Nice Ford, nothing wrong with that. Just think of all the new mods that you can do. Enjoy!!
I would never knock someone else's choice. Ford, Cheby, Nissan, whatever floats (or pulls) your boat. There really is no basis in saying one engine breaks more, one truck rusts faster, one looks better, etc. I'd sooner knock someone for buying a 3500 dually when the heaviest thing they would ever haul is a six-pack, then instantly join the forum and ask about increasing the mpg. That, in my mind, is a mistake. Brand choice is just that, a choice.
I've often thought of going to a 2500 diesel but I just cannot substantiate it. I do tow a 20'+ trailer, but not often enough.I haul my quad around on wknds but but the 1500 handles it fine. Four-wheeling? Got a CJ-7 and a quad, and Rhino with tracks, that's covered. And the math on the fuel costs never come out on my side. Drive 30K a year and maybe save $1000, which with increased maintenance costs and added initial costs would take me 7-8 years to break even.
To me that is too long. Hell I'll get bored of it by then.
