Those numbers are pretty amazing. And, I read from owners that the tow experience is a good one. Too bad its not in an Expedition. Can't fit my family in a pickup anymore.

Does anyone know if Ford is using the new SAE standard J2807?

X3 on going with the 18" tires. You have more sidewall height that is better for impact absorption. You also have many more tire choices. I ordered mine with the LT tires; they feel firmer and probably a bit harsher than my buddies truck that has 17" P-metric Michelin ATs.

Acadian Bob, My dealer said I wouldn't be satisfied with the 20s, especially because I live on gravel roads. I originally was going to do like you and get 18s with the 10 ply tires. Probably would've been better. I have used that kind of setup for years and its good. Just thought I would try something different.

I have a question for you though and tell me if I need to make a new thread here. I was wondering how you like the reese dual cam setup? My trailer weighs 6700 dry, probably close to 8g loaded and is 33 ft from tongue to bumper. I need something stable. Thanks

Added note:

I test drove an F-150 King Ranch without the Nav system, then one with Nav, and I discovered that the tiny backup camera screen on the mirrow was almost useless in broad daylight when you tend to get glare on the mirror. I couldn't see very well at all, and resorted to the traditional method of backing up. The Nav screen on the second truck was much more usable in sunny conditions.

I ended up ordering the Nav system, only because I got a few extra incentives due to my company's fleet purchase pricing. Now just the waiting...

I'm getting ready to order my FX2 and I am going with the NAV. With some of the savings plans Ford has going on now with some of packages it's cheaper than $2300. I have a 2010 Ford Taurus with NAV and I love it and it is the same in the F150. It's also a hard drive for your music and the back up camera is really nice.
