The new F350

Hey guys just wondering if anyone has seen/heard about the newest F350. I buddy of mine from detroit that works for ford sent me these pics and told me to expect to see it in showrooms soon. The flames and lambo doors arent stock, im pretty sure they just did that for the car shows and such. Everything else you see is stock though, winch, lightbar, etc....




Ill add more info as i get it. just wanted to share. I remmeber seeing one in person at the auto show in detroit back in january, but figured it wouldnt end up a production vehicle. personally, i think it looks pretty awesome. (hopefully they put that twin turbo PSD motor in there ive ben hearing about. )

(drooooling) Wow. That is awesome. My dad thinks that in the next few years, the vehicle manufacturers are going to try to ace out all of the aftermarket companies. After seeing this rig, and hearing about that High performance PSD coming out I'm starting to think he might be right.

I really like those doors. I wonder if I could get those on my 86 F350 7.3L?

I wouldnt doubt seeing manufacturers TRY overriding aftermarket companies but they'll never be able to completely wash them out. Im sure that they will surely start adding more and more options and bigger better vehicles but there will still ALWAYS be the desire to be different. Your right though lem, this is a perfect example at their step in that direction. Only thing is, even as expensive as some aftermarket parts are, im sure ford/chevy/etc... will still charge WAYY more than them for these options.

Lem, please tell me you are kidding about liking those doors!

I totally agree, they will never be able to get rid of aftermarket all together.

I do actually think those doors are cool. However I see a few problems with them. Low Ceilings, and then, what about all the little knick knacks that people put in the door? They are going to fall out every time.

Anyways, thanks for posting this info. Good information.

looks liek you could have a problem if the front and rear doors were opened at the same time too. that front door looks awwwwful close to the rear one when opened.

Angry Great Looking Truck!!!!!

It's a great looking truck, BUT, here in CA, the price of fuel is about .35 cents higher that unleaded. It's getting harder and harder to travel with a trailer and afford the cost of fuel these days. I heard the other day that the oil companys are going to raise the price of diesel by 40 cents per gallon in the next two weeks. OUCH

Its sad. There's no reason for it either. Diesel costs less to make, and its not like we are running out of it. The oil companies just know that Diesel controls america, especially when it comes to transportation. And now, sice all the oil companies have merged into 2 companies, there is no competition anymore.

Maybe we should start our own oil compny...
