What am I missing? Check my 2019 build

I'm about to place an order for a 2019 F250 6.2 CCSB 4x4 XL to replace my 2018 F250 6.2 CCSB 4x4 XL w/ STX & FX4.

This is what's on my build (sorry, wouldn't format properly so just made a screenshot):



I opted for the XL Value package instead of the STX package. Unless I'm missing something, this means I won't get a chrome grill (I prefer the black XL grill, and will still get the chrome front/rear step bumpers), upgraded 18" wheels (going to be replaced with aftermarket anyway) or an STX vent emblem or cloth seats (I prefer the Vinyl seats at this trim level, they look almost like leather and are very comfortable and don't stain like the cloth seats)

What I will get over my 2018 STX (for only about $2,200 more MSRP) is Remote start, Bed Lighting, Clearance Lights, 4.3 Gears, Sync 3, Ultimate Tow / 360 Camera system, BLIS, Power Sliding Rear Window, Factory Bed liner, etc.

I've gone over the build a few times wanted to see if someone else sees anything obviously missing or wrong. Waiting 2+ months for a vehicle only to realize you didn't understand something or completely missed something would suck.

Thanks!

Nice! Happy to hear that. My dealer just got approval to order mine (hopefully going in tomorrow) just trying to do a last minute sanity check on it.

Looks good. I would add the tailgate step and remove the power sliding rear window. The locking axle is a steal for the price.

This is all your decision. But consider the following...I see many people settling for the F250 when the F350 is not much more expensive and gives you much more payload and towing capacity along with a better rear end and upgraded transmission. I know many people elect for the downgrade due to registration costs. You might consider the fifth wheel prep package if available on the XL trim. I am old fashioned and the BLIS system does not impress me and did not order it. The FX4 package did not interest me as do not do off road and skid plates, hill descent, and different springs were not useful to me. I ended up ordering a base Lariat long bed with the gas engine. And I did add the camper package, and most of the other options you did. Good luck on your order...I love my 2017.

^This assuming you won't be removing the tailgate much. Without the step the tailgate is only 35 lbs and a breeze to remove/install.

You don't mention what you pull, so I assume you were happy with how the 2018 got the job done. Otherwise I'd be suggesting a look at the 350 or at least the camper package.

Havenít used a 5th or gooseneck in my first 38 years of life. Wife considers roughing it to be a 4* hotel so camping is out of the question. I tow a 7k enclosed trailer 5k miles round trip twice a year and vowed to never do it without a diesel again. Havenít towed it with a 3.5 f150 yet, but I love the way it drives with the diesel. Set the cruise and forget about it. Thought about the 350 for payload, but donít want to sacrifice the ride.

Change your order to a 350. I was in same situation,abt to special order 250. Then the lightbulb went on. For $1200 more? 6r140 trans, much beefier, 11300 gvwr, 15000 pulling, over 4,000lb payload. Couldn’t be more happy. It’s at dealer now, waiting to be picked up.
Also...get this...the dealer said “don’t get Ford spray on bed liner. Get Line-X, it’s much thicker and better quality”. For a dealer to suggest...to forego their own brand? Takes guts to say that to a customer.

Lastly...MSOS. Manual shift on stop, NO electronic, and vinyl flooring.

I thought in order to get Sync 3 you also had to get the STX?

If you're towing I would get camper pkg. Or at least snow plow pkg. For better spring rates.

You can get snow plow and camper package in the same line item. It's worth it.

Yes they are. I was lucky enough when I ordered I got the extended running boards for 270 bucks! Now they're over 700. Hahah Fords loss. They fixed the loop hole right after I ordered. I didn't see any step bars on the OPs build unless I overlooked. Unless he doesn't want them.

I'll be adding AMP steps on this one. You can't get the factory steps on an XL...
