Well guys,

This morning my wife dropped a bomb on me... We had been planning to get her a van within the next month and Myself a New F-350 (replacing my 09 F-150 due to weight of trailer and atv's) She had been very set on getting herself the new van. This morning she said "I really like your truck that you have now. I think I'm going to drive it instead of getting the Van". Needles to say i was pleased as the truck is paid off. Then comes the surprise, She says "Why dont you get your diesel now?"

IM LIKE WOMAN MARRY ME AGAIN...

Ok so now im in a pickle. Do i go with a 2012 or wait for the 2013? Or wait for the 2013 and then get the 12?

My Specs for the truck will be.

F-350 CC 4X4 LB Diesel 6.7

uggg what to do...

Haha,

Does Carli suspension offer any 2012 kits? (or is the 11 kit for) the 2012?

If you buy a 2012 now, in 3 months it will be considered a year old. You might save 3k buying a 12, but unless you plan on keeping the truck for a long time (5+ years) your best money is on a 13.

I'm sure you could get some great deals on a 12 now but choices may be limited. If you don't mind waiting, you could have a 13 built to your specs. BTW, your wife is awesome, definately a keeper.

Yes, the '13s will have more creature comforts and bigger brakes. I was checking out the order guide on another forum last night.

I'd agree, you're close enough to the 2013 YM coming out, I'd wait a bit and get one you want.

Congrats - You hang on to your Mrs.... :nod:

Glad to see you got the CC with back seat. A good woman like yours will enjoy that if you use it right (wink).

I suggest you rat hole $400 - $500 and surprise her with a nice piece of jewelry the day you bring the new truck home. Show some love back for the sacrifice she gave you.

I have been married ONCE to my high school sweetheart for 43 years next month. They never forget the small things you do. Just sayin

Congrats on the surprise! I'd be down at the dealer the first day they let you order a '13 if they haven't started yet. And as said above make sure you get her a gift too for letting you get the truck of your dreams.

If you can order one do that. I just got a 2012 and let me tell you the lots are naked when it comes to diesel trucks. I was lucky enough to find one I liked. Most dealers I checked into only had one or two and they would be a F-250 work truck. Nothing fancy

Depends where you are if you can get a deal on 12s..... We have a lot of shale work etc around here. These trucks seem to go quick. I am not seeing deals on 12s at all. If I had that green light, I would order one exactly how I wanted it!

Hey guys,

Im not ignoring this thread just stuck working on night shift ;)

So an update:

My wife is super excited to have the F-150. So i sent he shopping today. Well the pick out the tonneau cover she liked
Pace-Edwards Full-Metal JackRabbit Spring-Action Retractable Tonneau Cover
Then I showed her a few links to other truck parts. She now wants the led lighting in the box. She wants spray in bedliner instead of the plastic insert. She also wants me to upgrade the stereo to a full blow nav system with sub box.

Yes my wife is amazing, She already was going to phoenix for 3 weeks with my daughter since im going to be stuck working. Maybe something shiny i shall buy her....

But yeah as for the truck Im going to wait a see the 2013 and may just order one of them.

But yeah, bring your wife home a nice piece of jewelry. And I'd look into getting a 2013 platinum edition 6.7. Just sayin.
