In the midst of researching the perfect 4wd tow vehicle so I can beach-launch worry-free. Aiming for a white 2500HD, but who knows what I'll wind up with.

I have a white 7.3  F250 4x4, 4 door. I would not trade it for anything. 

My wife is shopping a new ride.

that's what I want is a F250 or F350 with a 7.3 although I know that means no "new" truck but you can find ones out there with under 50,000 miles on them.

A duramax / allison is a great combo. I have had 2 chevy 7.4 duallys. Enjoyed them both.

I looked for about 6 months before I found mine about 5 years ago. I saw countless beat up work trucks. Got lucky and found a clean fleet one.

What about this guy?

Being shy Capt!!  Congrats

Hey guys, yep...got a F-150 Eco Boost. Finally found a Max Tow with the 3.73 rear and upgraded suspension.

It's red to match the Sunsation and has a silver stripe on the bottom.

I'll get some pictures up after work! So far I like it a lot. Hopefully Bob can get my Sunny back together before we run out of water.

Oh yeah, for sure. Being as I use Highland Lakes, even before the sign went up I would have said that's a requirement. Got an electronic locking rear diff too.
