Thats a heck of a deal. Ford was out in force at a boat show I went to a couple weeks ago. Those trucks were stickered at $60k+.

Yep. My '08 Lariat was nice. I wasn't overly impressed with the leather, my wife even less so. But that dual zone auto climate control was just plain nice. Set it and forget it. I love my XLT now, and the premium cloth seats are just fine. I put in a Sirius module so I get Sirius satellite via the stock radio that has the Sync (that way I don't lose any of that). And I will put in the reverse sensors. Then I think I'll be pretty well set. But I'll still miss that dual zone auto climate control!

I've had my 2012 f350 Lariat 4X4 for two weeks now. Rides very nicely for a one ton, and the turning radius is very impresive. Haven't pulled the trailer yet but this truck seems to have much more power than my 2004 duramax diesel.

Check out some of the diesel forums. Maintenance is key to these trucks. Good luck with your new ride.

Wow, are you sure they knew what they were selling. I was totally waiting to here something near 60K.

My is a F-250 XLT4x4 with the FX4 package and it has the premium XLT package which gets you just about every upgrade you can get on an XLT. Capt chairs, LCD scren deal in the dash, all kinds us stuff. I paid $42,400 for it. Bought it in Weatherford TX (right outside Ft Worth) They had $13,000 off MSRP. I'll post a pic in a minute.

We picked up a 2012 this weekend - F350 SRW CC 4x4 Lariat and could only get about 10k off the sticker. However, the dealer was generous on my trade - well above Kelly BB excellent value. Maintenance is key. It seems like geographic location can influence price.

QFT...

What dealer was it? $28k is certainly worth the drive out from CA..

Heck, I could turn that into a 6 month unpaid vacation and still come out ahead!
