Test drove '08 SD today

So, I was at a dealer today making use of my free oil change coupon.
Salesman asked me how the truck was running, yada yada would you like to take a Superduty for a drive? Sure, I say.
Need less to say, the wheels are turning I drove a F250 King Ranch Crew Diesel. The road ride was very similar to my F150 Larait.
I was really impressed with the automatic transmission, it was flawless in shifting. The power was there when needed effortlessly, I have now had a chance to drive the new SDs on and off road and I am impressed.
Now one question remains, should I?

lets put it this way. i thought ( imo) that the ford super duty was with out a doubt the ugliest truck i have ever laid eyes on........ untill today. one of the oil feild consultants that i do alot of work for, rolled up in a brand new ford super duty that was the best looking truck i have ever put my peepers on. it was done up to perfection and now im considering 1 . in stock form they are ok but throw a few tastefull after market parts on a sd350 and........ BLAM ......... instant show looking truck. im going to get 1 for myself next year but id say go for it. bd:

He was trying to tell me that $27000 plus tax credit is pretty close to $31000, but I also lose about $3000 cash that I could get for bolt-ons.
I have another dealer that offered me $31000, going to talk to them on Friday but doubt ful they are only willing to deal on a stock truck and not locate what I want.

I'm taking a huge hit in the trade so there is a fine line of yes or FU!

Also contemplated an '08 F150 King Ranch, than I can transfer all my goodies. But than I thought......why?
