    Thinking about buying a new Ford super duty truck?

    Maybe you should think again. A lot of the body parts/frame are made from Aluminum and Titanium. Didn't they know Titanium is highly flammable and burns REALLY hot?

    At least there is not much cleanup afterwards. I think it would all fit into a garbage can quite easily.

    My dad use to deliver furniture across states for a buddy and crossed a million miles in his buddies F250.

    I have 220k on my 02 and my dad has around the same on his 99 F350. If taken care of, these trucks will last forever and are nearly bullet proof.

    It's funny when I was looking, my 02 was more expensive than the newer years since everyone wants the 7.3 lol.

    My co worker just spent $9k to fix his Ford F350. The injector pump went out and caused the injectors to also burn up.
