New 2012 Ford F250 Lariat

Hello all... I just wanted to drop in and introduce myself. Sticky is the name, I'm coming over from the F150Online community (StickyF150). Yesterday I traded in my 2009 Ford F150 Lariat for a new 2012 Ford F250 Lariat.

What an amazing difference, which I naturally expected. The ride quality is superb and the vehicle is extremely quite from inside the cab. I love it already.

I do have to admit that I am not as keen on my knowledge on diesels as I would like to be and/or as I consider myself with the little gasoline brothers.

Anything that all of you experienced PSD owners have that a new guy should know, I'm all ears. I appreciate the info whenever I can get it.

Below you'll find a few pictures of my new truck.

Nice, the two tone looks good on that truck. Have fun with it.

Thanks guys! I've been loving driving it! Much much different than my F150.

Gonna try and get the bed LineX'd after I order the tailgate handle delete panel and bolts. I've already got some mud flaps and WeatherTech digital floor liners on order.

The one thing the truck does not have that I wanted was the Roof Clearance Lights. I've seen the threads about doing an install, they seem pretty straight forward and its all about the measurements. From what I can tell, on the 2012's, the harness connector is behind the pull panel on the drivers side dash? Can anyone confirm that for me?

Thanks!

Good looking truck. I almost got one in that color. I dont know about the wiring harness on the cab lights. That was a deal breaker for me, $55 option holding up a $60k truck. Might want to call around. When I was considering just getting a truck without cab lights and adding them later I got bids for as low as $325 parts and install from dealers. Drilling holes in the roof of a brand new truck makes me cringe.

This might help
adding clearance lights

I gather you don't like the stripper pole either? I got rid of mine within about two weeks of purchase.

I agree about drilling holes in a brand new truck.. Not very keen on the idea!

The stripper pole HAS TO GO.. That thing in horrible!

Great color combo, same as my 2011 F450. I was really surprised that Ford deleted the Golden Bronze color option for 2013.

Enjoy the new truck, they are downright incredible!

I was confused as to why the color was no longer offered in the 2013 models. I thought it was quite popular? I guess not! I love it, hence me going with a 2012 and not a 2013.

I love the truck and I am so glad that I upgraded.

Agreed, and i'm not that old. Would never go back to step-less tailgate - especially since the stock f350 lift now seems to put me on level with all the teeny-bopper's jacked-up tacomas and 1500s when i pull up to a stoplight in town.

I load a lot of hay, brush, wood etc and in and out of the back daily, and even at 6'5" I feel like the bed is too high for a stock rig. But to each his own!

To the OP... sweet truck. Love the color. Enjoy and good luck with it!
