The F-350 is a real work truck, and when you add the King Ranch package, you get amazing comfort and luxury that you would expect from a Lincoln Navigator. The leather covering the seats and touch areas feels like it comes from a high-end bomber jacket, and amenities like Audiophile sound, navigation, and moonroof give owners a little coddling during the work day. Hey, if your truck makes you money and the cash is coming in, why not drop $59,000 on something that can pay you back a little.

      I can't wait to lower the truck and put spinners on it!

        Great video...I was waiting for the F350 to pull one of the rally cars out of the snow...but no such luck! LOL

        It's been fixed.

      Why is it that I know 3 people who own trucks like this and none of them use them as "work" trucks? They just haul tools around in the back (just in case they need them) and occasionally drag a motorcycle or snowmobile with it. It seems more often than not this kind of truck is used as an extension of ones manhood.

        The Super Duties I see here in the Boston area are typically pulling a large landscaper's trailer or pushing a snow plow.

        I have an older 7.3L TD F350 Crew Cab that I use for pulling my Toy Box. Loaded down with bikes, quads, gear, etc. it really needs the power to pull that load. Of course, it pretty much does not get driven now except for pulling that toy box, or the occasional off-road excusion where I need more space than my jeep.

        I do agree, however, that most of the time I see big TD F250/F350 and 3500 series trucks on the road that they are being used as commuters, not hauling anything.

      In Australia the F350 would be considered to be a "Big Ute" or a "Car". Its 9 ton towing capacity would make it a Light Medium Truck(they are everywhere here). So the Macho aspect does not translate very well. It would be seen as a pain to park and having a limited carrying capacity as well.

      I guess we still haven't reached the point where aerodynamics is a consideration in these things.
        • 6 Years Ago
        A slick front end doesn't have the open grille area needed to cool a big, modern diesel down. I think there are like 7 coolers on this truck, you're not going to move enough air across them all with a plastic deflector like you would on a car.

        A truck like this isn't designed to be a high-speed highway cruiser. People need to understand that different applications have different solutions. It's like saying your blender doesn't make a good cup of coffee. Of course not, it wasn't designed to.

        You make a brick aerodynamic the same way you make everything else aerodynamic, by reducing it's drag coefficient. You think that big slab of chrome is pedestrian friendly? I think a little better aerodynamics would save a ***load of fuel on this thing over it's lifetime.

      i had to borrow a truck the other day.
      it was a 4 door dually 7 liter gasoline.
      i drove it 200 miles and the damn thing drank 25 gallons of gas at $3.40 gal = $85 8mpg average.
      i did have it loaded down with fire wood half the time.

      that really hurts the wallet.
      i would never want to own something like that unless it was paying for itself.

      work truck, as in it usually works on picking up kids from school and taking them to soccer practice.

      A 4x4 truck where a Limited Slip diff is optional and a locker isn't even available. Not my first choice in the truck market.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I still conclude that truck is ugly as sin. Do like that saddle leather interior though.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Come on guys, not even one picture of that amazing engine?
      I'm dissapointed.

      FSM: and others with this stupid mentality..I just dont get it. Why do people bash people who buy bigger vehicles with that insane saying? That is the most annoying thing to say "people buy these for a extension of manhood"..? Morons..for example.. so,when I was 4-5 years old, I used to see trucks,large cars yep old land yachts,sports cars and love and want them,and still do,so your telling me when I was 4 ,I was thinking about a certain part of my body ? What? You are just jealous you cannot afford a truck like this,a Porsche,or some other mode of transport ,as it is usually poor bus riders,or people who truly dont care nor like/understand ones passion for the automobile whether its a truck,musclecar,tuner,exotic ect.. that come up with that stupid saying..People who buy large/sporty/vehicles do not think in your mindset .As I would now asume people who drive boring/little cars are small downthere so they need to show the world they have a tiny manpart .Your saying is so ignorant and stupid you just dont get it..and please dont say that in public because people will look at you and roll eyes and know your a complete tool...and dont forget they are laughing at you and not with you...
