Invertors are cheap to add until large compressors. Had an 89 Dodge Daytona with 3 1100w invertors to power underbody & inner neon plus we installed a wall outlet for gfriends curling iron, hair dryer, etc.

I would like to see the Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum offered in a regular cab configuration.

Also I'm with the locking fuel door.

I would like to see a wider range of gear options. Why can't I get a 6.2 with 4.88s

How about a just plain-jane back to basics 3/4 ton short bed with a standard trans, roll-up windows with simple ala-carte options like just AC and stuff like that.. Ford's "packages" are okay just as that, but give us the ability to buy just heated seats without having to spend a ton of money on stuff we don't want!

IMHO, the mfgr that has enough ***** to do that will win a LOT of customers away from the other two..

And no... Toyota and Nissan do not count as mfgrs of heavy duty work trucks...

Get rid of those god awful hideous fenders on the dually. Tone down the hood/grill & 'Super Duty' advertisements on everything. Option a cargo camera inside the 3rd brake light & last but not least, update the 6.2 with 1 or 2 more valves.

I got to tell you guys I never thought I'd seriously consider owning another Dodge but their 6.4L Hemi sounds like it's a step up from the Ford 6.2. I read quite a few good reviews on RV forums and such on it. More HP, more torque, a bit better MPG, and a 100,000k power train warranty. I'm not drinking the cool aid and prefer to stick with Ford but I believe it is time for Ford to react.

Need a more capable gas engine. No reason why the gasser shouldn't output around 75% of the diesel option.

^^^ We might see that now that the 6.7L is proven and Ford has hopefully recouped most of what they sunk into development when they split from International. It was a huge risk to go in-house, back in '11 I kind of didn't blame them for making the gas option more of a 5.4L/fleet level than a real replacement for where the V10 used to fit, try to push some borderline people into the diesel.

5.0L EB?

How about a better warranty, when you spend $60K+ for a truck, it should have a better warranty than 3/36 and 5/60 powertrain. at least 5/60 bumper and 5/100 for powertrain and 6/150 for engine.

Reading through these comments, It's no wonder these trucks weigh 9,500lbs empty...
