Well... this cat.... worked a **** load of 18 hour days for a couple weeks. Then after finally pushing the project out the door last Tuesday, I took Wednesday thru Friday off, hooked up the trailer to the new truck, and went camping until this AM. Once I dropped the trailer in the driveway this AM I spent the whole day getting ready for hurricane Sandy since I'm right in the main path.
In between I managed to work a deal for a new 2012 SCrew XLT 4WD, Candy Apple Red Metallic w/Silver, 3.55 axle and tow package and the EcoBoost engine.
I opted not to get the max tow package because all the tow ratings with my trailer are well within safe limits. On top of that I'm looking to go to a LIGHTER trailer in the next year or so.
I did all my negotiating over the internet and had three dealers involved. It made it easy to work a deal while working those long days. The dealer I eventually boought from gave me a nice fair deal and it was the best car/truck buying experience I've ever had BUT I had all my numbers for trade and new truck lined up and ready to go.
I only pulled a very short distance this weekend but the Ecoboost was a huge step up comparedd to my old truck.
