wish you bought a long bed if you ever plan on towing a 5th wheel. BUT, I will say, my long bed is a pain in a parking lot.
Thanks everybody for the compliments. I've seen so many others post their new trucks and looked on just wishing...so I finally got my turn.
I tried for the long bed but the wife would not go for it. I'm just happy I was at least able to get a new truck by her! Gotta take the small victories. I do pull a 5th wheel and i did a quick test run a few days ago. No clearance issues with the 5th wheel but I did not expect any as there were none with the F250. At times, I do miss the clanging of the 6.0 and the 4" straight pipes. It sounded like a big block when accelerating with my boat or fifth wheel. This one is SOOOO quiet, and the wife likes that. (quiet for now, until it is out of warranty)
