Hey All,

Just joined the forum after finding lots of good info here over the past week. Two weeks ago I ordered a 2021 F350 Lariat Ultimate Tremor 7.3 in Rapid Red (non sport!) after selling my 2018 F250 Lariat Ultimate 6.7 for only 7k less than I paid for it 22k miles ago. The used truck market is crazy! Very handy for me as I was just at the point of needing new tires and pricing out Tremor-like upgrades. I tow 7-10k regularly (about half of the miles on my '18 we're towing), which the 7.3 should own easily and I'll have lots more fun in the dirt than the old FX4 on 20s wanted to do.

I'll be putting the factory winch and limited slip to the test right away driving through our snowy field, seeing how high in the mountains I can get before they close the forest roads for grooming, and then snowmobiling after that (if any dealers get sleds this year!).

Anxious to see how well the LSD pulls...there was one video on here that showed it not doing so hot slowly pulling out of a muddy ditch, but I'll be sure to give it plenty of the 7.3's hp when doing my tests 😁

See you around,
Andy

Thanks all!

Dealer initially said 12wks then changed 8wks, but after 2 weeks I called and still no VIN, but I'm not sure what that means 🤷‍♂️

Since I sold my previous truck already this 8-12 weeks gives me a good chance to see how many things I actually need it for!

Welcome and totally agree with you on the 7.3 If I did not use mine for heavy skid loader and 5th wheel I would have for certain got the 7.3
Very cool you got "paid" on the old truck basically made money really.
