My 2011 F-350 is here!

My truck was delivered to the dealer on Friday and I picked her up on Saturday morning. While she was 14 weeks and nearly 15 from order to delivery, in the end both Ford and my dealer came through for me. Both treated me and my concerns with a lot of respect and made everything right. The truck is simply everything I expected and much more.

I ordered the F-350 Lariat in the following configuration:
  • 6.7 L Powerstroke Diesel
  • Super Cab
  • SRW
  • 3.55 E locker
  • Chrome step bar
  • Camper package (I've purchased a 2010 Lance 861 short-bed truck camper with slide out)
  • Heavy duty alternator
  • Spray in bed liner
  • Lariat interior package
  • Golden Bronze Metallic
Now here's the reason that I've been so anxious to get my truck and something that I never revealed to Ford or my dealer until my truck arrived. My wife is a 2-time cancer survivor who has already outlived her life expectancy. She's in good health now and has a great attitude, but she likes to camp and wanted to get out as much as possible. And so I decided to purchase this setup to accomplish her wishes and mine too. We're now going to be able to do that thanks to this great Ford truck!

Congratulations ICE! She's beautiful and will definitely deliver on those expectations. Enjoy those days on the lawn chair by the lake! There's lots of summer still left.

I'm glad you have finally received your truck.
With such a great story, the wait must have been even more difficult.
Nice to see another supercab, it looks great!

That's the exact way I've been spec'ing out my next truck except I want a CC.
Please post pictures with the slide in as that is also in my cards (hopefully).

Go and enjoy your wife and the great outdoors. The world is a better place when you wake up from a night camping in the great outdoors!
