Finally Did It!

I've hinted at it for a couple of weeks; figured it was about time I upload and post some pictures of my new ride.

After 6 years and 326,606 kms I figured a reasonable 40th birthday present to myself would be a brand new F150. After a brief visit to Winegard Ford in Caledonia and a couple of phone calls the paperwork was signed and I was the proud new owner of a 2014 FX4 supercrew. I count myself very lucky since it was too late in the year to order the truck I wanted; it took two days but they were able to find me the exact configuration I was looking for.





It's been six weeks and I've put just over 10,000 km on the truck; it really hurts when they're new. I realize that it's probably not a fair comparison, especially since the Ranger served me well for six years but the F150 runs circles around it in terms of being a truck. The funny thing was that I didn't really want a supercrew, I figured the supercab would be sufficient. Thankfully there were only three available in Canada, two black and one red, both of which were no-go for colour. I don't even notice the extra space behind me, and with several backpacks, tool bags, extension cords and other stuff I couldn't be happier that I was converted to the big cab. When it will really shine is in a couple of weeks when four of us head to Alabama for a golf trip.

So far I've done 3M on the hood, window tint, extang tonneau and deezee tailgate assist. I've got t-track rails to install, just waiting a bit before I have it Krowned and get the rails installed.

Maybe now I'll fit in with the rest of the crew at the Horton's meets :-)

Congrats John. I don't know how the newer ones ride but love my
old truck just the way it is balanced and handles.

Such is life. Just passing through.

Sharp looking truck John, congrats on the new ride. The colour keyed bumpers and blacked out grille with HID's look great.

I got a feeling you won't regret room in the Supercrew either , I don't miss the Supercab in the least.
