    Default I guss this is goodbye

    Well guys I did something yesterday that I said I would not do. I went to the Anderson Auto Mall to look at a 2500 HD they had and in the proses they made me an offer I could not refuse, even though I wanted to. they brought up an 06 F250 4WD FX4 with the 6.0 powerstroke turbo diesel with 26K and said I could buy it for23K It has pretty much everything, so I took it for a test drive. It runs, rides,looks and drives great, so I bought it. I will understand if you hate me, but it was a budgetary thing. I will post some pics if you want to see them. A huge thank you to everyone here for all the help you have given me in the short time I have been here. Take Care and GOD Bless. Chris

    Sorry to see you go man! I have to say, I can't blame you for jumping on that deal. Sounds like a sweet truck (even though it's a Ford )! Post some pics of it....if Steve will let you, haha.

    There's nothing wrong with what you bought. All the new turbo-diesel trucks have made vast improvements in the last few years and are all good in their own way. You will enjoy your new truck no doubt but that does not mean you have to be a stranger. Congrats on your purchase!

    Best of luck with your new truck! I had a '01 Power Stroke C/C SWB w/7.3L and really hated to part with it. Sounds like great deal!

    just cuz you got a ford doesnt mean you cant stick around. they are decent trucks and ive driven 6.0 litres before. that was a good deal but tho it is diesel isnt gonna get great gas mileage. you should have asked if he had any cummins there haha
