Newbie Here!

Heloo Everyone.
I'm new to forum, ford, and diesel.
I just traded in my 2010 GMC sierra 2500hd for 2012 f350 KR PSD.
I love the interior (I mean leather not the interior panels) and the power!
Can't wait to make some tweaks on it!
I'm here to learn more about the truck, and hopefully it will be a longtime before I need a new truck

Thank you sirs!!!
I'm researching for mods already and making a list lol.

The reason for switch was simple = POWER
My original plan was to go with Duramax but it's almost impossible to find the truck with optioned I wanted and I didn't want to order.
Then I test drove 2011 6.7 and liked it, and foudn bunch of them in local dealers so I jumped on it.
Can't really speak about the differences since I have put less than 100mi on the new truck, but I LOVE the braking!

I kinda wish I had gotten a better deal since I've been reading about crazy deals in the forum, but I think I did ok haha.
Well, never look back what you can't fix, right?
BTW, I'm learning alot about this truck just by reading threads, can't wait to learn more while I put some miles on it.

Thanks for the welcome!!
I've put couple hundred miles so far, and still getting used to it.
So far, I love the truck because it sits higher than my old GMC, and can turn radius is great!
But, I noticed pretty high wind noise around 80mph, and I am going to pay closer attention again when the weather clears up.
Now, I'm working on the mod lists, and it is so hard haha, so many to choose from.
I will snap some quick pics before I start modding!
Stay tuned

Edit: I attached the quick picture of the truck and the trailer.
Now, let the modding begin!
