Your brakes are much much larger and the suspension id much better as well as the rear truck rear end.

Good luck and I'm sure you will enjoy the ride.
What truck hitch do you have? The one that mounts to the holes in the Ford Bed? or an air ride hitch

I just notice you even have the indash Navagtion System... WOW!
I did not get the Cequent underbed mount, but will put Cequent rails in after I get a bed liner sprayed this week. I have rails in the 06 350 so I will use my Reese 16k until my 20k comes in about 3 weeks.

I did not like them in pictures either but don't mind them now. I really do not like the "REALLY BIG" ones on the other 2 brands of trucks either. Too much plastic to get pegged by a rock and have a nice hole in it, but that is JMO.


Thanks for the comments guys!!

I will bite. Horrible look on Fords part. The dash looks miter cut (like a carpenter built it) and the DRW fenders are round. Nice interior electronic features, but horrible cosmetic look for me.
Good luck with it.

That dash has been around since 2008 and it really looks good in my opinion. The fenders are another story. Reminds me of the DRW Dodges and I was never sold on them either.

Nice truck, but the fenders sure leave a lot to be desired. Looks like they forgot about them and found a set from an old 50's Chevy. Would sure try to find some molded ones that are streamlined into the rest of the bed. Make a nice truck into a beautiful rig.

Just saw a new Dodge Ram 3500 DRW next to me at a stop light. The Ram rear fenders look like Playschool plastic add ons. CHEAP. But hey, they are inexpensive to replace and you know dang well people crack em up sooner vs. later.

Congratulations on the new ride. You're gonna love it for sure. That new 6.7L is a dream to drive, and a dream to tow with.

Sweet ride. I've got the '11 and I love it. The engine is phenomenal and the creature comforts (like that coffee maker) ain't half bad either!
