Brought this home for the weekend....

2012 SD 350 4X4 Crew Cab
Lariat 6.7, 6 Speed Auto, Pale Adobe Metallic, Adobe Leather, FX4, w/3.55's.

Going in on Monday to do the paperwork. Two others we wanting to test drive it once we took it for a test drive and didn't want to chance it staying there and getting bought. Anyhow, dealership doesn't have many 2012's. Between Truck Month rebates, trade equity, and the fact that I'll pretty much be getting it at invoice due to a relative who is the Parts Mgr. there, I will be getting one hell of a deal on it.

Any Pro's/Con's etc you all can offer me? You all helped me out a great deal when I bought my '08 and would like to ask your advice once again.

It has all of the goodies, sun roof, nav system, leather, etc.

Any and all advice opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Robert

See if you can get a free oil change before you sign the paperwork as its been sitting for a while. Keep an eye on the tires for cracking. No cons except for new console on 13 s.

Yes, if its been on the lot for 12 months have them change oil and service, change wiper blades, and check for cracking on sidewalls of tires especially if Michelins!

I just bought a 2012 KR and had everything done including new tires, upgraded to BFG 285/65R20 and it made a huge difference!

Let me know how she pulls that camper I want a '12 or newer because of the exhaust brake. The downhills are fun with these 5th wheels

I see you have the 2013 Cougar. I never had problems towing it with the 08. Matter of fact, two summers ago we towed it up and over Wolf Creek Pass in CO. with no problems at all. The exhaust brake is a GOOD thing!

Just came back from a 300 mile trip pulling my 36ft Keystone Montana 5ver 12000 lbs over the Cascade Range in Oregon. Haul mode is your friend for coming down a 6% grade. Couple taps of the brake pedal and down shifts to 5th, another tap and down to 4, if needed it'll drop to 3rd and pull about 3,000 rpm and that's plenty of hold back without braking coming down the grade. All the power I need going up and IM very much at ease coming down. Couldn't be happier with the F 350 6.7.
