I'm going to be doing a pretty good job of that myself. I think my wife is scared she is going to have to work the rest of her life!

I have already built it online. It's a 2017 F350 King Ranch. Went on the site this morning and requested my PIN number for the "A" plan discount.

Here is a couple of pics from the site of exactly what I built. At least what it will look like. It will be factory prepped for a 5th wheel/ gooseneck. The heaviest tow/haul package. Duel heavy duty alternators, duel batteries. Basically set up for pulling a 5th wheel RV in comfort.

6.7 Power Stroke diesel. 440 HP and 925 Tq.

Re: New truck

This is a truck, and available for less than many a Super Duty ...
you likely will need to rebuild your garage.

Re: New truck

That's a beauty, Larry........and a beast. The anticipation's got to be killing you. It would be killing me, lol.

.....just call me Ellis

I was abandoned as an infant and raised by a family of opposums........does that explain things?

They say you catch more flies with honey than vinegar, but I've always had my best success with a dead squirrel

Want to see what happens when you join parts from about 6 GT's, farm tractors, walkbehinds, ship parts, push mowers, trailers, scrap air compressors, CNC lathes, junk refrigerators, tread mills and more? If so, check out me and Mike's most excellent Gravely Custom Build and Adventure Thread

Re: New truck

You'll love that 6.7. We just got a new one at work, 6.7 and a 6 speed auto. It's a 1 ton with a dump. What a dream to drive. Lot's of grunt when you want it and cruise along at 60-65 without breaking a sweat, even loaded. Hit a hill and the turbo boost goes up and you don't come out of overdrive unless it's a very long hill.

I never was much of a Ford man but this one has me thinkin'!

Re: New truck

Agreed 6.7 is nice. You've been looking in to one of these for quite some time, right? Let us know when you pull the trigger! I do like that color.

My buddy ordered his 2017 F350 back in early March. They said it would be built like April 7 or something like that, and he'd have it the 14th. He picked it up from the dealer April 11. Seems they underpromised and overdelivered. His wife and my wife took it on a short ride; she said is nice!


Overkill.
I love overkill.

Re: New truck

Congrats on moving forward with the new truck, Larry, it sure is a nice looking rig!

I spec'd a new 17' Chevy Colorado, 4x4, crew cab with Diesel power a few weeks ago, sure would be nice to drop by the local dealer and order it.

You got that right. Thursday we are going down to pull the trigger, then the wait.

I test drove a Lariat F350 6.7 and fell in love with it. It limits the torque till 4th gear then it will lay you back in the seat.

I can get a better deal taking a 2016 off the lot but the 17's are just about all new. Too many upgrades to pass up.

Yes, I've been looking and researching and decided to go with it. By the time I option a Lariat with what I want it gets into King Ranch territory because so much comes standard on them. It's a little nicer truck all around also. I want a truck that will do the work but I want it comfortable also if we are going to be spending some time in it.

Went tonight to place the order and the salesman couldn't select the tire/wheel combination and gear ratio I wanted. He' wants me to come back in the morning. He thinks Ford's computers were not working right.
When I got home I went on Ford's site and figured out what he did wrong. I couldn't get it to configure it the way I wanted till I selected 4x4 then it would let me select any combination I wanted.
