Talking Wifey surprise

Well guys,

This morning my wife dropped a bomb on me... We had been planning to get her a van within the next month and Myself a New F-350 (replacing my 09 F-150 due to weight of trailer and atv's) She had been very set on getting herself the new van. This morning she said "I really like your truck that you have now. I think I'm going to drive it instead of getting the Van". Needles to say i was pleased as the truck is paid off. Then comes the surprise, She says "Why dont you get your diesel now?"

IM LIKE WOMAN MARRY ME AGAIN...

Ok so now im in a pickle. Do i go with a 2012 or wait for the 2013? Or wait for the 2013 and then get the 12?

My Specs for the truck will be.

F-350 CC 4X4 LB Diesel 6.7

uggg what to do...

If you buy a 2012 now, in 3 months it will be considered a year old. You might save 3k buying a 12, but unless you plan on keeping the truck for a long time (5+ years) your best money is on a 13.

I'm sure you could get some great deals on a 12 now but choices may be limited. If you don't mind waiting, you could have a 13 built to your specs. BTW, your wife is awesome, definately a keeper.

Yes, the '13s will have more creature comforts and bigger brakes. I was checking out the order guide on another forum last night.

I'd agree, you're close enough to the 2013 YM coming out, I'd wait a bit and get one you want.

Congrats - You hang on to your Mrs....
