You 'Strokin ?? Not gonna buy a new one this late in life and don't "need" a 'Stroker .. Rented an '18 250 gas burner 4WD crew cab XLT in May and put about 900 miles on it .. Rode like a dream boat .. Hopin' they will put the new 7 liter in the SD ..

I will look for a good used one , love to find a 450 or 550 with the wide track front end .. Lot here has a '11 PS 350 Lariat dually , haven't looked at it up close , has sat there for over a month and he has knocked 4 off his starting price and is still at 26 , proud of them indeed ..

Yes, definitely strokin'! I looked into a new truck a few years ago but a $66K price tag had me running... didn't want one that badly! LOL I found my 2010 at a killer price and low miles so I jumped. My fiancé had one with the 7.3 some years ago and wishes they would come back with that one.

I had a 7.3 , they are sweet .... Next year or year after I will either get a new or year old gas burner 250 or 350 or find a PS within reason , people around here are proud of them .. I think they have worked a lot of the 6 point uh oh and 6-4 issues out with the new motor .. But I think most issues people had with those was when they started messing with them , not knowing wtf they are doing ..

If I had a boat load of cash , I'd drop a 6.7 come a long in the SD and hitch it all to an Allison gearbox .. or build a super single 450 or 550 . Guy in Mississippi has a super single crew cab 650 with a bed in it and a 7.2 cat for sale .. Another dood in georgia builds custom 650's and 750's , along with a real sweet price tag to boot ..

That's my issue right now. I'm in my mid-fifties and really don't want to take on a huge payment. I dropped the Jeep off yesterday for recall work and passed a Ford dealership that was right next door. There was a BEAUTIFUL red F350 there... with a $91K price tag! Maybe when the Powerball Commission notifies me of my winnings?

I'm with ya brother, I turn 67 next month. Got a fair amount of physical ailments but based on the progression the last couple years, it'll be the arthritis that eventually keeps me from riding. I was lucky enough to find love for the second time in my adult life (after a divorce after 40 years of marriage). My GF and I get up each day with a good attitude and a sense of adventure and a determination not to give in to the aches and pains. Our primary goal is to have a little fun and a few laughs each day. Life is so much better with a smile and a positive attitude.
