Somebody mentioned Brandon and Bartow. My suggestion is Brandon Ford if in the Tampa market. I was looking for almost a year and found them to have the best selection and prices.

Ended up finding a '15 ini bronze fire metallicm with only 13000 miles and most options offered and a very reasonable price down here at a Fort Myers Dodge dealer.

The factory bed liner doesn't seal the seams up like linex does. If you put a cover on it, and want to keep things dry in the box, it may be a concern.

Ok, good advise.
Nothing to keep dry in the bed or box anyways.
Will use this baby for a grocery getter, x-country truck and occasionally haul a boat.
Worked all my life as an airline pilot, sick and tired of airports and crowded planes, would rather drive.
Does anybody know if the tonneau cover improves mileage and if the above axle is the best for highway driving?

Looked at Brandon Ford for a Super Cab with the 4-wheel drive and 3.5 Eco: No cigar. Looks like I have to order, Plantation Ford will give me the numbers tomorrow. (Without the tonneau cover)

That is what I had them do. A Line-x bedliner seals better, has a better warranty and if it needs to be fixed is less an ordeal.

There are aftermarket steps that work better. I saw one at Cabela's I liked.

Don't see anything on that combo that you shouldn't be able to find on the lot. A couple of things I have that you don't drove me to order like Trailer tow mirrors, 36 gallon tank.

Good point on the tank. Is that a stand alone order?
Donít need the towing mirrors however.
