So heres a little story. The recovery was simple, it was just my error of using the truck.
The first heavy snowfall since I had gotten my F350 I managed to get it stuck across from my apartment. With my old Dakota, I didnt need to be moving to switch on 4x4. Tried that with the ol F350 and said...
With more than just the 6.0 available, I would not go that route.
As others have said, forget the lifts. 350 is plenty tall enough and if you get a CCLB like me, trails and parking get limited. I wouldnt have it any other way, though.
I have a handful of different leathermans. comes in handy at my job. Fixes easy stuff without getting out the whole toolbox. Usually pliers or screwdriver is sufficient enough.
Surge is my favorite though. heavy duty and so many uses.
I gotta say, I am quite impressed by some of the 1/2 ton truck builds. They definitely work with what they have.
I just like my F350 so I dont have too many restrictions and plenty of space (8ft bed) to work with.
