Assuming you could afford the truck, the first tire change would be a shock. Sounds like it would pull whatever you hooked up to it, however.

No John, I could buy two F-350 for what a F-554 would cost. It is a cool truck but not for me. You need one, you would look great in it.

It probably gets terrable milage with the gear ratio, along with the clearance between the bed and the trailer, you'll be running a flat bed or a custume bed. It is a beautiful truck though. I didnt see any price on that truck Don did you happen to get that? it would look nice but I think I'll keep what I got its paid for, Ha Ha.

That thar is a Texas truck! Would take a lift to get us old folks into the cab. Don't want to put a Cummins in it. That would ruin it.

Truck cost is $80,000 to $120,000 or more depending on type of cab and options. Spending that much for a truck, you don't worry about cost of fuel and tires. For most of us, we would have to win the lottery to have a truck like that.

Yeah, they had a Lariat on the site that was only $101,400 - wonder if you get a free Ford hat with that?
