Can not decide on which truck

I am having a hard time on deciding which ford to buy. I want a loaded truck but not sure if I want a king ranch or a loaded lariat. The only difference I see in the king ranch is the seats. I do not care about the running boards because I am going to take those off and put on the fold down running boards. I do like the two tone trucks. Just don't know what color. I'm I between the white and black trucks.
Any help or pics wold be great.

Thanks.

The KR trucks basically add an appearance package. There's no difference other than aesthetics between a KR and a full load Lariat and several thousand dollars. In Canada, it's about $7000 more for a KR. Not worth it considering most of the stuff that comes with the KR package is what's usually modded/changed in the future with aftermarket parts. Kind of hard to justify the extra cost for some caramel colored leather that requires more upkeep/maintenance and fades/wears a lot worse than a black or grey leather. I do like the KR though but you definitely can't go wrong with a Lariat.

I struggled with this too. In the end....I chose lariat because:
I really like the silver two tone and didn't want the painted bumpers. I've seen too many of them rust early.
I had researched KR leather and didn't think it would hold up as well to my kid's spilling juice on them.

THIS THING ROCKS!

Thanks for all the help. It sounds like I could get along with a lariat truck that is loaded considering that I want do do a lot of after market bumpers and so on. I have heard that the KR seats are hard to take care of vs the lariat seats. Do the lariat trucks come two tone or just one solid color? Thanks for the help!!

One more thing. I am wanting to be able to pull a gooseneck trailer with a bobcat and attachments. Will a F250 work for me or do I need to be looking at a F350? I do not want a dully. My wife might have to drive it and I do not want to worry about fenders. Lol. I am also plan on putting a 4in lift on it. Not sure what kind yet. It is between Carli and Icon.

The main difference between a 250 and 350 is a leaf pack. If you're getting a long box model, I wouldn't necessarily count the dually out. The new trucks handle amazingly compared to older models. They are way more maneuverable in tight situations such as parking lots and city driving. They're also easier to parallel park sine you can see where your outer wheel is. Just have to be careful in some of the drive-thrus as they're narrow and can cause issues with a dually. As far as lifting it, a Bobcat with attachments seems like it would be very heavy for the Deaver springs in the Carli kit. You'd definitely need to add airbags. I think the 350 has better resale because it can do everything the 250 can and then some and the cost difference is negligible when comparing SRW models.

The bumpers will prolly come off and be replaced with after market replacement bumpers. In y'all's opinion is the F350 ride worse than the F250?
