The Ford F-Series trucks have a King Ranch edition that is sold through out the USA. It's above the Lariat edition.
A lot of the reason Ford / Chevy / Dodge have their own Texas version of their trucks is for PR reasons, but also because there are more trucks sold in texas than anywhere else in america.
Why shouldn't Texas have their own truck edition?! Texas has more domestic owned vehicles then most other states. You go to California now a days and all you see is foreign vehicles. I give kudos to Texas vehicle owners for being loyal and sticking with domestic automobiles.
Kudos to Texas! You deserve your own version of a truck.

The King Ranch is in Texas - about the size of Wyoming.
I have an 09' F150 Texas Edition SuperCrew. It has the chrome trim package, 17" 7 spoke rims, two tone exterior, tow package, tan cloth interior w/ two tone trim on the inside. It comes with the 4.6L and is two wheel drive. I get 17mpg in city and 22mpg highway.
I upgraded from an 07' F150 STX Regular Cab (my 09' dwarfs it) best decision i made.
By coincidence I saw a Texas Edition F-150 in my neighborhood just yesterday, complete with Texas plates on it. My wife wanted to know what it was as compared to my KR but I couldn't remember much about this model.
(1) the f-150 heritage edition was only in 2004. It was a 2004 model that was the same body style as the previous body style where the other 2004 models were the new body style. (2) ....
i know the post is 2 years old, but i'm looking for some help... i c u say the heritage is a 2004 only, but...
my VIN says i have a 2000 F150 Heritage... it is postions 5-7: F17, and the decode reveals as "F-Series F150 Heritage 4X2 (Regular Cab) Styleside Truck"
what i can't find out is what difference Heritage makes in this case - what equipment or whatever is specific to this model. All i've been able to find is exactly what you said, that it's 2004 specific, but then i've got this 2000 vin decode...
For your information, I recently ran across this info from Ford Parts ...
The new 2009 2010 2011 OEM ford Texas Edition Emblem carries part number 9L3J-84407B36-AB and it is technically called the Texas Badge Kit.
The Oklahoma Badge Kit is part number 9L3J-84407B36-BB and both kits include 3 separate paper cut out templates for exact placement on F150 , expedition , and Superduty tailgates.
I will pick up my F150 XLT Texas Ranch truck tomorrow here in WV. From what I have found is the Ford Dealer "Texas Ranch" sold these trucks. its just an XLT until he put his logo on it. Beautiful truck and I can't wait. Mine has the hard cover over the bed with the wing on it.
