The Redwood loads even this truck to the maximum – we are within 100 lbs of max load on rear axle. So, a new F350 dually or F450 is on the horizon in 2016 or 2017, when we return from the World Cruise.
March 2015 – New 2016 F350 dually ordered for delivery in December, when we return from the World Cruise.
August 2021 – New 2022 F-450 King Ranch ordered, with delivery hoped for early in the New Year. Actual delivery May 2022.
