Couple questions on the '17 / '18 F350's
I'm about 6 weeks out from ordering my truck and have a couple questions. I'll be getting an F350, 4x4, 6.7, CC, SB, Lariat Ultimate.
On the tow tech package, it includes the lane departure warning. I've heard this can be quite annoying when you don't actually want it to be on. Is this something that's easily turned off through the vehicle menus?
And for a gooseneck setup, am I better off getting the factory Ford setup or going aftermarket? I currently have a B&W turnover in my '01 and want the same functionality. But if it's simpler to just get the Ford factory setup I'll do that. I definitely want the 7-way plug in the bed, but it looks like I can get that through the camper package OR the 5th/goose prep package. If I go aftermarket on the hitch itself, I'm assuming I can skip the prep package?
Also will be looking to install a CB pretty quickly after getting the truck, and eventually a HAM. For the CB, I'll probably do the Cobra 75 and hide everything in the center console. Haven't been able to find many pics of CB or HAM installs in the newer trucks though and want it to be as clean as possible since this will be a DD as well.
EDIT TO ADD: Another thing I just thought of, do these trucks still use glow plugs? How does that work with the push button start?
