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.

Don't look for a tremendous shifts in automotive market share over the next three years because it might not be coming. That's at least according to the annual Car Wars report by John Murphy, from Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Research.
Fri, 30 May 2014 11:30:00 EST
In the report's analysis of automakers' market share from 2013 to 2017, it predicts only small changes among the major companies. Ford and Honda see the biggest positive effect with an estimated 0.5 percent increase in their shares over the next three years; to 16.2 percent and 10.3 percent respectively. On the flip side, European automakers and Nissan are expected to lose 0.2 percent each to fall to 8.3 percent and 7.8 percent each respectively. The rest of the industry is predicted to hold steady as it is now.
The biggest loser in that prediction might be Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles. The report certainly throws a wet blanket on its plan for significant gains in market share. Murphy told The Detroit News that the company's goal was "almost unattainable."
Automakers getting clever about disguising development vehicles isn't anything new. Between mules wearing the sheetmetal of other cars and prototypes decked out in as much camouflage as is practical, automakers know how to make it very difficult for the general public to get an exact idea of what kind of vehicle is in development. Ford, though, is rapidly becoming the master.

We knew that the Blue Oval originally tested the durability of the aluminum construction being used for the 2015 F-150 by building an all-aluminum 2014 truck and entering it in the Baja 1000 off-road race. That's no longer a secret. What we didn't know, though, is that the aluminum development dates back to before even that, and that some of the people in question had no idea what it was they were working with.
Ford says this is the first time prototypes have ever been handed over to the public.
General Motors isn't the only Detroit automaker posting falling profits in the first quarter. Ford just released its Q1 2014 financial data, and it reported a net income of $989 million, down $622 million from Q1 2013. The drop is partially blamed on higher warranty and recall expenses than the company had anticipated.
Financially, Ford suffered a rough quarter almost across the board. Its pre-tax profit of $1.4 billion was also down $765 million from a year ago. Things were even worse in the North American market where operating profit fell significantly to $1.5 billion, down from $2.392 billion in Q1 2013. However, its global revenue ticked up slightly to $35.9 billion, from $35.6 billion in this period in 2013.
Ford admitted that it spent about $900 million on expenses that it hadn't planned for during this quarter. According to Reuters, the company paid about $400 million in additional warranty and recall costs in North America. The automaker didn't explain why the costs were so much higher than expected. However, in the last three months, Ford has had several recalls, including on the 2001-2004 Escape for rust, Explorer for its steering, Edge for its fuel line and others.
