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.

Knowing how the bacon gets made rarely entices us and, in the same vein, the same usually goes for knowing about how new cars get painted. But in both instances, however, quality - or a lack thereof - is instantly obvious. In terms of the latter, Ford is showing off its new paint quality process with 3D Dirt Detection Technology to find imperfections in vehicle paint more easily and more quickly.
Fri, 01 Feb 2013 13:31:00 EST
This process - being performed on the F-150 SVT Raptor above - uses 16 computer-controlled cameras to create a three-dimensional model (inset) of the vehicle to detect flaws in the paint including dirt particles, which can then be buffed out manually. Ford says this new technology cuts down on time spent looking for paint flaws and gives workers more time to correct those that are discovered.
Currently, Ford only uses its 3D Dirt Detection Technology system at three factories (the Dearborn, MI facility, along with those in Louisville, Kentucky and Valencia, Spain), but it will soon spread to five more plants in North America. Ford has released a video and press release for this innovative and unexpectedly interesting process, both of which are posted below.
Consumer Reports has released its annual Car-Brand Perception Survey, and the list looks awfully familiar. The top six brands are identical to last year's results, with Toyota, Ford and Honda continuing to occupy the podium. All told, Toyota walked away with 133 points, putting it 15 ahead of second-place Ford. Honda jumped 26 points this year, narrowing Ford's lead to just four points in total.

Consumer Reports polls buyers from across the country on how they see multiple brands in seven categories, including quality, safety, value, performance, design/style, technology/innovation and environmentally friendly/green. Researchers then combine the findings to come up with the total brand score.
While value and performance remain important to buyers, CR found quality and safety are still on top when it comes to significance. Scion and Mitsubishi found themselves at the bottom of the pack with the worst score of all, tied at just six points. Ram, Fiat and Mini filled out the lowest five with scores of seven, eight and 10 points, respectively. You can read the full press release below for more information, or head over to the Consumer Reports site.
Not that it means anything beyond bragging rights, but if you're fixated on the positions of domestic automakers on the annual Fortune 500 list, both General Motors and Ford are still on it but they've slipped a couple of notches. The list ranks American companies and they're ordered solely by revenue. GM, fifth last year, came in seventh, while Ford fell from ninth to tenth even though both companies saw small gains in annual revenue.
GM's $152.3 billion in revenue was less than a third of that of the first company on the list: Wal-Mart, which regained the title from Exxon Mobil. Berkshire Hathaway and Apple are the firms that moved GM down. Ford, displaced by energy company Valero, had $134.3 billion in revenue.
On a side note, profitability isn't a factor, but both GM and Ford were down in this year's list compared to last year's: GM declined from $9.2 billion to $6.2 billion, Ford fell from $20.2 billion to $5.6 billion. If profits were included, Exxon Mobil would probably still be king: although the energy company made almost $20 billion less in revenue than Wal-Mart's $469.2 billion, it posted $44.9 billion in profit compared to Wal-Mart's $17 billion.
