Thanks for the pics. I don't know what's not to like about the new interior? I think it looks great! Of course I'm buying an 05 so I'm probably a little biased.

Are we looking at the same dash? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Sorry, from the posted picture I'm not impressed at all. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vomit.gif

Have to agree with princess.. I was toying with the idea of ordering an 05, might wait to look at it in person now that I've seen the new interior.

Is there a way to order leather without the Lariat package? Maybe the King Ranch will have a different dash insert. Can't have cloth seats and a dog, just doesn't seem to work..

I did not like all the black used in the Lariet. The wood was OK. I liked the darker brown/tan combo used in the earlier models. That truck was a 4x2 and did not have the switch option. I also found out that Ford discontinued the plush velvet cloth on the XLT and went with the woven nylon cloth crap used in the 04 F150's.

As I understand it, the auxiliary switches are an option, called 'upfitter switches'.

I would agree with you if they used wood, but they don't.
They use el cheapo plastic lookalikes instead.

Will Ford still offer the snow plow package?

How will that work on the coil springs? Just a stiffer spring rate?

I like the overall looks of the interior on the 05, but I agree they need to use real wood instead of plastic. And I am as curious as anybody to know how well the coil overs will do/ hold up compared to the front leafs. Chris

This is not the first time ford has stuffed coils on an f-350. One of my cab and chassis has coil fronts on an f-350 stroke. I believe its just the first time they did it with a 4x4.

I read somewhere that Ford will now offer the snow plow package on all models, where before you could only get it on certain models. I think you could not get it on a Crew Cab before, but you can now.
