Selling my 2005 F350 Crew Cab Lariat FX4 Dually, that I used to pull new campers from manufacturer to dealers, cross-country. No longer doing this, so I no longer need a truck this substantial.
The truck currently has about 349,600 miles on it, but I do still drive it occasionally, so that may increase.
Bed has fifth wheel rails, trailer wiring extension, and auxiliary 98 gal. TransferFlow fuel tank, with Trax II controller for it on the dash.
ISSPRO EGT and Trans. Temp. gauges in pillar pod.
In-dash Jensen VM9224 touch-screen DVD player.
Exhaust is aftermarket, 3.5" downpipe & cat delete, 4" cat-back exhaust w/ muffler & 5" tip
Tires are in good condition, 10-20k miles left.
At roughly 230k, I installed updated turbo drain and feed, updated pressure regulator, new oil cooler, Bulletproof updated EGR cooler. Has the updated STC fitting in HPOP.
At roughly 240k, I had new head gaskets and ARP head studs installed.
As you should be able to see from the pictures, my truck is not cosmetically perfect. There are a few dings, scratches, bumpers are banged up a bit, etc. Interior is in excellent, but not perfect, condition: the only real "bad" spot is the bottom of the passenger side front armrest, see pics. There are a few minor functional issues, such as the driver's side seat heater is not working. If you want the full list of maintenance & repairs done while I've had the truck, and all the minor issues that I know of, email me and I'll do my best to provide the information you need.
Truck runs and drives great, but does have an injector pecking at the moment. The only ill effect I've noticed is a bit more smoke on start-up, and the extra noise (which is not horrible). If buyer selects buy it now, I'll buy & replace the injector myself, if the buyer wishes. As it is, I would literally drive this truck anywhere, just check the oil, fill up the tanks, and go.
Any questions, please email me. If you want to talk to me on the phone about it, email with your number & a good time to call, or I can reply to your email with my number and availability.
Truck is for sale at a local car lot as well, so this listing may end early if it sells there. If you want to come see the truck, email me and I can give you specifics of where the car lot is located.
There is a bank payoff necessary before I can get the title; I generally need 24 hrs. (business days only) notice to have the title sent to the local branch. Because of this, payment must be a method my bank will accept, in order for them to release the title. This would include cash, cashier's check, possibly bank transfer. Let me know what method you would prefer, if other than cash, and I will verify if they will accept it.
If you wish to have me deliver the truck, I can drive it to your location. If you may be interested in this, email me and we can discuss specifics.

The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck in the United States for the past 37 years, and the best-selling vehicle outright for the past 32. That's quite a legacy, and thus, it's no surprise that Ford worked super-duper-extra hard on creating the all-new, aluminum-bodied 2015 F-150 that debuted at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year.

During an event at the company's headquarters in Dearborn, MI this week, we were able to see all of the ways that Ford endurance tests, not just the new F-150, but all of its vehicles. From examining things like light exposure to interior materials and paint finishes, to making sure that corrosion absolutely does not happen when steel components come in contact with aluminum panels in the new truck. The goal: ensure that the new F-150 is nothing short of "Built Ford Tough."
But that's only a small part of the story. Of course, the new F-150 has to be able to withstand whatever a pickup buyer might throw at it - and truck buyers arguably demand the most from their vehicles. So in an effort to convey just what the new F-150 had to go through before being given the final go-ahead, Ford has released a series of videos, showing how its new halo truck was indeed torture tested.
Ford is on a roll this year, with excellent quarterly earnings and better-than-expected vehicle sales leading to 800 more job opportunities with the Blue Oval. In January, Ford announced that it wanted to hire 2,200 salaried employees, but, since then, that figure has been revised to 3,000, representing a 36-percent increase over original projections. About 1,500 of those jobs remain, 80 percent of which are technical professional positions.

"Engineers and technical professionals are in as much demand as our cars, trucks and SUVs," says Felicia Fields, Ford Group Vice President for Human Resources. Helping to spur this job growth are increasing market share on both the West and East Coast and robust demand for the Ford Escape and F-150.
To find job candidates, Ford is reaching out to them via Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, in addition to the company's corporate career site. The Blue Oval is also ramping up its presence on college campuses.
A national law firm, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, has filed a proposed class action lawsuit whose presupposition is that MyFord Touch is defective. Specifically, the complaint states that the system - as well as the MyLincoln Touch and MyMercury Touch clones - often freeze, fail to respond to voice or touch commands and have issues connecting to mobile phones.
According to Hagens Berman managing partner Steve Berman, MyFord Touch is a theoretically "brilliant idea" that falls short in actual execution. Said Berman in a press release, "In reality, the system is fundamentally flawed, failing to reliably provide functionality, amounting to an inconvenience at best, and a serious safety issue at worst."
Other MFT issues enumerated within the 41-page filing include problems controlling the window defroster, rear-view camera and navigation system. The suit maintains that Ford is aware of the problem but has yet to submit a workable and acceptable solution to MFT customers. Scroll down if you'd like to read the full press release.
