    Wow - What a nice looking ride! We did the opposite - GM to Ford, but they're all good trucks. Any idea what the payload is in the new one?

    Good for you guys! Congratulations. That's going to be a sweet looking rig when all hooked up and going down the road. You will be itching for camping season to start.

    Hi Jim, the payload is 4188. It was really a tough choice between the 2, both sound machines . What really won it is we felt the interior in the GMC is way nicer than the Ford.
    And I really like the turning radius in the GMC, much tighter.
    The Fords interior hasn't changed much in the years between 2003 and now, we felt like we were getting out of our old truck and darn near right back in it.

    Congrats! Don't make me get the itch for a new truck yet. We're trying to get a few more years out of our '02 F350. New trucks are nice, but expensive. I gotta get over buying the new 5th wheel first.

    I ran over to Atlanta and back today pulling a utility trailer--to bring back a bunch of furniture. My 2003 F250 with the 80 hp D-P econo tune was just purring at 75 mph. If my tires weren't so worn, I could easily find my self running in the 80's on the I-285 autobahn around Atlanta.

    At 120,000 miles, the engine is just broken in. I cannot see spending $40K difference for a new F350 as I've got many more miles left. And with leather captain's chairs and the 2 tone paint, it still looks great (if you don't look too close.)
