What do you like about 2017 SuperDuty

I like the door handles. Working outside on slopes, in wind, in mud, or otherwise, I like having a handle on the door to hang on to. Handles are good to keep my balance. And they're good to keep a grip on the door so it doesn't fly open or forcefully slam shut.

Cons ----- New dually fender design ABSOLUTELY sucks big time. Still no locking fuel door or caps. I heard they were raising dually bed height and that would be a terrible thing. Price.

Pros ----- Larger fuel capacity options. Larger cab room. Bigger towing numbers.

Dually fenders are better. Still like the 99-10 but these are a nice change from from the "bubble" flares. Like the looks of the cab and supposedly extra length, but haven't actually sat in one (or the new 150) to see if there really is a difference. I like that it's a bit taller, my dually is an inch or so low but don't want to mess with changing blocks and getting it out of factory specs. Seen in in person and the thing just looks like a beast - in a good way! Only thing I'm not sure of is the light blue led that lights up around the headlight. I like a little more subtly glow. Also wish they would have left the mirror corners squared off like current.

Oh, and hate the fact I can't already buy one!

I wasn't too sure about the new dually fenders. But, after giving them time to grow on me, they have. Me thinks I like the new look.

Also, the new design might just be sturdier. The "bubble" style of the current generation probably is not as stiff as the new design. From an engineering side the new style, with its squared section, is probably more rigid.

Some good info there, but I believe it's actually going to hit late 3rd quarter. At least that's what my fleet guys saying well realistically see them.

As far as ordering, can anyone confirm if inventory (stock) orders ship first? I was told that usually was a case and he could order mine that way to get it quicker (instead of an ordered unit) but then I wouldn't have price protection.

First, DO NOT buy a stock order. Stock orders are built first and built only until they have had 5 days of builds without an issue. If they find an issue, the 5 day rule starts all over again. So if they find an issue on day 4, the 5 day starts over again which means 9 days worth of trucks built first for stock.

The problem with this is that once they find the issue and work in a fix, all the trucks built have to be either be fixed outside the assembly plant or rerun through the plant to have fixed.

Customer orders only begin to be built after the 5 day rule has been completed.

This is HUGE when it comes to not only a new model year but a all new redesign. DO NOT buy a stock order..

Second, rebates are going to be very minimal so there is no reason to be concerned about price protection either way. You will most likely see a $500-$1,000 rebate and that's all.. no real reason to be concerned about it getting worse because at $500-$1,000, it really won't get lower. The true invoice is always locked in once the order is placed (dealer receives DORA the next day and price is locked) either way so the only thing you are gambling on are the rebates (again, minimal).

blwnsmoke thanks for the info! I was leaning to just do a regular order since that's how I always do it and it works out well and that just convinced me!

100% agreed with shooter. If I want an F-150, I'd buy an F-150. Couldn't believe when I saw the thing up close.
