Couple of quick additions to my original post here......

- ---Some people on the list have mentioned going with the V10 instead of the
5.4L (I can afford the extra $300 for the V10 but not the extra $4000 for
the diesel)...... what kind of gas mileage do each of these tend to get
with an automatic, the standard rear-end, with mainly highway driving????
And has the V10 been as durable as the 5.4??

- ---About how much $$$ can I expect to get taken off the sticker on a
special-order truck such as this??? I know the dealer has a margin of
about $3500 or so between dealer invoice and sticker, and the small dealer
in town here said they would take $1000 off sticker plus my 1st time
buyer/college graduate discount of about $500 more....so as it stands, I
know I can get $1500 off sticker. Should I be able to get more off, or is
this all I can expect on such a high-demand vehicle???


Thanks everyone!

Ben

Paul:

There is just a point in all this when one begins to wonder what some people
do with their trucks/cars/whatever's. Sometimes it's as if no one drives
their vehicle, they just sit and admire it's pristine, "wish-it-was-in-the-
showroom" condition. Under normal circumstances a ding or a scratch is
inevitable, period!

This "water on the exhaust" will move to the "how big should the puddle of
water be" shortly yet again; it just gets a little redundant.

My nickle......
