2011 Dually...ummm....

Ok, so...the front end? Not that big of a fan, but can appreciate it. However...the dually looks like a joke. And the F450 is now an F350 with an upsized rotor option. No real reason to get it. Oh, and I expect the aftermarket to have a banner year selling 19.5 and up wheels to everyone. That F450 on 17's looks ridiculous...to me. Thanks to Ford not offering a manual transmission I have no need to convince myself not to buy a new truck. Will be keeping my 08 F450 for a while!

Atleast someone else agrees with me that the wheel/tire set up is way too small for the "big look" they went for on the rest of the truck.

What about those fender flares? I seen them here at the Texas State Fair and was not too impressed.

I think they are hideous...I saw the video on the Ford Website and thought that the fenders looked like that because they were "camoflage" to not give away what the truck was REALLy going to look like. I can't believe that's what it really does look like.

rear flares remind me of a dodge

Personally, I like it.
I agree, the 19.5 wheels looked great on the 450, and yeah, there is no aesthetic reason to like the F-450 anymore, but I think the DRW in general looks better now and it's a better rig.
The front wheel flares match the rear flares perfectly, and the truck looks much more sleek and modern IMHO. Gone is 600lbs of turning weight to get started and to stop. The current F-450 is a fuel hog, and I am sure the fuel numbers were something Ford wanted to part with.

pictures vs real life are sometimes two different things, the rear fender flares look "bloated" in the last picture.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.
