Done with the Duramax ?

I saw a platinum F-250 yesterday, that shiny tailgate cover would sure keep the tailgaters off your back at night.

Don't get a white platinum... It will look like all the other XL work trucks on the road.

Of the four colors offered I'd go Silver.

But then again I always buy silver.

Hides dirt and isn't mistaken for a contractor truck.

I just bought a 2013. Loaded out, black interior, Plat White paint. Pretty nice truck. Ive owned every engine, 7.3, 6.0, 6.4 and now this 6.7... I'd say its the best one. Dont do any pulling/towing, its basically just a date night/grocery getter. Been seeing 16-17.5 on the hiway. Im not complaining! Go buy one!

Try this - it has it (bottom of list) , you might have to change your zip code to acccess the Platinums?

http://bp3.ford.com/2013-Ford-F-250?...xterior/Config[|Ford|F-250|2013|1|1.|.W2B.....CBC.X3J.CRW.NFLEET.RET.99T. 4X4.44W.PLA.~F-250.]


for some reason it shows going from an 8' bed to a 6 3/4" cost an extra $2805.??

King ranch short bed is $5190 more than short bed??

Lariat Long bed is $200 more than short bed?

No consistency and what seems like reversed login for the KR & Platinum. (on bed size anyway)

Every little option that gets changed will change others. Gear ratios in particular. Maybe changing bed length was also changing cab configuration?

I just bought a 6.7 a month ago.

My only regret is not getting rid of the duramax and buying this one sooner....

But -- you gotta watch the top end speed -
I was pulling 19,000 pounds tonight and looked down and skeered myself

Maybe so, I've already got mine so I was just looking to see what they are going for in 2013.
I hope no one steals my 11 cause I've got it just the way I want it (mostly stock with a few goodies) and would hate to have to replace it.

Makes towing my stuff to and from the lease a breeze- unless there is a strong side breeze

The small tank on the short beds is its one true flaw.

Congrats! Post pictures when you get it. My only complaint with my 2011 is that the fuel tank only holds 26 gallons.
