Wow Chris!! I hope you didn't take that picture yourself @ 70MPH !! Are those aftermarket or factory mirrors?

I love my truck! And nothing has slowed it down yet! Towing my 30' Scarab down to Key West it runs at 75-80 mph the whole time and only wants to go faster!!! Yes the MPG sucks a bit but hey! Try it with anything less of a truck and youll be sucking double!!! So i cant complain!!!
Oh and she's still for sale if anyone is interested!!

Medicine Man, thanks for the info on the mirrors. One of the trucks I'm looking at has extended mirrors. I'll try them this weekend.

Thanks for the info Chris. Now, I just gotta decide 2WD crew cab or 4WD ext cab (I'm getting used to the dually now).

the tires are the new ProComp Xterrain's in a 315/75R16 or the equivalant of 35.12.5-16 and the nice thing about them is they have the D load range on them so they can take a nice load too!
The lift is a Superlift 5.5" system and it has the ProComp Trac bars on the rear as well.
Its got the Hypertech power programmer to compensate for the correct speedo readout and shifting pattern. I never bothered to program the performance side cause why bother? Its not a race truck!! Even though at its size it has suprised many a low-rider rice burner!!! hehehe

If anyone wants any other pics of the truck just let me know and i'll email them to ya!

I have a 1999 F350 4 x 4 Lariat V10 Dually. Prior I had a 95 Suburban 2500 454 4x4 . The ford kickes it but when towing. lateral stability is much better with the duallys. 4 x4 whorks great in michigan and helps on slippery ramps. It is definatly the best I have ever had. The V-10 can pull my boat at 75Mph @3000 RPM dosent lag at all. Big highway hills it drops down to 2nd and will do 60 - 65
