Just got my new 2012 F-450 Lariat.
WOW! Just a really nice truck IMO. My other truck is a 2006 F-350 Lariat SRW but it will only tow 12,500lbs.
The new 5er we bought is a Crusader 355BHQ and wet comes in about 14,000lbs, so I was looking for a safer vehicle for my family and I, so as not to have any worries out on the trail. We also have a short (10') toy trailer on the rear of all that so I was very concerned as to how my SRW would do. So I just decided that there was no way I needed to even try to tow with the 350 and went with the F-450.
Being that I am in Denver and head west most every time we go camping I feel this should be our safest TV we could own within reason and the F-350 DRW's were just about the same price as well.
This truck has almost all the bells and whistles and is REALLY nice, no it does not make coffee but sure seems like it should.
Not sure what else to say at this point as I am still just looking it over and being dumbfounded by all the gizzy's it has over my once new 2006 F-350.
