"Anniversary To Us"

Postby dpalmer » Fri May 29, 2015 2:43 pm

Karen and I will be celebrating our 50th anniversary this August and were discussing on what to do. She was driving by the Ford dealership and came home and said "I just saw our truck" :d So we went just to look :wink: and decided that it would be a great Golden Anniversary present :d Well we went Platinum and bought a 2015 Platinum F350, DRW, 4X4, 6.7 Power Stroke. Now I get to learn about Diesel 8)

Congratulations on the new Ford! Looks just like mine except you are missing the "Deer" guard on the front. I think you'll find that it will be a VERY nice puller for your Bird. My 2012 does real well and I understand they upped the horsepower, torque, and brakes on the 2015. All the electronic "bells and whistles" will keep you busy for a while learning what all they can do.

Congrats on 50 years!

Nice looking set up and I am pretty sure you will enjoy the diesel when towing the trailer. The learning process will be in parking the pickup in a parking lot!

It has been a challenge in the parking lots. I need to widen the door on my pole barn to get it in. Haven't towed yet, just hooked up in the drive to check the fit. We will take it for a tow test next week :thumbrt: Mike I like the training wheels =))

Very nice set up and congratulations on the 50 years. If you want to see 51 you will still need to get her something. =))

Beautiful truck Dave and Karen. Congrats on 50. That is special! Very few can claim that. :ymhug: Our 38th was two days ago. I didn't get a new truck. :cry: I am getting new axles, wheels, tires and suspension for the bird; PLUS a lot of work to install it all. :bounce: Gonna be nice. And my loving wife never asked "Why?" She sees the need, and loves to travel safely.
