How are they mechanically-what kind of issues do they have?
What kind of fuel mileage do they get?
Would you buy this truck or a Dodge 3500??
Issues are egr problems if not carefull.
PPPPOOORRR fuel mileage, but who care about mileage when towing? More than likely this truck will have 4.88 gears which means you can haul ust about anything you hook to it, but you will need stock in a fuel company as well. Guessing if driven right with around a 14-klb load you will see around 9 to 10mpg.....
Depending on what you are hauling... If you are hauling something like a 3 or 4 horse 10' SW trailer the 3500 Dodge is the way to go, but if your talking a 4 horse with a 14' or large SW traile I would sure look close at the F-550.
