    I think Ford is well aware of it's "intended purpose"...crawling over speed bumps in supermarket parking lots, but looking uber-cool while doing it.

    Did they rework the internals of the 3.5 ecoboost to get it up to 450 ponies or is it mostly in the tune?

    DUAL direct injection, shares the block with the new ford GT, direct port injection, same 10 speed as the ZL1 Camaro

    802a add a lot of money and not much value to me. I dont need adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection, etc. Had to get the pano roof despite the price though :o

    Who did you order it through, and how is your experience thus far?

    Did you happen to get close to msrp?

    Ordered through a local dealer in Central Maine. No experience really, its been over the phone. I did the build online, emailed it to them, and called and made a $1k deposit.

    got it for $1k UNDER MSRP, which is crazy, most dealers are asking $5-$10K OVER MSRP.

    Wish I could have got the bead lock wheels and carbon fiber, but thats about $2k more for bullshit and its an expensive truck as it is.

    Beadlock look wheels are just silly to me. Real ones are also illegal for road use in most states so I can't imagine Ford selling actual beadlocks...

    Why the heck are beadlock wheels illegal? They look better because of the spoke pattern and the dark color, they are just better looking wheels.

    I got these cast aluminum 17" wheels:



    for $1,165 you can get these forged aluminum 17" wheels:



    much better looking wheel IMO.

    Ford site lists them as, "Beadlock Capable Wheels"

    What Ford is selling as a bead lock wheel isn't a true bead lock, it's a simulated bead lock. You do understand what a bead lock wheel is, right?

    I did some digging on this, apparently that wheel set can be converted to true bead locks: https://performanceparts.ford.com/do...007-DC1785.pdf

    If you do so, they tell you not to use them on the road.

    Yes, I do understand what a beadlock wheel is. It says "beadlock capable" which makes me think it is more than just simulated.
