Picked up my new truck yesterday and WOW

Picked up my truck yesterday and have been busy driving it. What a great truck. The ride is very smooth, but still feels sharp and crisp as one would expect from a F350. The engine is quiet, real quiet from inside the cab and comfortably quiet even when standing right next to it. It has great power and acceleration, and the turbo lag is barely perceptable. I have just over 100 miles on it now and the lie-o-meter tells me I am getting 14.4 mpg. I will hand calculate that when I fill it myself and run a tank through it. That way I will know it was filled the same both times. Today I am having my B W Turnover Ball hitch installed for the gooseneck horse trailer and then Wednesday the Alpine DVD/Nav goes in along with the hard wired iPod, Sirius Radio and Bluetooth for the phone. Wednesday is also the day for the Viper 2 Way remote start. Hoping to get Linex scheduled for the end of the week. I will try to get some pictures shot, loaded and posted by the weekend.

2008 F350 SB CC 4x4 KR, 20" wheels, and the works!
