Truck finally was delivered a day or 2 ago. Salesman took photos. Looks like I'll be picking it up early as I lucked out and got a 2k PCO randomly playing on Fords website. My wife's picking it up on Saturday and it'll basically sit in the driveway until I'm done with deployment. I've seen a lot of posts about the things you guys didn't like and the fixes for those things. I asked the dealer to lower tires to 55PSI and adjust the TPMS and salesman said yeah no problem. Looking at sumo springs for the front and possibly a leveling kit to get rid of some of that rake. Aside from those 2 things and maybe some letter inserts seems like a perfect truck! Can't wait to finally drive it. Lariat with value package, nav, console safe, Ford spray in bed liner and upfitter switches in Star White.

Awesome truck! I like the stance as is. Congrats!
I don't want it completely level, I have a camper that's 7500 dry so with camping gear and such I don't want it to end up nose up but i'd like to get a little less rake. I think the sumo springs will do enough. Looks like about a 3/4" to 1" bump in height in the front. I think that'll do it for me, plus the reviews are they greatly improve the ride. If I still don't like the way it sits then I'll look at a leveling kit. Long term my plan is 4.5" carli pintop with all the goodies, methods and 40's

Wife is picking up the truck and says it's getting a ton of attention. Lots of customers looking at it and inside it. She says it's the nicest truck she's ever seen, and it's so pretty and tall. Can't wait to hear what she thinks of how it drives.

There's a picture of my daughter standing in front of it. She absolutely loves it. She says it's her chariot lol. I had told my wife be careful on the pedal when you're pulling out of the dealership b/c it's 1050 lb/ft of torque....much different than your hybrid. She gave me her normal stubborn ass "I've driven trucks before David". I said ok, not like this. After she got home she says oh shit you weren't kidding about the power. She also said it's extremely bumpy on the rd and you feel everything. I'm hoping the sumo springs in the front and some dual steering stabilizers make that not such a harsh ride. She's also used to driving cars and SUV's and I'm used to driving sports cars with hard suspensions already and trucks. I'm sure our opinions are very different on what harsh is. The truck is home now though, next step is to start ordering parts.
