New Ford Owner

Well folks I'm buying my first Ford since my f-150 in 1992. My father works for GM and have had a 2012 Silverado 2500 hd with d/a combination. This has been a great truck but after two years of dealing with vibration starting at 68mph and never stops at our above this range and multiple trips to the dealer with no resolution.

My wife and I have made a deal on a 2014 F350 Platinum cc with 8' bed. After a week of negotiations I was able to get the price knocked down by $12.5k. We are excited and nervous at the same time, I am hoping that this truck lives up to my towing needs and overall a great family vehicle.

Pics will follow when pick up for delivery.

That nervousness goes away with each mile you drive. Change is sometimes unsettling, but you made a good choice.
Welcome to the Org. Sir! I'm glad to see a Patriot join us.
It would be interesting to hear how the two trucks compare both good and bad.
