Going to order a new truck, how does it look?

Been busy trying to navigate the Build Your Own.
This is what am ended up with, pls take a look, see if I missed something?
(is this the right axel ratio for mostly highway driving?)

Any dealers onboard who wants to handle the order? (Got X plan, Costco, True Car, etc.)

The tonnau cover I am not sure about yet. Does it help on gas mileage on the highway?

Forget the bed liner, floor mats, or other "accessories" for now use them as a bargaining tool when the dealer gets stuck on price. Most things, like a Tonneau cover, you can get better and pay less aftermarket. Except for the accessories and color you pretty much have the truck I just ordered. I'm planning to use it to tow a 7200# TT so I had definite requirements. If you are real lucky you might find one off the lot. I couldn't get one within 500 miles.

FWIW, I just traded in my 2016 SCAB for a new SCREW 4x4 6.5' bed pretty much equipped the way you want it. There's really good pricing in your area on units sitting on the dealer's lot.

My suggestion is to check Brandon Ford and Bartow Ford inventory. It maybe a case of having your cake and eating it too. You likely can get it cheaper than ordering the SCAB.

I have a very similar 2015 but with the 5.0. One thing I wish I had gotten was the tailgate step.

Yeah, I was in doubt on the tonneau cover, will delete it, but a spray-on bed is about $500 around here so I might as well let the factory do it. (Unless the dealer does it at a local contractor instead of a factory spray)

Yeah, good idea, will check their inventory, thx

Good idea, I may look at that again.
Why the 5.0? More gas but same power as the 3.5 eco?

36 month lease and only allowing 10,500 miles. I hope that is annually, which still isn't a lot.

This thread is not about leasing, I am buying.
Did you lease a similar truck, is that what you are saying?

I also wanted a snow plow and the only engine option that Ford allows a plow on is the 5.0. Otherwise I may have ended up with a 2.7 or 3.5.
