Details
platinum grey, 2 tone (silver), max tow, Eco, power slider rear window with defrost, rev sensing and camera, grey cloth bench seating, all wrapped in the screw 6 1/2 foot box 157 wb f150.

I wanted to upgrade to the Sony sound but it would ave required a jump to the fx4 or Lariat and 6-8000 more added to the price.

I figured I could upgrade the speakers and add an amped compact sub for a lot less.

I just got mine Thursday. I ordered it April 17, so mine took 2 months, it went quick till the last two weeks. Then found out that it was sitting in a train car for a week waiting to be unloaded that's when I started getting impatient but when I got it all was good and the wait was well worth what I got!

2013 fx4 sterling grey super crew 157 WB luxury package 20" wheels

I meant sterling grey not platinum. I am going to miss the Tuxedo black with 2 tone. The family said I had to pick a different color. They poo pooed the Kodak brown and I have coworkers that recently bought silver and blue jeans metallic. The reds, white and green just aren't me! I was told 6-8 weeks when I ordered it. It has been a thought wait especially since I was asked if I could keep the miles down on the 2010 xlt while I waited (I owed the dealer one since they kept my trade value as quoted 6 months ago and quite a few miles ago) I hate driving the old envoy instead of my truck! It should be here soon and being out of state this week on vacation helps.

Getting mine to tow my sports car to/from the track.
Ordered it the last week of May, it's scheduled to be delivered the 1st week of July.

So this weekend, I drove my sports car to my last out of town event before getting my truck. About 4.5 hrs from home.
So far I've been pretty lucky with out of town events, haven't broken my car at the track and have always gotten home without incident.

.... but not this time. Drove the car hard for 2 days, 4 20 minute sessions per day. No issues.
On the way home, about 1.5 hours into my journey, with the A/C on and running around 70, the radiator develops a leak, temp gauge goes up and I pull it over. I limp back into the last town, stopping each time the temp goes up to let it cool down. Small town radiator shop can't fix it, takes a day to get a new one via the auto parts store.
Two days out of work.

Waiting on my ordered Ecoboost, and yes it's killing me.

I bet it's killing you worse. I at least have the 2010 and a spare car. Only missing work this week to vacation in Maine.

Ok I checked my work email and sure enough one from the dealer stating that the truck would be in early and is expected this week. I knew this would happen as Murphy's law likes to harass me occasionally. I am out of town all week on vacation so I can't get it until next week.

Well it arrived at the dealer yesterday but I won't be home until late Sunday night. The dealer did send a couple of pics and the sticker to my email for me so that will have to do.
