    Hey, tell me where you can get the f250 with supercab for $24K. I was about to pay $23,000/tax for the F250, standard 8' bed with the V8 gas, auto 4X4, tow package and A/C.

    What is MSRP on the truck? XL or XLT? Keep in mind I can get X Plan, which is near invoice, sometimes a little below, sometimes a little above. Here's an example of a truck here in town:

    I've been going by "invoice". Some guy's will sell it at invoice, others want $100/$200 over that. The good news is the F250's (superduty) have a $2,500 rebate.....

    Let me know what dealership has it, I will check to see if I can come up with X Plan on it (if its on the ford direct site) and that would be near invoice. Let me know all key info on it and it will make the search easier.

    BTW, here is a XL Regular cab:

    2003 F-250 SD Regular Cab 4X4 8' - XL



    Total Base MSRP: $24,355.00

    Radio:
    - Electronic AM/FM Stereo with Clock

    The dealer I'm dealing with is basically selling at invoice, plus the rebate. I guess that's like the X plan. I'll stay in touch. My biggest problem is finding what I want. I want green, with the big mirrors, tow package, cab steps, auto, v8 gas, A|C and FWD. I either can't find the color, or it doesn't have the big mirrors, or no cab steps.........:mad:

    Switchless

    If you have the air on full blast and the radio you can hardly hear the 7.3 :) and the diesel is alot better on fuel

    Radio.... it has a radio, too:p Seriously, I don't even go 7,000 miles a year, so the fuel won't kill me.......

    As far as the seatbelt chime is concerned when you start the truck press the seatbelt release button and the chime will stop.:angel:

    Pete,
    You did not mention if you are getting manual shift 4wd or ESOF (electronic shift on the fly), I will never own a ESOF again, many many problems !!!
    The brake controller wires into a harness you plug in under the dash, the harness is provided by Ford and should be in the glove box when you get the truck. There will also be a couple of relays to put in the fuse box.
    Other than that great ride I have a 2000 F250 PSD Super Cab with 126K on her now.
    If you can not find a truck with the trailer mirrors you can buy a set off Ebay or from many sources for around 200.00 or less

    Later

  10. Pete congrats on your new truck.
