2014 F350 Dually

Just picked up a 2014 dually in tuxedo black to tow my fiver. This truck is friggin sweet. It had 21 miles on it. Loaded with Lariat Ultimate package. The radio is far better than my 2011 was. Put 500 miles on it this weekend to break it in. I am truly an enthusiast for these trucks.

Question:
I will be using this truck for daily driving and weekend towing. Think I should install Line-X? I know it"s a great product. I ask because I"ll have a Reese 25k hitch installed in a day or so.

I did it right this time. Bought the extended warranty, enviro guard, and the maintenance plan. I"ll never have to buy DEF again. Rig came with general grabber hts. Is that a good tire to haul heavy?

You had a 2011 6.7L previously, correct?
Throw some pictures our way.

I'd do the line x if it were mine. I had it done on the three previous trucks I owned.

Line x can work around the hitch pucks.

I am really enjoying mine as well.

Ooh ooh ooh! I want to see it! Congrats on the new truck and welcome to the dually club. I drove thru my dealers' lot the other day and looked at the inventory. I had to keep telling myself NO! Can't wait for the photos.

I can't tell you about the LineX. I have had spray-in liners on previous trucks, and intend on having one on this truck, But, after over three years now, I still haven't got it done. I will eventually tho. As for the Generals, again, no idea how they perform. Haven't ever owned a set. Sorry.

I sure do like my dually. Wife and I used it this weekend to go hide in the Black Hills for the weekend. Enjoy your new truck. And don't forget to write.

Looks like you ordered the same truck I did.

I had the dealer do line-x before they installed the reese hitch.
I also have the ultimate package along with a few more extras. But ours is in blue jean metallic.
Put 250 miles on it before I had to tow the new toy hauler home.

Goes back to the dealer wednesday to get allot more goodies added to it.
Drives better than the 12' we traded in. And it's a dually.
