Yeah...it's a beast!

Ordered in March and delivered today.
Lariat Interior, Chrome, Rapid Heat, cab lights, 5th wheel prep, Off Road, 20" wheels, upfitters, 3.55 ELD, accent paint. I ordered it the way I wanted it and can't be happier. Just wanna drive it...

In hills where my Tundra downshifted 2 gears, this beast just lugs up them in 6th.

And boy howdy....hit it and git it! Whoa.

Ford made one heck of a vehicle!

Those are good looking trucks. I like the design of that motor a lot too. Ford is doing something right.

Put a little over 200 miles on today -
~60 miles interstate at 70mph.
Balance was a mix of 60mph roads with some stop and go, and then sitting in traffic.
18.4 on the readout until I hit the stopped traffic for 20 minutes. Dropped me in the upper teens. Of course, will need to verify with hand calc....but pretty stoked nonetheless!
Drives straight as an arrow. Power when I want it. It's amazing how quickly you can hit the speed limiter.....shows up too fast.

Thanks. It's exactly what I wanted. I just love driving it.
I am pleased with my tonneau fit.
Looking to install Linex.
Want to put mud flaps on, but want to see pics of trucks with 20" wheels with flaps. The rear tires are close where I think a flap would hang.
Likely install a bug deflector and side windows deflectors. Anyone have recommendations and pics?
Thanks.

Nice truck 95Stroker!
I hear ya on the way these make you feel. I can't believe how smooth this truck is for a HD truck.
Today, I bought some high gloss tractor supply paint and painted as much of the frame as I could. It's one of those things I've done to vehicles that really makes the frames and welds hold up to salt through the winters. The 2006 Tundra I had looked fantastic when I traded it in last week. Paint it once when new, then undercoat with fluid film and they really hold up. I guess I'm just obsessive about the underneath looking as good as the skin AND I HATE RUST!

Your right! Between the ride and the interior you'd think it was a Cadillac! I am thoroughly impressed! I almost hate to do it but I'm going to put a ranch hand bumper on the front. I would cry like a 12 year old little girl if I smoked a deer with this thing!! And thank you! I am still stoked!

Congrats and I hear ya about the performance. I had mine for about 10 days. A little while ago I moved my 46' goose neck in the yard - at idle it was moving it. My 2004 6.0, I had to give it some throttle - about 2psi of boost on the gauge. This is way to funny. This truck is a torque monster. I can't wait to go on my 1,600 mile trip. I was all smiles moving around in the yard, I will have to chisel the smile off my face when I return.

Congrats again and good luck!

The only negative: I know I will get ripped apart for this. I installed the Edge tow tune, my mileage dropped driving city & Hwy. I will take a trip with the tune, switch back to stock for the ride home.

I called H&S about there products to find out about there tow tune. They said they do not make a tow tune and do not recommend towing with there tune.
