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.

It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.
Mon, 28 Jul 2014 18:45:00 EST
When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
Every pickup truck commercial has the brand trying to convince us that its model is the biggest, brawniest vehicle on the block. But Ford and Ram appear ready to really throw down the gauntlet and scrap over the towing figures for their heavy-duty models, and it could potentially end up in court.
Thu, 23 May 2013 08:01:00 EST
The issue revolves around what it means to be best in class. Ford claims that its 2015 F-450 (pictured above) has a max tow rating of 31,200 pounds, compared to 30,000 pounds for the Ram 3500 (right). However, both companies market these heavy haulers as having the top towing in their class. According to Automotive News, Ford is threatening legal action if Ram doesn't back down.
The situation isn't as simple as just comparing the numbers, though. First, the two companies calculate their towing capacities differently. Ram adheres to the SAE J2807 rating, while Ford uses its own internal system. Although, as the company introduces new models, they are certified using the SAE standard. "When an all-new F-Series Super Duty is introduced, it also will use SAE J2807," said Ford to Autoblog in an emailed statement.
Ford began manufacturing cars in Australia in 1925 with the Model T. In 2016, Ford will stop manufacturing cars Down Under, including the Falcon and the Territory SUV. Ford Australia CEO Bob Graziano has reportedly confirmed the closure of the company's Broadmeadows assembly plant and the Geelong engine plant, both in the state of Victoria. There will be 650 jobs lost at Broadmeadows, 510 sacrificed at Geelong. Of the roughly 3,000 workers the Blue Oval has in Australia, it's said it will try to retain about 1,000 of them at its R&D and product development facilities.
The writing hasn't just been on the wall, it's been a regular item in all the papers and on Ford's bottom line for years. As recently as 2003, Ford sold nearly 75,000 Falcons, but over the next four years, annual sales dropped by something like 10,000 units, and over the last two years, it has sold less than 20,000 per year. It isn't only Ford that has suffered - sales of the other large, locally produced sedan, the Holden Commodore, have also gone over the precipice, triggering the same kind of angst about Holden's continued existence. Ford is the smallest of Australia's local automakers, Holden and Toyota the others, and has posted losses of $AUD141 million last year ($136M US) and $AUD600 million ($580M US) in the past five years. Graziano said the cost of manufacturing is simply too expensive in the country, twice as high as Europe and three times as high as Asia, and there no way to make a business case for staying in the country.
In January 2012, Ford Australia announced it would stay in the country until at least 2016, but by July of the same year, most outside observers were quietly declaring that 2016 would be the last year of Ford Down Under, and even the speculation was making other observers nervous. Ford received money from the Victorian government last year to aid its refresh of the Falcon and Territory, which will continue on schedule for the 2014 model year. A front- and all-wheel-drive sedan on a global platform is predicted to replace the Falcon, with some other SUV expected to replace the Territory. The company says it still intends to expand its lineup in the country.
