New truck is here...sort of

Well, I ordered it 10/19 and it's at the dealer today! Problem is I can't pick it up until after the first of the year. WOW it's going to be a LONG DECEMBER! I'll try to get over to the dealer this weekend and post some pics. I sat in it and started it up today and went over it to make sure I got everything I ordered and all was good....CAN'T WAIT! LOL!

Congrats on the new truck!

Some sort of tax thing I'm guessing? Too bad you can't take possession of it, that would be torture!

Not a tax thing, I'm buying it on D-plan (which is for immediate family of ford employees i.e. my father) Problem is he only gets to sell 2 per year on D-plan and he already has this year. So now I have to wait until next year so he's got 2 for the calendar year again. And yes it's day 1 and it's already torture!

Congratulations on the new truck.
That would kill me to have to wait a whole month with it sitting there on the lot. Hell it torture just waiting 3 months while it was on order and it sat on the lot for 1 day.

Ahh, gotcha. I bought on x plan so I know you're gettin' a good deal. It'll be worth the wait when youre signing the paperwork!

thanks, I'm very excited but somehow have to keep it together for the rest of the year! A couple things I didn't add to the order but will get once I get the truck will be the all weather floor mats and the roll up tonneau cover. also I'm going to get the fog lights. Can't wait, she's a sweet lookin' ride! Hopefully Sunday I'll get some pictures of it.

It's going to be a painful December but will be worth it. I've had my truck for a week now and I love it. Took a month from order to delivery, much sooner than I thought.

yup, very quick. It came in two weeks before the estimated delivery date I was given.
I posted up some pics in the Super Duty forum a few minutes ago, title is 'My 6 year old son said 'this thing is SICK' LOL
