I personally think the B&W turnover ball is a better choice than the Ford installed Gooseneck. Look at both and decide which hitch you like better. I would get the Spray in liner done after the hitch is installed. So if you get the B&W done after you take deliver, wait on the spray in till the hitch is in.
3:55 axle is great. Get the Electronic locking.
I just turned 100,000 miles and have not used my warranty ( other than a couple minor things at 35,000 miles) They don't offer a extended warranty that will cover you for 400,000 miles. In fact most are only 125,000. Yes it's expensive to fix these trucks. But I'm still gambling on a extended warranty probably not helping me out. I've owned a 7.3L, two 6.0L and now this 6.7L and I would have lost money any extended warranty if I had purchased them.
I hate the sunroof. Good choice to slip.
I do like my navigation, I use it all the time. The in dash navigation gives you a larger screen for your back up camera. If you don't have the in-dash Nav, The back up camera displays in a small square of your mirror. I much prefer the camera in the 8" in dash screen ( at least on the 2011, Maybe the '14s are different). A few times camping or while waiting to pick up my daughters, I've dropped a DVD in and watched a movie. So it's more than just finding an address. Elevation, where am, nearest cross street etc.
I do like my tail gate step. Never use the stripper pole. But I'm in and out of my bed almost daily getting construction tools out and putting them away. I would do as suggested above, Get the step and remove the pole after you get it.
If you are not hauling a camper, Don't mess with the camper package.
I definitely prefer the Long bed with the larger fuel tank. The short bed with a 26 gallon tank would drive me crazy.
I like the captains chairs with the Center console. Lots of storage.
After market tires are cheaper in 18" wheel sizes. And most bigger tires in the 20" wheel size need a wider wheel than the 8" factory OEM wheels. So if you are going to switch out tires, skimp on the factory wheels and put the money toward the wheels you want. If you are keeping the factory wheels, I like the 20" cast aluminum wheels. Not a fan of the Chrome wheels or Chrome package.
Get the F350 Unless you are in state that penalizes you on taxes for owning a 1 ton truck.
Upfitter switches are cheap and make it nice for anything you add.
Get the Supplimental Heat to help warm up your cab on cold mornings. Unless you are in a part of Texas that just never gets cold.
Congrates and enjoy
