mneal,
Craig's truck is clean as a whistle, and well maintained. I would recommend it, and wait until you hit the horn(s).

Frank,
The dealer that I worked for previously had a mix of GM and Ford trucks...about 5 total. All the trucks were run every day, hard. They had the best service from the DMax/Allison trucks. I remember one truck that had about 45k on it and only ever got two oil changes..nothing else.
The older/1st D Maxes had injector troubles... but that's a small drop in the bucket compared to the early 6.0 PSD.

My D Max is great. You know you guys can test it out any time...

I have a Gas Ford 250 as a work truck. The engine is junk. The truck itself isn't bad, but it doesn't handle or ride anywhere near as well as the chevy does. Both are 9200lb trucks.

The Allison Tranny is FAR better than the trans in the Ford....

Frank,
See the pic above...? I'm working for Evinrude doing dealer development and consumer "education"....


What's next???
It' kills me every day that I don't have a performance boat. I have demos at work, but they barely run 55....
NM really hurt my bank account, so I have to lay off boat ownership for a bit.... But I'll probably wind up with another Pantera when the time comes..... That boat was great.
