I done went and did it now! Good and bad day
 
Traded off the f150 on a 2013 f350 Platinum 6.7 diesel. There's a few options from the 150 I'll greatly miss, like the Capless fuel System and large Flat rear floor. Super duty has built in lockable boxes under the seats which is ok I guess because I built a box for under seats the 150 anyway. There isn't as much room for the backseat passengers as the 150 has but it's got heated rear seats that my 2010 f150 didn't have, but the 11+ f150s do too. Kind of an impulse buy and the 350 doesn't have a console shifter which I love in my 150, it still had a console though. I found myself grabbing my water bottle to try and shift gears, lol! 4 cup holders in front console. The shifter position change is gonna take some getting used to. Miss the compartment on top of the nav, not the top one on the dash, the one below it which is where I always put my phone. I have the samsung Galaxy note 2, to large fit cupholders. Gotta find a new spot now! Got about a week or as long as I want really to return my 150 to stock because they don't give you Jack for aftermarket parts so I'm glad I just spent 3 grand on rims and tires 3 months ago, lol! Just about had everything I wanted on my 150 and now none of it will fit on the new truck and I get to start over, lol! Ah #firstworldproblems I don't know near as much about super dutus as I do about 150s so I hope I got it loaded as loaded can be but the super duty platinum isn't as loaded as the 150 Platinum unless I screwed up. I thought a Platinum was a Platinum with all available options but the super duty doesn't have a console shifter, amp retractable steps or ambient lighting in the cupholders like the 150s have. Mine doesnt anyway, hope I just didn't pick a bad one! It's got power folding and power extending mirrors, power rear window and moonroof tailgate step and pretty much every other available option that I know about.

Congrats new vehicles are always good for morale

Yes indeed, thanks! Didn't take any pictures yet because it was dusty as hell, lol. I'll take delivery in about a week. Got a lot of work to do to return my 150 to stock. Will be selling lots of aftermarket parts here shortly.

Nah, I still love 150s and I sell the led door sills for them so I'll stick around. Might buy another one in 2-3 years when I get the f350 payed down a ways. Can't wait to see what the 2015s look like. Now I can get a bigger 5th wheel and a bigger boat and go through the mountains.

Besides, who's gonna tell the newcomers that weathertech floor mats suck if I leave? Haha!

You'll love it. My dad has a 250 6.7 Platinum. Aside from the recent issue, it's been a good truck... Quick too!
