Thanks guys, I am really enjoying it.
Clarkely tell him it is more of a bracket than parenthesis.

The headlights are viewed as 'C' clamps.   ;)

Regardless of how you think of it, it's still a gorgeous truck

Those are good looking trucks and so far I'm hearing good things from the owners.  Anyone get that new automatic trailer backing feature I saw advertised?

I am really liking it. Have to get use to the new camera, they seem to have more of a fish eye view than what the F150 had.
Really like being higher up and the ride is comfortable.

I wish my mileage was better but I know this will never get what I was getting in the F150 w/ the Ecoboost.

Almost have my 1000 miles so the trailer will be hooked up soon and going for a tow. I might have to adjust the hitch a bit.

I have more cameras than I know what to do with. Once I can tow, I will see what some of the new features can do on mine. The front one has been handy when pulling into a tight spot.

The trailer backing system is only available on the F150.

I did not order the camera package but I agree the backup camera is not as good as the old one. I have towed with mine, long bed SRW, and I think it may ride smoother than my dually did, definitely no worse. I loooovvvvee this truck!

I wonder if they have options for a different camera? I know the camera in my 16 Ram is 10X better than the camera on my wifes 16 Chrysler 200. I'm thinking about seeing if I can get the camera for my truck and replace it in her car. I measured and they look identical I just don't know if the plugs are the same.

It did fantastic. I was very pleased. But my fiver is only 12000 lbs and 2600 on the pin. Keep going up in weight and the dually will outperform the single. At this point I would feel comfortable with a big fiver and this truck, not saying a dually wouldnt be better, but I wouldnt be afraid to try it.
