2013 Kodiak Brown baby bear will be born on Mon. June 25

Ordered on June 8th 2012, will be built (born) Monday June 25th after an exhausting 18 hrs of Labor. She will be a beautiful shinny Kodiac Brown XLT with the 3.5, FWD, 201A pkg and trailer tow pkg and 6 speed select shift tranny with tow haul mode. I already have a window sticker and an ETA of July 9th. Starting to get anxious, but cant complain if the ETA date holds it will only be 1 month and 1 day from order date. I have had nothing but pickups as my personal vehicle for close to 20 years, and never cared much for the suv's until Ford waved this one under my nose. These vehicles ride and drive fantastic and still feel big and safe! I will update the progress as I get them and do a good review once she is here. Almost went with the Gem Green, but last min drove 50 miles to see one in Kodiak Brown, it was love at first sight! Gonna have to buy some cigars on Monday!

Well she was born on the 25th and is some where on a train right now, my EST del. date is now July 12th but we will see how many times that changes.

Nice lookin' ride. Interior pics?

I'm torn between getting buckets in the 2nd row or a bench. With 4 kids and my mother in law livin' with us, there's a small chance we all go somewhere at once, which I'd need that bench seat, but the buckets look sooooo nice. Anyways, congrats on the new ride!

Very sharp for sure. Now that you have some seat time, how is the paint holding up in terms of swirls and scratches being a little darker then normal? Black can be bad but it isn't quite black so I am interested how it hides it. I am thinking of ordering the Plat. Superduty in Kodiak Brown.

I didn't care for that color when we were looking, but its growing on me. I let the wife talk me into getting her the Gem Green. I prefer black, but this one has grown on me, too. Congratulations.
