bought 2012 F250 Lariat today

Hello all

I originally joined the site almost 2 years ago when my Duramax croaked on me.... I was just about to pull the trigger on a 7.3L F350 but it never happened. I ended up going with an 07 F150. I like the truckl and it really turned me on to Ford. In fact Im not even trading it. Im keeping the F150 as a work truck for my business.

Anyway, today I went to the dealership and worked out a deal on a brand new 2012 F250 Lariat 4x4.

I test drove a Duramax a couple of times and the Ford several times. There is no comparison. Ive become a Ford man. This 6.7L is viscous and the interior is huge and luxurious. I pretty much got all the features except for the navigation.

Anyway, my truck was still at the plant in KY and is being delivered Monday, so I just wanted to say hello and I look forward to taking good care of my new baby with all the information here on this site. I will post a pic when I pick it up Monday morning.

Welcome and congrats! Your story is pretty much the same as mine only minus the Duramax part. LOL. I just purchased my 2012 as well. I actually wanted to buy mine back in July but not too many deals or rebates at the time. Bought a 150 instead.
