My new truck...

2006 F-250, 5.4 auto, XLT. Just picked it up on thursday. Of course, I put it to work right away friday morning. It pulls my trailer MUCH better than my old truck! And the rear suspension isn't nearly on the bumpstops like the other truck was.

Do you have the towcommand in that truck? When the lease is up next year on my 06 F-150 I'mm gonna get a 250 Superduty, the 150 does almost everything I need it to but twing my tractor around more and more is getting old with the bumperpull and the gooseneck I'm wanting I think will overload the truck too much by the time I get the tractor and bushhog on it.

I have the tow command in my new 06. I like it very much no drilling holes attaching anything. It works more sensitive than any box i had in my other trucks. It has a readout like 5.5 and you can adjust by pushing a + or - button 1/2 at a time. I also have a wiring problem with 1 of my trailers and it will tell me pulling out ( trailer at fault ) and ding.

I love that truck. Looks great. Seems like this was the week everyone is buying Fords! The one thing that I wish I had is tow command.

I like it! But an XLT? You must not sweat much J/k, but get some seat covers before you ruin the cloth.

I guess it's pretty nosey to ask, but how much did you manage to get knocked off sticker? I'd be all over a new one if I hadn't purchased mine a couple of years ago. Hard to look at the 0% for 72 months and just keep telling yourself you don't need a new truck

Sticker was 34,5xx. I think I could have gotten more off if it hadn't been for the 0% for 72. I think that gives them less room to move on the price. Ford has to get their money somehow.

And yes I'm getting some seat covers this weekend.

Getting about $4k off with 0% is pretty good in my book. You are effectively seeing about an $80 savings every month paying no interest. As long as you plan to keep a truck for a long time that's better than rebates.
