If you don't mind me asking how much you paid? My in-laws are seriously thinking about upgrading to a diesel from a gasser. They have a 08 F-150 60th Anniversary and don't feel safe trying to tow a 5W.

Oh, you are going to love that truck. It pulls like a dream. I'm not one to believe much in the saying "night and day difference", but this is about as close as it comes. My truck pulls way better than my 6.4L that I traded. It really does great.

Ron...After the wheeling and dealing, I got my XLT (with quite a few upgrades) for around $42,000. The only things I really miss are the dual zone automatic climate control, and the backup sensors. I can add the backup sensors, but I'm going to have to do without the dual zone climate control.

Congratulations on the new truck. You've got 2 weeks to break it in prior to towing. I believe that Ford recommends a minimum of 500 miles prior to towing.

Ed, I hear what you're saying. I've got all the bells and whistles on our Lariat...it'strange how those options you've never had before now become requirements.

Dave

Thanks, I'll pass that along to my in-laws. Congrats on the new truck by the way and good luck with and happy camping.
