I presently own an '06 F250 extended cab long box 4x4 with the 6.0 powerstroke.
I have a 33' Cris-craft that weighs in at 12,000 lbs give or take + the weight of the trailer... whatever that may be, that I have to haul from southern Ontario to Vancouver Island so I'm looking at an '03 F350 crew cab 4x4 long box dually also 6.0 diesel.
(both trucks are automatic and close to 400,000kms)
Would going with the '03 be a + or a - for me?
Thanks in advance for any input.

The body's in pretty rough shape on my '06
Would it be a good swap to put it in the '03?

Just my opinion, I'd never go back to a leaf spring front end truck if I had a choice. :lol:

If you have the time, the place and good mechanics background here's what i would do.

IF you really like the the CC of the 03 and IF the 03 is in really good shape. I would take the 06 engine, front suspension with axel and installing it on the 03 with everything else you like off the 06.

If the drivetrain is solid and you already know the vehicle, why tempt fate? A little bit of body cancer isn't a deal breaker but an unknown engine/transmission sure could be.
