I bought a 2008 F 350 Diesel Dually, crew cab Lariat long bed and I love it! I own a landscaping company and almost every mile I drive the truck is there towing trailers or hauling topsoil, mulch, stone etc. No plowing but I would love to see it do that next winter.
The truck starts up and runs awesome, even when it's cold out, no problems getting warm inside with the supplemental cab heater. The interior is very inviting and allows us to get work done on the drive back to the office or to job sites. Ample space in the back row for people/tools or whatever. Leather seats are a breeze to clean. Other things I love are the rear back-up sensor that allows us to hitch right up without repositioning the truck. Integrated Trailer controller works like the $200 after market one we had on our last truck. The transmission we have is the 4.10 limited slip, seemless shifting and power delivery from the engine to the wheels, even when it's pulling 14,000#. It moves without crying or any hickups.
The exterior is nice, like the new bold design. Heated mirrors and powerscope help a lot when you have trailers behind you or for changing lanes...and checking on the load periodically.
Ever since we got this truck we have been playing tons more music because of the 6CD changer as well. Great sound around the whole cabin.
Furthermore, I love the tailgate step!! Why didn't someone do this years ago before we were getting old!!?
Overall, this truck is very comfortable inside, for long drives or short ones. It does work towing or carrying anything. Brakes are responsive and non of that mushy faded feel you get on other trucks. That makes driving more relaxed and comfortable knowing not only the truck can accelerate the load but stop it safely as well.
The only drawback is the fuel economy, stop-n-go driving kills it but the highway we can pull off 14-16 towing or 18-22 empty.
I would strongly recommend this truck to friends and we hope to add them to our growing fleet as we grow in the future.
