Everything is mine when it needs washing, waxing, fixing or driving long distances. Once we are there and everything is shiny and working well, they're all hers. Mama's not always right but she's never wrong.

Thanks. How's your Ford been holding out for you? Gas or Diesel? I've read all the horror stories about the 6.0 but so far mine has been almost trouble free (HPOP replaced in 2010)...along with wearable items such as brakes, batteries, etc.

It is the 6.0 diesel also. Had to replace the oil cooler last year. Fortunately, this was replaced under dealership warranty. Am really happy with how well it handles the 5er.

Thanks guys. Now off to find a hitch. In the mean time I need to get an adapter for the 2.5" receiver so that I can still pull my TT.

My 250 had the adapter in the receiver when I bought it. I remember all the super duty trucks having it in there. Was it new or used? If new I would swing by the dealership and get one. If used, I would try the same thing first.

Bought it used with 20K on it. I don't think this truck has ever towed. It has the factory 5th wheel and GN prep and all three hitch points still have the factory paint on them.

SAD, I can't see my sig pic on my work computer. I think I resized it last night. Someone let me know if it isn't.

Check with your dealer - our truck came with the adapter behind the rear seat with the jack tools
