Lariat, Crew Cab, 8 foot bed
I have been a truck owner my entire life, and they have all been blue in color. This is the first non blue truck I have owned. I recently retired and we want to get a 5th wheel this summer and we needed a decent tow vehicle. The 5th wheel we picked out weighs about 14k pounds, well within the weight limits of this 250 diesel. The power of this truck is amazing (at least to me). Driving home from the dealer, a distance of about 50 miles, I was stuck behind a slow moving dump truck. I awaited my opportunity to pass and when it came I first steadily increased speed and then I got on it a bit. The truck power kicked in and I thought the front wheels were going to lift off of the ground and in nothing flat I was doing 90 mph. I have never owned a vehicle this powerful.

Yeasu FTM400XDR VHF/UHF Amateur Radio. I hold an extra class license. The problem I am having is antenna placement. I was going to use a magnetic mount but.......aluminum. This has yet to be resolved. With the tonneau cover in place, the stake holes are blocked eliminating that as an option as well. I will not drill a hole in the roof.
Extang trifold solid cover.
Wheel and Tire
Continental 18 inch touring tires. With the 176 in wheel base this truck as a wonderful smooth quiet ride.
