Lariat Versus Xlt?!

Well the time has come bank approved me up to 65k to purchase a new truck. I'm keeping the 6.0 but it needs a new oil cooler (again) and the steering box has seen better days.

Now whats the difference between lariat and xlt?

I want leather seats and the cool ford start up screen in the gauge cluster. I'm purchasing a 2011-2012.

Also will 20x10 with 35x12.5 fit on a stock truck with minor rubbing at full lock

Do your self a favor now, and only look at Lariat premium interior IMO!


Heated and A/C seats!

I believe Lariats come with Leather, and productivity screen standard. Where the XLT model sometimes has them, and sometimes does not. (depends on if someone ordered it)

And the 20X10 wheels will work just fine with an offset between +15 and 0.

Are you ordering your truck or just going to a dealer? My boss ordered his XLT with leather seats. Every truck at the dealer was lariat that included leather but maybe you will get lucky though, what are your plans for the 6.0? High hp maybe?

Yup I want leather looks like Lariat is the choice, gotta have the message center in the gauge cluster. Dealer or private just seeing whats around my area.

Plans for the 6.0 is electrical or air lockers front and rear, 4.30 gears making it my mudding truck.

I have little to no knowledge about aftermarket lockers. Sorry. One of our fellow members should chime in soon.

I bought a 2012 Lariat cc sight unseen through a friend at auction with 3k miles on it. It was a nice truck but was a base lariat. No heated seats, took forever to warm up in winter. Two things I couldn't stand about it. I traded it in 2weeks ago for a 13 Lariat ultimate, loaded with everything. Heat/cool seats, aux heater, Nav,moonroof, camera, twenties. Now I'm happy. Don't be fooled by Lariat on the fender. The base is pretty sparce.

to the OP, do yourself a favor and buy the lariat fully loaded. This is the first vehicle I've ever bought that was fully loaded and I Love it. If your approved for 65k you will be able to find exactly what you are looking for and end up paying much less. I bought mine in Ohio and got the dealer to take 13k off the sticker which included an extended warranty. I have no regrets and Love my new truck. Good luck and let us know, including pics, what you buy.
