Who here misses the simplicity of a regular cab pick up truck?

Local dealer has an F450 lariat crew, but the damn thing doesn’t have the5th wheel prep. Must have had a big bumper pull or something. I’m interested in it because the turning radius of the 450 is supposed to be 10’ shorter than the 350 I have.
You have quite the tow truck on your hands, such mobility.
I've owned a 17' DRW CC F-350 too and the turning radius is ridiculous. If you haven't done so, test drive the 450 back to back with your 350. The 5th wheel is easily added.

Whoa!!That thing is awesome! How does it ride with the shorter wheelbase vs the crew?
The ride is what you would expect, rougher than the extra 34" of the Crew cab. I changed the shocks and added air bags, combined they help out.

My dads 2007 Ram and my 2012 Power Wagon. I will say his truck is fun to zip around in, but I could never trade it for a Crew Cab.

Are you guys saying the F450 turning radius is "insane" as in bad/awful?

I have to chuckle a bit to myself at the thought of an 'Off Road' F450.
I know it's a great pkg (for many reasons) to have on a PU, but just how many ppl actually do any 'real' off roading in an F450 - LOL.

We have 450 and 550 service wagons at the electrical utility that I retired from and they got PLENTY of off road action.
Of course with the ariel boom and tool boxes they are not real good off road trucks!
But it sure beats the hell out of rigging and climbing!

Elementary, my dear Decay, they don't have the "Off Road" decals, do they?

I've always had the biggest heaviest trucks out of everyone I hang out with, and I usually get called to get them out of whatever mess they're in. I always warn them... they need to have someone else on speed dial that can get ME out if I get stuck, or there is no way I'm coming out.

Man, that's nice, and now you really made me miss mine.

It was my daily driver for about 10 years, had a Banks turbo, 700R4, 3/4-ton axles with 4.10s, and a bunch of other stuff.
With its crooked grill guard and generally not pristine outwardly appearance, it was great in Los Angeles traffic. IMG_4021.JPG

Wow, I thought I lucked when finding one with just over 13,000 on it.
A/C? I put a fan on the dash, which when it was hot turned out to be worse than nothing. The roof vent probably helped a lot more.

Have had my M1008 for 10 years now, not getting rid of that one. But should sell the 7,000-mile "old" M1031.
