Well I finally did it

Went out and got me a new 2012 F-350 Lariat. I ended up having the dealer swap out my 35" tires with the stockers. The 35's definetly fill out the wheel well better. A run down of the options:

Tuxedo black with black leather interior
6.7 diesel
3.55 electronic locking axle
Chrome package
FX4
Rapid heat
Block heater
Snow plow prep
Roof lights
Upfitter switches
Garage door opener
Lariat ultimate
Body side molding

I was very impressed with the ride quality, even with my old Cepeks on it, and the overall performance of the stock motor. Fuel mileage went up to 15.7 MPG on the way home which was 22 miles. I think I'm going to like this truck!

Future plans are a 2" lift and to put on the plow frame.

Should be none. I've seen stock 6.4s and 6.7s with 35"s with no issues rubbing

Thanks. I'm really liking the SYNC setup. My plans are to order either a leveling kit or a 2" lift for it, a coolant filter kit and I'm going to change over to ELC right away. Here is a little better picture of it.
