It's only money. I looked at my investments over the last 2 years and a bit and had I purchased a truck earlier I would have been in money.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

I call it the Veterans assist... It makes it a lot easier to get in and out espceially with the grab handle for pulling on to get into the box. Well worth the additional cost.

is there power folding/extending mirror option any more?

I know on super duties if you got them put selector in middle and move knob down and it should fold them if you have the power extending mirrors.

The donkey ears do not power-fold or extend, which is why I got the regular tow pkg., added the TBC, and got a pair of CIPA slip-on towing mirrors.

I highly recommend the factory TBC over an aftermarket one. It ties in with the dash display and works great. Its also a much cleaner look.

It sounds like the EcoBeast is a huge success for the RV pullers, but how are you guys doing for fuel mileage when empty. My buddy is a bit disappointed as he only gets about 18 on the highway and 14 around town. Anyone doing better?

I've gotten as high as 22.6 on the highway - but thats at 70 mph.
Definately not the 31 that Ford rates the vehicle at being able to obtain.
You must have to life near the test track and drive it to work on the track itself.
