    i have driven two in the last month in a half or so and love them. want to pull the trigger so bad but right now im to upside down on the family war wagon. the FX4 with appearance package is so sweet. last i heard ford has up to 10k in rebates so maybe the closer we get to 2012 i can slide into a deal

    As an owner of one for a few months i think your really gonna like it. Mine is still fun to drive, although i,m still not getting the milleage they claim it should.
    I still have issues with heavy foot so that may be the problem ,but i have heard ,like many new vehichles there is a Breakin point ,that is actually holding the vehichles back from optimum milleage.... Still waiting.
    I have a service appointment this weekend , Slight vibration ... suspecting driveshaft,unbalanced so a new one is ordered, gotta ask about the milleage issue when i go. Forgot the last time in.

    As for the trailer screen on the dash , READ the book because it can and will do lots of things, i try not to mess around but i did notice when pulling another trailer once all kinds of sensors and a screen display came up . I did as little as possible trying not to mess things up.

    I really love this truck and i think you will too.There now are many upgrade packages out there to give more power and mileage, ive pretty much picked what i want, but want to wait till a little more warranty has expired as most are not Ford approved. Rousch which is approved , HAD a cold air box but has taken it off the market as they have/had some issues,so hopefully they get it figured out soon, then cat back exhaust from Rousch ,maybe and a tuner. Winter is apon us so i will wait till i can actually use the extra power... Anyways good luck . Keep us posted.
