Hello

Hello all,

Great forum, I've been reading through a lot of the posts on here, and today I ordered my F350 gasser

Because of this forum I went with the 4.30 gears, lariat ultimate package, FX4, in tuxedo black with adobe interior.

the wait begins

Ha ha, sorry I'm doing this on my phone, I thought you asked about the frame!!

They told me to expect 8-10 weeks but this way I get what I want.

Black seems to be a real popular color lately.

Yes, black is pretty much timeless, but a pig to keep clean!

Right now I am looking at going with the Ruby Red Metallic, it will match good with my Toy Hauler.

Great choice too, it was a toss up between Ruby Red and the black for me, I feel undecided now you've mentioned Ruby Red oh well too late!

As soon as you get a VIN number be sure and go to this site and track it's progress Ford Vehicle Build Tracking - F150online Forums

Of all the Ford trucks I have owed this is only the second one that was ordered, the first was a 1978 F150 Ranger. I hate the wait but with a gasser you almost have to so you can get what you want.

U can also track it once a week on the blue oval forum but beware the guy that does tracking can be a cranky guy make sure u read the rules on asking for him to track your truck because he will ream u out if u dont follow them, that being said he does provide a service in his free time that helps us all out.

The black is great, a little more work to keep it clean but man is it worth it when your done.
You will love your truck.
And welcome to FTE

Thanks for the welcome, I'm hoping I've made the right choice on the colour, up here we get a lot of freeze thaw conditions in winter, so it's really hard to keep the truck clean!!

It's snowing today
