After 4 years of trusty service from my 2012 Eccobeast it was time to make the move into the next truck. Brought this beast home yesterday to meet the family.

2016 F350 XLT, with XTR plus. Has fifth wheel prep package amongst all sorts of other goodies. Can't wait to haul the 295RST with this creature. .

Looks just like mine, except mine is black. So glad I got the XTR XLT and not the fancy schmancy lariat. This is plenty of luxury for me. We are just about to hit the return leg of our first trip in it. Wow wow wow. I have zero regrets. I came from an 07 F150 5.4L. I like the power going up hills and am amazed by the engine braking going back down the hills.

Do you have the buckets and full center console?

Flow through centre console. That is the only option for me in a truck. I LOVE the storage in the centre console.

All my trucks have been XLT. I cannot handle leather in a truck. A complete nonstarter for me. Add to that the significant cost jump in the Lariat the XLT is my sweet spot.

The ride is definitely way stiffer than the F150 but nothing I cannot deal with.

This is my first center console true and I love it.
So many people question why I got an XLT and not a lariat. Have even heard people ask "why didn't you get a lariat, something you would actually like to drive ". Well I like driving this!

Leather seats, a complete nonstarter for me. Cannot stand leather seats. Not much else in the Lariat package that interests me.
