Selling my 2005 F350 Crew Cab Lariat FX4 Dually, that I used to pull new campers from manufacturer to dealers, cross-country. No longer doing this, so I no longer need a truck this substantial.
The truck currently has about 349,600 miles on it, but I do still drive it occasionally, so that may increase.
Bed has fifth wheel rails, trailer wiring extension, and auxiliary 98 gal. TransferFlow fuel tank, with Trax II controller for it on the dash.
ISSPRO EGT and Trans. Temp. gauges in pillar pod.
In-dash Jensen VM9224 touch-screen DVD player.
Exhaust is aftermarket, 3.5" downpipe & cat delete, 4" cat-back exhaust w/ muffler & 5" tip
Tires are in good condition, 10-20k miles left.
At roughly 230k, I installed updated turbo drain and feed, updated pressure regulator, new oil cooler, Bulletproof updated EGR cooler. Has the updated STC fitting in HPOP.
At roughly 240k, I had new head gaskets and ARP head studs installed.
As you should be able to see from the pictures, my truck is not cosmetically perfect. There are a few dings, scratches, bumpers are banged up a bit, etc. Interior is in excellent, but not perfect, condition: the only real "bad" spot is the bottom of the passenger side front armrest, see pics. There are a few minor functional issues, such as the driver's side seat heater is not working. If you want the full list of maintenance & repairs done while I've had the truck, and all the minor issues that I know of, email me and I'll do my best to provide the information you need.
Truck runs and drives great, but does have an injector pecking at the moment. The only ill effect I've noticed is a bit more smoke on start-up, and the extra noise (which is not horrible). If buyer selects buy it now, I'll buy & replace the injector myself, if the buyer wishes. As it is, I would literally drive this truck anywhere, just check the oil, fill up the tanks, and go.
Any questions, please email me. If you want to talk to me on the phone about it, email with your number & a good time to call, or I can reply to your email with my number and availability.
Truck is for sale at a local car lot as well, so this listing may end early if it sells there. If you want to come see the truck, email me and I can give you specifics of where the car lot is located.
There is a bank payoff necessary before I can get the title; I generally need 24 hrs. (business days only) notice to have the title sent to the local branch. Because of this, payment must be a method my bank will accept, in order for them to release the title. This would include cash, cashier's check, possibly bank transfer. Let me know what method you would prefer, if other than cash, and I will verify if they will accept it.
If you wish to have me deliver the truck, I can drive it to your location. If you may be interested in this, email me and we can discuss specifics.

You know how people refer to someone as having "been around the block" to mean they're very experienced? Well, when it comes to automotive spy photography, Jim Dunne actually laid down the concrete slabs of the block's sidewalk. The unforgettable Dunne more or less invented the car spy game - a fact he cemented by writing book called Car Spy - and has been delivering spy shots and reporting on the industry for some 45 years now. (He also once employed this writer as his impromptu personal chauffer on a Volkswagen trip in Germany, while he slept, but that's a story for a different time.)

In any event, Dunne must be on a mission to prove that "elder statesman" doesn't also mean "washed up" as it is his shots of the upcoming new 2014 Ford Mustang that we've been handed by our friends at KGP Photography.
Mr. Dunne has likely spent the last few years obtaining powerful telescopic lenses, as the Ford in question has clearly been photographed from some distance. Nevertheless, what you see here is visual evidence that the sixth-generation Mustang has moved beyond the mule stage, and is now testing in proper prototype form. Sources indicate that there are production-spec body panels under that baggy canvass dress; but the slightly less bulky silhouette of the new car can be just made out. While the car's bumpers have been removed to obfuscate things, we can tell by way of the camo's apertures that the car's taillights have moved upwards and towards the lip of the tail. A fender vent appears to be visible, too, just behind the front wheel.
Is there a more iconic, American racecar than the Ford GT40? That may be a discussion for another day (although by all means, tell us how wrong we are in Comments), but this video of heaps of GT40s running in the Goodwood Revival races certainly has us thinking that Ford's Ferrari-killer might just be the best racer the Land Of The Free and Home Of The Brave has ever come up with.

That's completely ignoring the fact that the GT40 was largely developed by Brits using American money, but that's besides the point (there was also a rather brash Texan, who had a big role later in development). The resulting vehicle was dominant, besting the cars of Il Commendatore from 1966 to 1969, although it should be noted that Ford's GT40 was unable to beat Ferrari in its first two Le Mans outings in 1964 and 1965.
Those four years of dominance, which started with Ford sweeping the podium, were enough to establish the GT40's legend. And now, here we are almost 50 years later, celebrating the mid-engined monsters at Goodwood, in their first ever one-make race. Take a look below for the entire video.
There has been little news about Ford's China-focused Escort concept since debuting at last year's Shanghai Motor Show, but the no-frills sedan has shown its camouflaged face again during cold weather testing in Northern Sweden. While far from a guarantee, the test location might hint that the Blue Oval plans to market the car outside of Asia.
The Escort's black robe and zebra paint make it hard to tell if anything specific has changed about the design, but the shape of the sedan looks close to what was shown in Shanghai. Under the disguise, you can still make out the hexagonal front grille from the concept. When Ford announced the model, the company said that the design wasn't supposed to be "arrogant or pretentious," and it certainly achieved that. The engine range is still a mystery, but it seems safe to expect small, economy-focused powertrains.
A report from last year indicated that Ford may be considering broadening the new Escort beyond Asia and possibly even selling it in Europe. The fact that the company brought it to Sweden for testing could bolster that argument. A release date hasn't been set yet, but the automaker has promised 15 new products for China by 2015. The basic sedan could be on the road soon.
