I love mine. Went from a v10 gasser to the 6.7 diesel. What a difference. Does it have the fifth wheel prep (under bed rails?)

Yes it has the FW Prep. Hitch is being reinstalled next week free (after the manager told us it was going to cost $750. -- we almost walked!) so they will reinstall the hitch, rhino line it and do the resistol (I think that is the name) ..... We went from a Chevy 2500.... actually traded a 1500 & 2500 for it! Will be a bit challenging getting used to one vehicle again for a few months!

Excellent! While it may be challenging getting used to one vehicle, wait till you tow with it. The challenge will be well worth it! Not sure what the 2500 had for options, but I'm assuming you also have the power telescoping mirrors....so nice to have. Just took mine to pickup our fifth today to clean everything out of it in anticipation of our new one.

Now you are just going to have to get used to the "hips" Took me a little bit, but I haven't found too many places I have problems with. Only downfall is that I haven't found an automatic car wash I fit through yet.....just means I have to get off of my rear, get out of the truck, and use a manual (when I don't wash it at home that is.)

I did ask about that. But we have someone that comes to the house to wash the FW and we will just pay them to do the truck at the same time. Last time they were here they did both truck and ES and it was ~$80.00. My poor DH.... I am a bear when it comes to parking... he just kept shaking his head at me today... plenty of room he kept saying. Well we parked off to the side at Wal-Mart and when we came out we had 2 F150s on either side Guess they were our buffers!!!

Accelerate with caution so that you don't affect the rotation of the planet!! I heard one of these go by me in a parking lot this week; they are surprisingly quiet. Nice truck. Have fun. Be safe.

Congrats, we just got a 2012 at the end of December and have been loving it. Just got the recommended 1k miles on it so we can tow. Can't wait to see how easy it pulls our 5'er compared to our old F250.

Loving the mileage we have been getting and the power this thing seems to have.

Enjoy.
