It desperately needs a bath already here are the pictures as promised. I will get some of the interior when the weather cooperates a little better and I have some reading to do to learn how to take care of the King Ranch leather.

Looks pretty darn good to me! Ever had a V-plow before?

Thanks! It's been a while since I've owned one.

The reason I asked is that there's a lot more going on (and hanging off the front end) there, but most folks would never go back to a straight blade after using one. And the Boss V's seem to be pretty nice. Have fun!

Looking good. 

That blade looks a lot wider than 9-2 in that picture with both sides pulled back.

That is definitely going to deliver the mail without question.

I took an evenlyn read over the thread but did not see it.  How bad is the paint ?

The dealer pictures are overcast, so it could be good from far - far from good.

I noticed, is that the reflection of the same plow in the dealer picture ?

Thanks Steve! The paint needs some TLC but isn't too bad when I looked at it in the sun in Tuesday when I picked it up. I thought my 6.0 was quick but this truck is even quicker and it does outweigh my last truck by about a thousand pounds without the plow. It's a really big plow with the wings pulled back in the V position it measures 99 inches wide.

Sounds like you made a great purchase. 

Engine mods already done, it had the plow frame on it and the paint is not bad. 
- by normal non-OCD standard it might be considered great..we have a bad sickness.

Is anything hooked up to the upfitter switches ?
- I forget which ones are just switches and which ones have replays on them...

The seats look pretty good condition, hard to tell if that is dirt on the console lid, or jsut worn smooth.

Either way should be easy to clean, and with it being the lid you can remove it and clean it on the bench as not to make a mess out of the dash with fling off.

Dang, that plow is impressive! You'll be prepared for what's coming next winter for sure!

What an awesome truck, I'm sure you'll be hanging onto that one for a while!

Do you have to keep any log books or anything for DOT?

I was actually looking a little the other night.  I'd really like something more than a half ton.  I want a bigger bed.  Half ton, crew cabs only half the 5'8" bed or whatever.  Everything seems to be outrageously priced.  There are 2008s from the big 3 all going for low to mid $40k.

If you go back to Ford, you can get the F150 in a crew cab and 6.5ft box. They aren't very common though. My buddy just got a great deal on a new 2016 Platinum. It's a full load crew with the long box and max tow. a little better than $20k off MSRP.

He now hooked on the ecoboost too, lol.
