Dibs on white jeep! That looks a hell of a lot more comfortable than driving a brick.

Sorry, white jeep is getting a mild build so that when family or friends visit we can all go wheeling

Old man really wants my Chevy, so I might be shopping for new truck next year and that F-150 sure looks nice. But that payment, not so much. Hope you can get the power outlets on the lower trims, but realistically Ill probably be looking for a 10 speed Ecoboost.

I'm really interested in seeing how the power outlet stuff is optioned out. My gladiator had the option for an outlet in the bed, but it was only 400 watts...

7200 watts is going to be something...

I think the 7.2kW is only for the Hybrid 3.5, which I gotta imagine will be way out of my budget anyway, but looks like the 2kw option will be available for all trucks. Still way better than 400 watts, and hell of a lot better than the 250w Plug in my Silverado.

One of the used car salesmen we talked to claimed some relative used a 150 watt outlet for her curling iron

Re: Important

Kevin, my 2018 f150 ccsb w ecoboost is soon to be up for grabs, I bought brand new n put a lot of highway miles on it. Its clean and has a leveling kit w 20" rims n 33x12.50 as well as factory aluminum wheels w stock tires. I picked up a steal (literally it had been stolen) 2015 Escape w EcoBoost that is the twin to John's, so I'm going to put miles on it and get me an older truck for the few times I need to haul trailers or dirt bikes.

How do you like it? I hear the 10 speed transmission is pretty sweet. I love my 2016 with the 6 speed.

Re: Important

It has been quiet around here lately. Is everyone still surviving the Rona? Rumors are strong that our lovely governor is going to lock Michigan down again.
