I have the cash value policy with Allstate. I got to choose the amount too though and that amount won't go down with depreciation as it will with the GS policy.

We had the Good Sam's policy when we first bought the Fusion. Last year I shopped it to my auto insurer (Allstate) and saved about 1/3 of the cost. Shop around.

I don't know what brand mine are but I've always used the stainless steel ones on all my trucks. I just believe they're more durable than plastic.

I completely understand! Going from my old 97 7.3 to the 2011 6.7 was such a difference. The newer truck handles the 17,000 lbs. much better and the power is effortless in comparison. I towed the...

I moved up from a 97 F350 7.3 Turbo diesel. I really liked that truck but I knew the transmission would be the weak link when I moved up to a bigger RV. It did well with the Gulfstream Sedona but it...

You'll love it. These things pull like a train! What did you have before? As for the tool box, I don't think you'll have any trouble. I have a similar one and with the long bed there's no issue....
