Any powertrain warranty left on ol JG Roy? Might get a good deal on a 19 in time, but I don't think you'll see the 20's until late fall. You could pick up a new 2020 at Koons in VA when you get there.

You never know Eric. 2017 redesign was supposed to be late but ordering started in June and they started landing in late August... Personally, I'd hold out for the new ones. Power bump will be big and the 10 speed...

I'll be towing heavy for awhile........ So, yep, same F-350..... Looking For the advanced electronic systems AND the 10-speed transmission....

I wouldn't upgrade on behalf of your odometer. Upgrade because you want to.
I'm at 135,000 on mine, thinking the '21s will be it. Give em a year to work any bugs out is my excuse, but it's really just because that's much more financially prudent..... lol

If you're staying DRW then I would absolutely go 450. The wide track front end makes it turn tighter than an F150. Absolutely worth it and not much more $.

If I was in the market for a dually I wouldn't be aiming for a 2020 but I would be leaning towards the F-450. Like you said, let them work the bugs out and get the 2021. If I was in a hurry, the 2019 wouldn't bother me at all. The 6r140 is a proven beast of a transmission.

I don't think I could pass on the 10sp or the 1k of torque. New stuff doesn't scare me much...

I'm still thinking 2023. Not that I'm in any rush, just the truck will be 10 years old by then. Most likely staying dually and thinking I will likely go 450 at that point, mainly for the widetrack front axle. I do prefer the look of the 19.5's over the 17's and know the tradeoffs of making that jump.

But currently I'm in Montys club with 43k on my 13. Putting some miles on it now, but doubt it will make 100k before 2023. Although I have already kept this one longer than any other truck.................

$900 and 2 hours gets you a 55 gallon fuel tank... Love mine... except when doing multiple authorizations at the pump...

I've been considering that for mine. It sucks having the low fuel light come on at just over 200 miles while towing. Of course, with 0 miles to E, I can still only squeeze in about 28 gallons, so I know I've got plenty to spare.
