Was "lurking" on the forum for a while soaking up all the good information that is shared. Got my X-Plan PIN through the Ford stock ownership route, pulled the trigger and ordered my 7.3 F350 last week. Now the long wait begins. I'm coming from a 16 year old F150 XLT I have had since new so this will be a bit of an upgrade. Like many I really struggled with the Godzilla vs PSD question and I get why many choose the PSD. It was not a $$$ question for me so much as looking at what I wanted over the long haul and the 7.3 was a better fit. At this point I have received the confirmation email you get from Ford acknowledging my order, I'll update this thread as the process moves forward so others can benefit from hearing about the wait times, etc.. For now I spend my time surfing the web looking at all the ways I can customize this new toy. ;)

Gives us the details!!

Also, no need to justify 7.3 over the Powerstroke! Do what fits your needs
Agreed - I appreciate the relative simplicity of the 7.3. Watching/reading the comparison videos/posts I'm comfortable I made the right choice. Looking forward to seeing it in my driveway!

Just wanted to give you a heads up that the Winch will not be installed at the factory. It will show up in a box with the truck and installed by the dealership. I didn't realize this therefore thought I would tell you.
I heard about that, sounds like you need to QC the install, hopefully they know what they are doing.
