So happy. I ordered my FX4 Ecoboost F-150 Crew Cab. Dealer said I might have it last week of June.
The only engine problems I have heard about are on the model year 11 and 12 trucks. It has been resolved on the 13's going forward. It really has only affected a small percentage of the trucks sold and in specific climate conditions. You should have nothing to worry about. Welcome to the forum BTW and I know what you mean about finding the Max Tow on the lots. There was only 1 truck in the whole state that had the max tow when I purchased. Personally, I love the dumbo mirrors. Yes, they are big, but they are extremely functional. I would venture to say they are the best mirrors I have had on any vehicle I have ever owned. Post up in the welcome area when you get a chance.I ordered the FX4 also without appearance package. I did order the max trailer package,which was impossible to find on the lots. I was told that the dumbo ear mirrors can be replaced with regular mirrors-i wanted the upgrade radiator etc. Also ordered 18" wheels...
Of course, 3 days after ordering, I read about the engine problems. Remind you, I have a first generation duramax that has two sets of injectors replaced....
4wd is always a nice option as a "just in case". I know mine is lifted and looks like a mud toy but I will tell you she is a street queen. Times out in deer season or whenever it's muddy in the pasture 4wd is always a good thing to have.Just curious as to why the FX4 as opposed to the FX2? Trying to figure out the difference myself.
