Jasonburrwc84 So I just couldn't do it. I couldn't leave Ford. I sold my 2012 and bought a 2019 F350 Crew Cab long bed from Tim Dahle Ford. I fly out and drove it back over 2K miles home. I saved a ton and he had the exact truck in stock that I wanted. Here are a few of the things I like / dislike / and I’m not sure of.

Likes

I LOVE LOVE the 48 gallon fuel tank
The entertainment system seems more responsive and all the cameras come on quicker.
The multiple cameras are great....a big help when pulling in tight spaces.
For whatever reason the air is cooler than my 2012 ever was.
The long bed seems to tow smoother.
Love the autolocking tailgate.
Transmission seems to shift smoother. 2012 shifted rough when it was brand new.

Dislikes

My deleted 2012 was more powerful and got alot better gas mileage.
No a big fan of the new door handle design....just feels cheap to me.

Not sure

The aluminum bed just feels like it will not hold up. When you close the tailgate it feels extremely light.

All in all I love the truck. Hopefully this is a proven powertrain that will last a long time. Thanks to everyone for all the feedback.

ZMANN Those failing bed liners will be a real mess when trapped water freezes

jman37 GM is already worse off, didn't they go with like a carbon fiber based bed or something?

Navion13! I'd be taking that back to Ford for a Warranty Repair and a equivalent Rental Reimbursement as well. The liner looks like it is sprayed super thin and makes me second guess buying the factory spray in bed liner.

On another note I think we will find that GMC and Ram will have the same issues in the future as they change their trucks to meet the EPA emissions standards by dropping the weight of their trucks by going with Aluminum as well.

TeddyD I have the OEM spray in liner and all my previous trucks had a private shop linex sprayed box liner. The private shops put that stuff on way thicker which would help protect the box more.

OEM spray liner or aftermarket?

6.7Scorpion I forgot to add a big negative for the ford. We have all f250 trucks at work, and the aluminum box bed is terrible. we have holes in all our truck beds. put a baker pump in the box and a week later its rubbed a hole through the bed. throw materials and things in the box and put holes through it. they have the spray in liners for the trucks and have been putting plywood down in the boxes as they go in for services. we never used to have any holes in any of our old trucks 08-12 f250's and its the same guys driving them so they are treated the same. Been thinking of adding the plastic drop in liner in mine

And G8or is absolutely right, if Dodge didn't part with Cummins, there would probably only be 2 companies to choose a diesel truck from. About the only good thing about those trucks is the motor, and that's it. Love the Cummin fanboys who talk crap....but it's not even a Dodge motor. At least the 6.7 is built by Ford.
I always thought Chevy interiors were not up to par. They always seemed "cheap" to me.
