I'm having the same problem in Tennessee trying to acquire the Under Bed Rail System thru Ford Accessories, eTrailer.com does not have 'em either. If you don't order it installed from the factory, about all we can do is cut out the 2 & 3/4 inch "puck" holes (4 ea) and wait for supply to catch up with demand.

Did your truck come with the in-bed 7 pin RV connector, if not do you intend to install one?

Just at the bumper location, the ford prep package (puck system) comes with it or is included when ford makes it available to the rest of us who didn't get a truck with it already. I'm screaming at everyone and complaining to ford, waiting to hear still but they said they have them for production trucks but not sending out to dealers. After seeing dodge, chevy and 2016 ford I still wouldn't have made another choice just wish I'd know and tried to find a 2017 with prep package installed. Good luck

I'm looking into the Andersen ultimate 5th wheel hitch and maybe don't want the ford prep anymore, the B&W under bed set up is not yet available either that I need to make the Andersen work so whoever has it first I guess.

regarding WDHs. I tow a 26RR toy hauler and used to tow a RWAGON 30RR(much heavier). A couple of years ago I replaced the WDH configuration with Firestone RideRite air assists and a typical friction type sway bar. I will never use a WDH again. Even with my Goldwing in the toy hauler, the trailer pulls better and smoother than it ever did with the WDH and it is a lot less hassle to hook up and drop off. The key is to get everything level from front to back.

Well, my 2012 F250 6.7 diesel crewcab 4x4 has been dragging around our 30' bumper-pull toyhauler since I bought it new in 2012. The trailers at about 10,000 lbs loaded with toys. My truck is ONLY spec'd at 400 HP and 800 lb torque but it's the same motor and drivetrain with minor changes compared to a 2017. 56,000 miles on the truck and other than the EGR valve being replaced by the dealer, it has been an outstanding truck.

It is a beast. It has never put me in a place where I thought I needed more power. Never.

I second the notion on getting the F350. I wish I did. But none were available in any color but black when I was buying.

I never understood why anyone would spend 50 grand or more for a big diesel and not get the 4x4. ?? Resale value alone will pay for the extra 3 grand for the 4x4.

My 2 cents.

2017 Ford F250

Just returned from a 5,000+ mile trip from Austin to New England and back. Towing my 2015 Wildcat 295 RSX 12,500lb. 5er. Could not ask for better performance. The 440 horse 6.7 never strained and never even downshifted from 6th in any of the mountains we traveled through. A far cry from my 2010 F250 that I upgraded from. Averaged 11.5 mpg for the full trip running 65mph highway most of the time. I did have to add 3.5 gallons of DEF on the trip which seems high to me, plan to consult the dealer on that.

I would like to think that using 3.5 gallons of DEF in 5000 miles is pretty good, any idea how many gallons of fuel you used?
