Very nice!!

A local dealer has 2 brand new F350 CC, SB, XLT 4X4's both with 6.2L, one is priced at 36K and the other at 37K. If we weren't putting a $100K addition onto our house this year I would probably be getting a new truck...

I traded in a 07 Toyota Tundra which had a payload capacity of 1400 lbs. The new truck is rated at 2800 lbs.

The Ford is rated in the 12000 pound range and the Toyota was rated at 10000 towing, however my issues were always with payload capacity not trailer weight.

Although I loved that Toyota I couldn't get past the low payload capacity. I replaced the P metric tires with LT E rated tires, watched what I loaded in the truck and upgraded my weight distribution bars. In spite of all that the Toyota was maxed out with my 7100 lb TT. Although the Toyota pulled the trailer without issues, I was ALWAYS worried about the weight.

I look forward to hooking the TT up to the new truck and see how it feels.

Because the truck is a 2012 I got a great deal (I think). Sticker on the truck was 46000. With all the rebates, incentives and discounts I got the truck for 34000.

That's a great price!
It would be fun to drive that around Korea. I'd scare the #ģ?t out of the other drivers! LOL
Have fun and post pics when you have your trailer hooked up!
