    Thanks Jefe, You are an inspiration! I will certainly be adding to my list the GEN II 24-valve Cummins. I see in your thread "The old gal is being put out to pasture" that you may be getting the NorthStar Laredo SC. Does the Laredo also slide into a long bed? Also Jefe, what is your opinion of...

    Thanks, been looking at the '96-'98 2500 Cummins lately...

    Thanks all, I feel like I'm being buffeted by the Diesel vs. Gas storm. I'm enjoying researching everything. Hypothetically... What if I were to sometimes pull, for example, a TT with a wet weight of ~6000# with an F350 6.2 SRW along with the Lance 865 loaded on at the same time?

    Thank you, I haven't given up on the Diesel yet, especially looking at the availability of 350's/3500's.

    And again, excellent points! Thanks. Does anyone buy a Dodge 3500 with the Hemi?

    Excellent points, thanks. I am still open to the older diesels. My brother has a 2000 F350 that's still going. Tough to find the 2500/3500 Dodge Cummins 4x4's in SoCal at the moment. I'm always looking though.

    A custom aluminum would be sweet. :) Maybe someday, much appreciated.

    Yes sir that's it. I was looking at flat bed dimensions and thought it would be more.

    Thanks for talking me off the cliff ;) How do you like the 5.4?

    My thinking as well, and less repair costs.

    I think I may have worded it wrong? Is the 24" from the bed of the truck to the bottom of the Lance cabover? IE about the same distance as from the bed of the truck to the top of your F250 cab? I thought it might be in the 40"+ range? Thanks!

    2011-2016 Ford F-250 SCSB 4x4 Gas 6.2 with Lance 865

    Thanks Mike, If it wouldn't be too much trouble... I would like to know the measurement from the bottom of the 865 to the bottom of the cabover? I've been searching dimensions for the Lance 865 but no luck on that particular measurement. I'm curious just in case I run across a flatbed that...

    2011-2016 Ford F-250 SCSB 4x4 Gas 6.2 with Lance 865

    Thanks guys, This has given me something to think about... My next worry is if going to a 1 ton, whether or not to get a diesel. If I buy a used 1 ton with a diesel and it dies 6 months after I buy it, the $12k rebuild cost would really suck, unless I did it myself. Haven't rebuilt a motor in a...

    I'm considering the 2011-2016 Ford F-250 Super Cab 6.2 4x4 with the Lance 865 pulling a 5x8 off-road cargo carrier with a Honda XL 230 inside. Looking at the numbers it seems that I may need a 1 ton? Any thoughts? Much appreciated
