Yesterday, I drove a 17 hour round trip to get my brand new F-150 FX4 ECOBOOST off of the transport boat here in Germany.
Let me tell you it was well worth it!
When I saw her for the first time I felt like a little boy again, as happy as could be!
For now she is a Stock FX4 with Appearance Package and every option i could put on her.
I also got the extended warranty, so she will be staying that way for awhile but im going to add little stuff here and there.
Either way she is Beautiful and I love it

Here are a couple pictures to start out with, there will be plenty more to come.

Nice! That ought to be loads of fun on the autobahn! These trucks cruise real well and take off all on their own...

Love the plate in the window!

The Autobahn isnt as cracked up as its thought to be.
Alot of people think its like a unlimited speed race track for days.
There are only certain areas were you can go as fast as you want.
And then without warning when your doing 200 clicks it changes to 130 clicks with a speed trap.
Plus construction is every 50 miles or so and they make 2 new lanes on a road that can only hold 1 car at most.
And the speed limit those areas is 60 clicks about 35mph for many miles.

Also my truck is the size of their tractor trail trucks, i get alot of funny looks from the Germans but its all good

I figured it wasn't. You can have a little fun, on occasion.

Usually if you exceed that speed on some of the super duties it throws them into limp mode...that's the really lame part.

Please tell me that the plate in the 13rd pic is real!

Glad you finally got your truck!

Enjoy it!

What part of Deutschland are you in? I spent 2 years at Coleman Barracks in Mannheim back in the early 90's.

My buddies and I used to go into Frankfurt once a while, It's amazing the things you can buy.

Cruising speed on the Autobahn today maxed out at 100mph, I need the governor removed.
Any way to do that without voiding the warranty?
