I picked up this F150 today. It has some nice features. I'll break it in on a trip to Lake Champlain and Thanksgiving week I will test it out on a trip to Frisco. I liked my Pathfinder but I like this more.

Which version and engine? I am amazed at how big full-sized pickups are now.

Super nice! Liking that Ecoboost - aren't ya?! I love mine. 2012 Platinum SuperCrew with 3.5L Ecoboost. Just turned 160K miles. One thing, though - do not slouch on the maintenance!! Spark plugs every 40K. It looks new, so you might want to think about a catch-can for it. Really helps keeping carbon build up under control. The worst thing about the Ecoboost F150 is they are direct injection into the cylinder, so the fuel doesn't keep carbon, etc cleaned up as it goes through the valves and components. Carbon build up can be quite an issue. If you haven't checked it out yet, Ford Tech Makuloco on YouTube - great videos on how to do anything you might need to do on that truck.

Congrats! Great looking truck!!

The FordTechMakuloco videos are excellent!

Saved me money when my wife's Escape threw some codes. Had to clean the capless fuel filler since it wasn't sealing completely. Then change the vacuum purge valve.

Excellent step-by-step brake job videos so you know you have everything you need before you start.

I may but I have a oceanfront house in Frisco for Thanksgiving and one in Rodanthe in February so probably not then. Never know though about the one in Frisco. Next July I have one in Frisco a couple of houses back. The grandkids are coming and I wanted a pool for them but the oceanfront ones with a pool are too expensive for me. That week I will probably get the permit and go on the beach a bit.
