Looking for a V10 owner in central OH

With all of the debates about how the PSD stacks up against the V10, I've decided I want to do a real world test. Unfortunately, since many involved in the debate live in Texas, I have to go hunting for someone with a comparable truck.

I live in Grove City, OH which is right outside of Columbus. Ideally I'd like to find someone with a 3V V10, preferably with the automatic transmission. I'd like to meet up sometime this weekend to drag around heavy things for awhile. I can provide the trailer, and I'll have it loaded to somewhere between 9-10,000 lbs. I was thinking we could try both city, highway, and the nastiest hills we can find with both trucks, and then we could both come back on FTE and post the results.

Anyone interested? I'll be home this weekend...

If I get any work in that neck of the woods I'd be more than happy to take you up on that offer. We could pull 9-10K, But I've pulled 12-13K already and the combo engine/gears/dually is pretty sweet. I'd like to see how the dsl pulls, only had dsl in the big boy toys on the job site. Nothing like a dsl grunting with no problem pulling a load brings a smile every time.

That works for me. With my current job I'm only home once every few weeks, for 3 or 4 days at a time. I'll probably be home between Friday and Tuesday or so. Bigger trailer works for me, the biggest I have is only rated at 10K GVW, and I don't wanna overload it. Only issue is that I don't have a gooseneck or 5th wheel hitch.

Anyone else interested in joining the fun?

On edit: Just saw your post, Bill. 2Vs are welcome, as are any other SDs who wanna have a little fun, whatever engine may be in it.

You should post your test plan here before you do it. Otherwise, people are just going to complain about what you did and deny it was legit.

Well I'd drop by but I wont have any freetime until... I dont know... maybe next year I got a ton to do before it gets cold, and hope to have some time to hunt this year.

Besides, 10k shouldnt be an issue for either. And it shouldnt be much a surprise the diesel will pull a bit easier. IMO its not that the V10 is 'stronger' or pulls easier cause it aint, but it can still do what you want it to do and cost less with less possibly headaches and repairs down the road. But it would be fun just to compare em.

Used to live in Gahanna, finally moved back to the county - towards mt vernon ways. Still work in downtown and youll see my CC LB 350 parked in the arena parking garage lol. I got a couple special parking spots picked out, they are the only ones I can fit into. Good thing I get to work before 6am when its still empty! Still waiting for them to leave a note on my truck saying i cant park it in there because its too big but they havent yet.

You're right, the only problem is that I haven't come up with a good one yet. I wanted to talk it over with whoever decided to come out and play, so we could get a plan worked out that sounded good to us.

Works for me, but my truck won't fit in my trailer. A 2WD might. And a V10 powered truck may even be light enough not to break my ramp door!

All are welcome, regardless of engine. That's why I posted it here. Yeah, I'm most interested in V10 competition, but I have a lot of respect for the 5.4, and it would be interesting to compare.

If you can make it down this way, come on down. I don't think I'll have the time to travel all the way up there, though. I had a similar '07 F150 that I traded in on this truck. For a half ton, it did an admirable job with 9,000 lbs.

The bold print above is why I'm interested! As a PSD owner, I truly believe the V10 is the better value engine here. I don't expect it to handle things quite as easily, but at the same time I believe it's the best gasoline engine available to tow with, and I think a 3V like yours would give my truck quite a run for it's money.

Pretty country up there, my sister moved to Mount Vernon a year or two ago. I get up there every once and awhile, but it's a bit of a hike for someone who has no free time. Maybe next time!

That was my first thought as the V10 is the one I'm most interested in. But I'm also interested in any other Ford trucks that wanted to compare, that's why I posted here.

Thanks for the replies everyone!

I don't need to come. I have put my V10 up against a friends 6.4 pulling similar loads on long hills between 4-7000 ft. When his PS wasn't broke in and had a problem I could out pull him on the hills at lower elevation. Now with his computer problem fixed and some more miles on the 6.4 it's not even close. The V10 isn't in the game. Still pulls good for a gasser but can't compete with the turbo.



BTW, do you have real hills in OH, or is the hump where the interstate goes over the under pass considered a tough pull??
