'2008 F450 Pickup Ordered on 9/12/07

My dealer (my cousin) submitted an order for our new F-450 Lariat Quad Cab Pickup on 9/12 and we received the DORA on 9/14.

We are full time RVers, tow a 21,000# 5th Wheel and the options we chose to support this lifestyle include Torqshift 5 SPD Auto, Chrome package, Sirius Radio, Supplemental Heater, High Capacity Tow Package (requires 4.88 rear end), 6 CD Audiophile, Traction Control, Upfitter Switches, Heavy Duty Alternator, Static Rear View Camera and Lower Accent paint (white over silver to match our Travel Supreme Fiver colors) and a couple of smaller items.

Thanks to Jimmy, we received an X-Plan pin for the price, thanks to the many members on this site, we got a great education and thanks specifically to Capt Skup, Larry Fifth Wheel, Smokey Wren, Fred Mann and Glenn Shelton, my cloudy issues were clarified.

I'll post updates as we receive them (noticed this morning that Blue Oval Tracking is down) and pictures after we take delivery.

Nice truck you have ordered. At least this time you won't have to have a bed installed on your F-450.

re: '2008 F450 Pickup Ordered on 9/12/07

Dave,

you are going to love the truck when it comes in, I have had mine for almost a week now and just love it. The new method allows the dealer to do what BOF was doing for us. It makes the dealer do the work and not the VOPC. Every week, ask him to track it and you will get the info as it is updated. The camera is excellent even without additional lighting (I added 2 50 watt lamps there)

2015 F-450 King Ranch on order 01/29/2015. Arrived at the dealer on 05/13/2015. Delivered 05/19/2015. Fisher plow has been transferred to the new truck.

2008 F-450 Lariat loaded on order 7/3/07 delivered 9/13/2007 Pueblo Gold and all the goodies except Nav radio and moonroof and Fisher 8'6" X-blade

re: '2008 F450 Pickup Ordered on 9/12/07

Well, it is about dang time. What Ford promised us with the F-450 pickup, they certainly delivered. I have had not one issue with this truck and while I don't have that many miles on it(unfortunately) I expect it to be just as great of a truck as my F-250 6.0PSD was. I self-installed the Reese(Hidden Hitch)Signature Series 24K hitch, getting ready to have the Line-X sprayed in, and prepping for a long tow to Casper, WY from MD. Can't wait. If you are a guy that likes to drive 75+mph, the F-450 is not for you, whether 4.30 or 4.88, but if you want to tow a heavy trailer it is perfect. Haven't tried the supplemental heat yet, but I sure love the bun warmers. Wonder how long till delivery for you, mine took right at three months.

The rear video and the Audiophile are the best options that Ford has offered since Air conditioning.
I'm still shocked at how good the Audiophile sound system really is...

re: '2008 F450 Pickup Ordered on 9/12/07

I will agree with you George on the Audiophile system. Even though I have pretty poor hearing, with the quiet engine and well insulated cab, the sounds that come out of this system is fantastic. Actually got me listening to music again. Well worth the money. That rear view camera setup would be great "if" I could have a remote camera that I could temp. install on the top back roof of the fiver that would send a picture to the cab. Only use I can see for where the camera is now located is for hitching up the boat trailer, and unfortunately I do not get to do that near enough.

re: '2008 F450 Pickup Ordered on 9/12/07

Hmmmmm, I wondered when Blue Oval Tracking might bite the dust. Thanks for the heads up on that Scott.

Jesse, sending our '99 F-450 cab frame through Fontaine added nearly 6 weeks to the delivery process so when Ford offered this version, we jumped at it. Plus the Fontaine bed aftermarket option is now running $9000.

Sure took me long enough didn't it Skup? I was chompin at the bit to get the order in but my cousin kept saying "be patient lad". (They often talk that way in that area of Western New York) [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif[/img] We've found local dealers to install the Pullrite 25.5K Super Fifth, 50 Gallon Transfer Flow tank, LINE-X bed and Retrax bed cover (Yup, I remember you're dead set against the Transfer Flow).

75 MPH and the word RETIRED simply don't match up. Our normal towing speed is 60 mph and 65 on the x ways empty. Got pretty used to the 4.88's and the more comfortable speeds in our 99 F-450.

George, we originally spec'd out the Reverse Aid Sensor but switched it over to the Reverse Video Camera when Job 2 hit the stands. We're really excited with the comments by everyone on the Audiophile system. Can't wait to have my beautiful bride by my side, this fantastic new truck and great music filling the air.

That'll make this ol dude a happy camper. (pun intended) [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smirk.gif[/img]

Hey John! Tania and I are great thanks. Congratulations on your new F-450! Got your PM and sent you a reply. Let me know if I can help with any truck aftermarket ideas you might want to consider for your full time adventure.

Thanks for the heads up! Looks like I'll be able to track it through BOF until it hits the delivery system. I'll do that rather than bug my cousin.

re: '2008 F450 Pickup Ordered on 9/12/07

Thanks Scott.... So far I've got a partial VIN but nothing I can use on BOF. My cousin has been instructed to fax me the VIN as soon as he has it which I'm guessing will be after the KTP October shutdown is over.

We're in no hurry! We'll be in Rochester until the fall of 2008 during which time we need to sell our '99 F-450/Fontaine and get the aftermarket items installed on the 2008.

In the meantime, I'm staying out of trouble and making a few shickles as a bailiff in the Irondequoit court system and working security at the Rochester Institute of Technology for one of my Irondequoit judges.
