My new Tow Vehicle....went slightly bigger

I really didnt need to get something this big, but i was shopping for a new truck and figured why not. I love this truck!

Anyone with a 2011-14 on the fense about trading up to a 2016, dont be! It has sooo many improvements over the 2011 its almost funny. The ride, power, comfort, tech features, auto up and down windows (fianlly), hill start brake, and a so many more.

Im very happy with my new truck. Its a 2016 F450 Platinum.

Wow, congrats! (And, like my Tundra, doesn't look like she'll fit in the garage!!)

Wow...nice. If you're gonna jump, might as well jump high. That's a nice truck there. Enjoy it, and keep us informed on how well it does for you.
