$7k is not too bad. I hope I'll be able to get a somewhat comparable discount. How long is your wait time about? 2 month?
I ordered mine first week of December, its built now and in transit and should be delivered in the next week or two. The folks that ordered before the plant holiday shutdown cost us 2-3 weeks, so 2 to 2-1/2 months seem about right.

The main reason I went with the XLT over the XL was the 8" Nav/Sync 3 screen. I have so many mods planed I didn't want to take on even more. The base 4" sync screen in the center stack to me looks really cheap. My current daily driver is a older BMW 550xi but still has a ton of technology I'm used to. The rebates were better to on a XLT which bought the price closer together.

I hate all the chrome on the XLT though so that going to be gone fast. There is a trick to ordering a XLT and get painted bumpers. You must order two tone paint, which I didn't want.

With these vibrations I won't be able to sell it privately, and trading it in will cost me at least $5k.

What are your plans? Anything Ford?

I bought a 2018 F-150 Limited 4x4 to replace the Tahoe.

In a C7 Corvette you can turn cylinder deactivation off my going into the track mode.

I'm not a fan of cylinder deactivation at all. It puts more stress on the engine and lowers the life expectancy.

PS: I know Nicko McBrain, he lives in Boca and owns a great BBQ restaurant.
ahh, I missed that it was a diesel. I just remember reading a lot about the "Chevy shake" on silverado forums when I was researching trucks and wondered if they were related.

I love Iron Maiden, finally got a chance to see them a couple years ago at Summer Fest in Milwaukee. Hottest freakin' day of the summer it was like 97 when the show started that evening still. That's hot for WI and those guys rocked thru it like nothing. Everything is so tight and crisp in that band. Anyway, i'm not even a little jealous you have a personal connection with Nicko...
