Uh, I went and done it now!

I fell prey to dealer advertising. Well, and I ended up talking them down to a deal I could live with also. Anyway, I ended up with a brand new 2011 F-250, with the new 6.7L diesel. I gave up a few amenities I had in the Lariat, but I got most of what I wanted still. And I can add what I want, except for the Dual Zone Climate Control. I'm gonna miss that. Anyway, here's a few pictures of the new toy.

WOW! Congratulations! We are so jealous!
Over the summer we almost got a new F-350 (even in the same color as you & crew cab)...but we decided to wait a little while longer and invest 3K in my husband's "baby" (a 2001 F-350 4x4 7.3L PwrStrk Diesel-Modified). We have teen boys just starting to drive and figured it would be great starter truck for them to keep. Hubby would never settle for anything in between his beloved 7.3 and this new (supposedly fabulous) 6.7L. We hear GREAT things about them! We have a friend who is highly sought after Ford Diesel mechanic. He loves this new one and steered my husband away from all those "in-between" models that had terrible "glitches". Because of our friendship... 3K went a long way and ours is ALL new under the hood (incl. new oil pan - Pain in the Butt). By the time we do get our new F-350...they will have worked out even more kinks...but OUR day WILL come! Enjoy YOUR day!
