Picked up my 2014 F450 today

Was supposed to be in Saturday. Called my salesman on his way to work to ask him to double check that date. He called back 15 minutes later and said he was looking at my truck!



Thanks to Crystal for her help tracking my truck during the order process.

That looks to be a beautiful truck. Congratulations! Do you have any larger pics of it? Those are too small!

You're welcome, MX727! What a sweet-lookin' truck; I'm sure you'll have lots of fun adventures together.

Love the ruby red. I think for my next I too would be very inclined to get the 450 with 4.30 gears.

You will have to post your impressions once broken in.

Lovely truck. The ruby red is the cat's meow. I love it on my F350. Only drawback is you want to keep washing it so it shines like new. Keep us posted on it as it breaks in. I'm averaging a hand calculated 16.6 MPG right now with the 20" SRW. I'd be interested in how the dually does.

Depends on what speeds you're running on the highway.

So curiosity,,, what was it OTD? I looked online, build your own @ Ford.com before I bought my 2 "older" F350's,,, I was floored by the cost of a new one.

And yes I LOVE the color! Very nice lookin rig ya got there!!

Not much in the way of incentives right now. I got 1750 off and I was X-plan.

I ordered on 6/5, truck was built on 8/2 (early AM) because by the time Crystal checked on it, it was built. They also took it for a 23 mile test drive. Even sent a note with the truck that they'd done that. I figure this was one of the first F450's off the line. Good news is the alignment is spot on.
