunch of money but I now have the F-350 Diesel SRW model. For the small percentage of miles I am towing, I feel the Dually is overkill. I know the weights on my future trailer and this truck will handle it. The super crew long bed is plenty big enough....I have parked it a couple times now and that extra 16 inches over my excursion makes a difference....seems like it really sticks out in standard parking places. The truck seems much more heavy duty than my excursion...which is no toy either. I am excited about owning a diesel....this is my first one. The truck looks awsome.... Maybe my next truck in 10 or 15 years will be a dually....Thanks for all your input.
