Default I get to drive a big one!

Hey guys just wanted to let ya know I started a new job last week and tomorrow I get to take one of our company trucks on a little trip. The truck I'll be taking is a F350 dually king cab with the power stroke diesel. I'm anxious to drive this bad boy and see what she'll do. We actually have 2 of those and a F250 with a diesel, it is a SCAB and I'll be driving that one too, but I was told the F350 will be my main truck that I'll be taking out 2-3 weeks a month. Hope she does good since I'll be logging many miles on her.

some people get all the luck
make sure you check pressure in all tires, set to what it says on the door jamb sticker
too much air and it will be rough
I also found that adding about 500# to the bed smoothed out the ride

I just bought this one in June and I cant keep the wife out of it

Well I put 233 miles on her today and did some interstate driving, back roads and even went over a mountain or two. It did pretty good with the ride. I had 2 trailers in tow, one stacked ontop of the other for a weight of appx 3200 lb. I smoked the trailer tires once and I backed off the electric trailer brakes. The truck did lug pretty hard on the mountain with the tow, but coming home it did much better with acceleration and just riding in general.
Jsoko, Ty for the advice and for the heads up and Vin, I doubt I'll be able to bring her to ATN, but one never knows :)
