    Picked up the newest addition to our fleet today.
    Ford F-250
    5.4L V8

    I put about 50 miles on it today and I love this truck. Rides way way smoother then my 2000 F-250 5.4L. I will keep this thread updated as I get it ready for mowing and snow this winter. I have worked up what I think will be a kick a** Lettering and decal layout and can't wait to get it done next week. Any suggestions (within reason)? LET THE CUSTOMIZATION BEGIN!

    did you get it on the a-plan? what was the total cost? why not a f-350? very nice truck though thats just what im looking for so thats why i ask so many ? i really like the vinyl over the cloth, it looks as nice as leather.

    No prob on the questions. I get A-plan Normally so it gets confusing but basically I got it for 26,000 and right now with the A-plan for everyone you could get it for 28,000. I wanted the vinyl and a f350 but the dealer had a real hard time finding me a white super cab f350 with vinyl that was not a diesel. I almost waited a month for a f350 quad cab long bed XL with power windows V10 and vinyl but didn't want to pay the extra 4,000 for it.

    My dealer told me that it is because everyone wants the V10. The 6.0's scared allot of people and now they want to see how the 6.4 turns out first. The dealer in the next town over had white diesels in about any configuration I wanted, No joke they had like 8
