  • Keith's new 2022 F350 KR

    As of today I no longer have the OH! OH! 6.0 I traded it in on a new 2022 King Ranch order - F350 CC Long Bed SRW. Should be here in 6 to 10 weeks. Ordered 6.7, 3.55 gears, up fitter switches, instant cab heat (gets 397 amp alternator), block heater, 5th wheel prep, 12400 GVW package, GN hitch kit, skid plates, LED Headlamps, bed step, wheel well liners F/R, all in Star White. I did get x plan pricing - first one this year for dealer.

    So I should be all set for my trip to Alaska - I just need to find out the mileage they want before towing - or does it matter with the new 6.7 engines?

    Now to watch for sales for the add on's - bed mat, Retrax cover. mud flaps. possible in bed aux fuel tank, etc.

    And its all Rob's fault Cate&Rob

      Oh boy oh boy, I want one too.

      I have been watching the retrax bed covers, a little pricey but man are they nice. The "add ons" seem to add up very quickly.

      Congrats, will be watching for a full report.

        I have had the Retrax poly version on my 04. It did very well, including holding up 2' of snow. They no longer make the poly for the 8' bed so need to go with the aluminum slat one. The one thing I like it is can be locked in any open position. Other brands don't offer that feature). I could tuck it up right against the hitch, lock it, and still keep things safe in the bed. You can also get it with the bed stake pockets cut out so you can use them. Others don't offer that either. Dealer get real competitive around the holidays with up to several hundred off and more 20% +.


        Thanks you two
        Keith

        BTW - It will be my first truck with the navigation screen so I wont need to rely on SWMBO map/sign reading skills . But I will give her credit - she was all in on getting this.

          Hi Keith,

          Great truck. My F-250 was 1,000 miles before towing -- likely the same for you. An automotive engineer on another list claimed it was to condition the rear axle, rather than the engine.

          Best,

            Congrats. I love my 6.7 F350. They want 1000 miles before towing. Of course lots of folks will say 100 different things, but I like following manuals (they're there for a reason) and the manual on my 2021 6.7 says 1000 so that's what I did.

            Make sure you get your heap-o-Ford-Pass points good toward a few of the pricey oil changes.

                  Yoda Keith, some will tell you to hook up in the parking lot when you pick it up and never look back, others will say what the manual says. Every MFG has a different recommendation, following the manual at minimum is the best advice. If you can hear the rear gears (new trucks are so quiet it's almost impossible) as they wear in the noise level decreases this is an indication of polishing of the mating surfaces allowing the oil to do it's job.

                  Enjoy the new truck.

                    Keith, congratulations on the new truck! We have got a new F350 on order as well but after 3 weeks have no idea when we will see it. I am hoping we have it by next summer. According to what I see on line, we may have wait up to 30 weeks for the build plus delivery. I hope I am wrong as having our new trailer sit in our storage lot is frustrating.😥

                      Double check with your dealer/ Mime said 6 to 8 weeks, maybe 10. They have had several orders come in in 6 weeks and several at 7. They say it is just the luck of the draw. Evidently they build them in batches based on trim and options, but I could be wrong on that. They evidently have the chip issue under control now. Have they given you your vin yet? It is at that point you can actually track it in production on several of the ford folks web sites.

                        Folks I appreciate the kind thoughts,, but the credit goes to DW for her great ability to save. If not for her being frugal we would not be able to afford this.
                        Thanks again

                          Congratulations on the new truck. It'll make Wolf Creek Pass an easy pull. If you got the larger fuel tank with the long box, you'll like the range.
                          I did 1000 miles pre-tow.

                            With the long bed crew cab I believe I get the 48 gallon fuel cell. I am hoping mileage is good enough I don't need an aux tank and just carrying my 2 - 5 gallon jugs will be enough for Alaska. In reading the mile post book it looks like I should be fine. Good news it is now mostly paved. Back in 69 when Dad took us it was mostly gravel.

                            On thing new to me is the DEF fluid - need to read up on whats good and what to stay away from. I understand it has a short shelf life and does not like high temperatures.

                            And then there will be all the electronics and menus screens to set up. On thing my dealer does do is a very through PDI to go through everything. When we bought my DW Escape it took almost 1 hour for her and the guru to go through and set everything for her, including paring her phone. Probably take me longer All this will be new to me as when I drive DW escape I have her push the buttons to change things.

                              I just keep using the blue def.

                              I learned to select the security sensors to exterior only when I turn the engine off when I have my dog with me before I exit the truck. Her motion sets off the interior alarm sensors if I don't.
