Change of plans. After posting this last night I was surfing the net and found an identically equipped truck, same color, discounted $12.500 in Houston. A much better deal than I was getting in Austin. So currently I'm sitting with my DW in the Mack Haik Ford showroom watching "Ellen", while they prep the truck and fill her up. Can't wait to get behind the wheel! Thanks for all the comments!

Woo Hoo! Welcome to Houston. I see a lot of Mac Haik trucks around here, that's for sure. I think mine may have come from his dealership, but I'm not sure. It was transferred to my dealer, and he wouldn't tell me the dealer name. Was afraid I might jump ship and go there.

Anyway, congrats, and enjoy it! Let us know when you get home if that "perma-grin" is still on your face!

Hey Perma-grin,
I do envy you, everything I hear 'bout that 6.7 is positive. Thinking 'bout trading my '10 6.4 for a new one. Keep us posted as to how thin new grin inducer meets expectations.

Travel safe

You should have bought them both.

I just pulled in from Houston and the drive home was incredible. I could have gone for another 300 miles but the DW had a problem with that. The new truck has a very good ride and they managed to smooth out that bouncing in the back end which occurred when unloaded. The handling was very responsive with much less roll in the curves at highway speed. The creature comforts remained similar to my 2009 except for the addition of air conditioned front seats. Now that's a feature I can really use in the blazing heat of South Texas.. The truck averaged 18. 2 MPG per my phone calculator and that beats the heck out of the 13.1 mpg I got with my 6.4 on the way up to Houston. The acceleration has been improved on as well. I also applaud Ford for bringing back the overhead sunglass compartment-it was greatly missed. Overall I'm extremely happy with my purchase and look forward to many years of "perma grins"
