The truck arrived...finally!!!

Got the call from my dealer tonight...my 2008 F250 FX4 finally arrived! They are doing the prepping tonight on everything and will have ready for me tomorrow morning. I can't wait!! The aftermarket shop is taking it Monday for all the mods. It's going to be a good week!

Now I know what everyone has been saying....this thing is just a blast to drive. And everywhere I go, folks want to look at it. Took my kid to his football game today, and had a small crowd gather to take a look while at the field. Then I had about 4-5 people come up to look at it when I stopped off at a couple more places (including a Chevy guy who said he wouldn't trade his beloved Chevy but he loved the way mine looked). I have to admit the two-tone white over dark shadow gray is very striking, but the black leather with white stitching and two tone FX4 interior is killer.

Big kudos to my dealer too; they "arranged" for me to keep last month's incentives of $3000 cash back (they were letting me wait a day since it was the first of the month in case the incentives got better; they didn't as the incentives dropped to $2500 so I kept the higher one), and the prep guy spent the whole day yesterday doing the dealer undercoating, fabric protection, leather conditioning, waxing, etc. He even did the driveline. The whole truck just "shines"! I got the supposedly $800 dealer prep package for free, so I tipped the guy very nicely for his great job.

Anyway, I love this beast. I spent most of the day driving around and put about 100 miles on it before I got home (dealer is 8 miles away...lol). I get one more day to play before I hand it back to the dealer for all my mod installs. I have to tip my dealer accessory guy too as I got wholesale pricing on my mods with no dealer markup and full coverage under the dealer warranty. Hope to have pics of the finished truck by end of the week. Thanks everyone!

Congrats on the truck Dawg. I'm also looking forward to take delivery of mine which dealer said to be the 2nd or 3rd week of this month. Can't wait!
