This is my first post in the super duty thread, im mostly in the 87-96 because i have a 97 f350.
Anyways this is my uncles second super duty. it is a 2000 f550 cab and chassis 4x4 with a Vulcan tow bed on it. the wheel lift is rated at 6500 and i think the boom is at 10000. it has a 7.3 with zf6 trans and manual transfer case. we just picked it up for illinois this past saturday. i cleaned it up today since i was off school. its a great looking truck. it only has 110k on it and the bed only looks as if it is 1 or 2 years old. also came with all the original paperwork.
we weren't too sure about the paint job but he figured if that was the only thing he didnt like it could be changed. but when he ordered the push bumper for it b/c it only had stock bumper on it, he told them to paint it whichever color looked best, and it looks alot better with the red push bumper up front. still have to outfit the truck with new equipment
anyways his other superduty is a 02 f550 crew cab dually 4x4 with 7.3,zf6 with auxillery trans on it so it has basically 12 gears, manual transfer case, a locker in the rear and a flat bed on the back. only has 32k on it, its a beautiful truck. he also put the west coast style mirrors on it and removed the small factory tow mirrors. probably going to do that to the tow truck also.
here are the pics
Nice trucks, the mirrors and flames are ridiculous IMO, but other than that look real clean
the flames definitely werent a selling point, but it would have been hard to pass up the trucks setup just because the paint.
and personally i really like the look AND more importantly the function of the western mirrors over the stock towing mirrors. especially make a difference to him when he pulls his 48' enclosed trailer.
but we all have are own opinions haha
