    F250 still have their place. I'd buy a 6.2 gasser to get a long bed extended or crew cab and a solid front axle.

    Don't need the extra of the 350.

    It would cost me a fortune! I drive 25,000+ miles/40,000km+ plus a year. I use it like a truck and work it. So I would have to pay bigtime upon return.

    Not true. I dont lease, but leasing is good for those that want a new truck every two or three years, or those that can take advantage of annual tax incentives.

    Its no secret that in the long run...
