Posted 19 April 2017 - 10:06 AM

Hey all!  I took a brief hiatus from the site for a while (my daughter and I made an agreement...she gave up Pinterest and I gave up 'my Ford site' for Lent), but now I'm back and trying to catch up.  While I was gone, I took delivery of my 2017 F350 Lariat with the 6.7L PowerStroke.  Wow, is this truck amazing!!  There is absolutely no comparison to the '08 F250 that I had before this truck.  

 

I ordered the truck on 1/31, and it showed up at the dealer on 3/20 after sitting at the rail yard 100 miles away for almost 2 weeks.  Funny story, my salesman text me a pic of the truck saying it was in.  My wife happened to be near the dealership taking my daughter to the dentist, so she stopped by to see it.  It was unlocked, so she sent me a pic of her in the truck.  I sent that to my salesman and freaked him out a bit...he thought I photoshopped it! :)  I picked it up on 3/21 and now have 1100 miles on it, ready for the first camping trip of the season this weekend.  I can't wait to see how it tows compared to my 6.4L.

 

A few pics are below.

Nice, but that's a really strange looking Ferrari.   I bet it won't do more than 30 in the corners.....

Well, attaching a fifth wheel hitch to the Ferrari voided the warranty so I had to settle.

Looks like the 6 3/4 bed.

You need some floor liners, dude.

They've been added. :) Those pics (except the one where it is clean) were taken before the dealer PDI'd it.  Pretty crazy how filthy they get it in only 7 miles. :(

 

Since the pics I've added floor liners, bug shield, tonneau, spray-in bedliner, fifth wheel hitch, and Tufskinz letters in the tailgate and bug shield.  I hope to get some time to wash and wax it and get some good pics soon.

Pics of the Tufskinz letters please.

 

Liquid chrome on the bug shield and caribou (to match the lower two tone) on the tail gate.  The caribou doesn't stick out on the tail gate like I thought it would so it's pretty subtle.

Fordman-as the kids would say ..."awesome".  Bring it on up -the 4720 needs a ride to the Fairgrounds and the son's 5.4 is getting a little tired pulling that weight!
