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.
As to the questions you have concerning whether you are missing some options, you are not. Every SD I've sen regardless of package comes with the console shifter and as far as the AMP steps, I have spoken with a few Platinum SD owners and you have to have the dealer put the AMP steps on, otherwise you do not get them. Not sure if you already found this out but I figured I would point it out.

Now Sultan, you have been here long enough to read the words, "pics or it didn't happen.

Congratulations on the new ride. I hope you stay around as we will certainly suffer without your great wisdom, and I have no idea who will pick up the great WeatherTech gauntlet.

They gave me 25500 for my loaded lariat that booked at 32000 retail 6 months ago. I haven't checked lately so I'm not sure how much I got screwed but you will never get blue book retail price out of a dealer. Got 6000k+extras to remove and sell privately. That's retail price so I won't get that much out of them. Sticker was 67, 523 on the 350. Was gonna get a 250 but they said the price was only 700 difference so I said F it got a 350. I negotiated for hours and hemmed and hawed and that's the best they would do. Started at offering me 22000 and I laughed at them.

I didn't do much research first, this was my first research run but the numbers worked good enough for me so I bought it. I could've probably got 28 pretty easy without my extras on a private sale for my 150 if I wanted to hassle with it. I also went from 3.9 to 1.9 interest rate.

The platinum F250/350 is the same as a loaded Lariat, but with a platinum tailgate, grille, steering wheel, "platinum" on the seats, chrome door handles and mirrors, diff wheels. Other than that, it's the loaded Lariat.

Post em up!

Yea I called the dealer and talked to a Ford salesman and figured it out. I bought it at a ford chevy toyota combined $45 and drive used car sale. Stoped at the ford dealer and no salesman were there, they were all at sale. Went there and a Toyota salesman cornered me. They had no SD at the sale, mostly used car sale, so we hopped in a f150 Tuscany and burned over to the ford dealer again and test drove the SD but of course the Toyota salesman didn't know **** about them. Bet he got a nice fast commission off a Platinum SD though, lol!
