2018 F450

Put the order in this afternoon. 2018 F-450 King Ranch. Dealer thinks it may be in January. Now the waiting begins. Gonna try to sell my existing truck privately.

Congrats! Mine is an early '17 and I have had no issues in 4500 miles. I do wish I had the USB chargers for the rear passengers instead of a cig lighter.

Not as classy as just lifting the door and seeing two ports there! I'm wondering if I can't just R&R with what I want??

One interesting option apparently new for 2018. I did a Build & Price for a 2017 F-450 and took it with me to make sure all I wanted was ordered. I was asked if I wanted, new for 2018, an extended running board option for duallies (2nd small running board on each side) in order to reach into the bed.
