The best part is the message centre in the dash asking you if you have connected the trailer, wiring & chains step by step. I guess I could just spray paint flat black over the message centre lens. But knowing the idle time the programmers must have on their hands if they took the time to create this, the truck probably won't go in gear until you answer all of the questions correctly...
And I agree with Fordsforever, the trucks kept getting better looking every year until the '08's came out...then whoops. The other thing on the 08+ is that the pebble finish on the dash must be brutal to keep clean. My wife's Cobalt has that finish so I don't even try, everything sticks to it.
I am anxious for the new engine to succeed. Many are saying this will be Ford's last kick at the deisel market, they HAVE to get it right this time after the 6.0 & 6.4. Lets all cross our fingers and pray, shall we?
I walked around one and sat in it in Kentucky and I gotta say it is an improvement (IMO) over the 08-11 front end but but still does not beat the 05-07 or even the 99-04 for that matter. It's not just a new hood, the whole front clip is new but it looks like the cab back has not changed.
