Great looking truck and truck/boat combo! One of the guys that works for me bought a new 2008 like yours....loaded. He told me that he took it in for a service last week, sat in the 2009 and almost traded in his 4,500 mile 2008 as the 2009's are pretty impressive! Congratulations!

Thanks for the compliments. I must admit, it is a very nice upgrade over previous models. I fell in love with the 2009 at the Frankfurt Auto show last January and have just been waiting for the right moment to grab one. The $4500 rebate from Ford helped lubricate the deal. The real selling point for me was being able to get the 6.5 ft. bed on the Supercrew. I just hated those skimpy 5.5 footers. I couldn't believe how easy it was to hitch up last night with the back-up camera! No more spotters needed.

Killer truck. I just sold our Explorer so my wife could have a car again. Part of the deal was that I could buy a truck this spring. Unfortunately I won't be able to do "new". I hope to find a nice 07 - 08 F150 Super Crew but doubt it'll be as sweet as yours. I'll be a good start though!

cover

love those boat covers! assuming they came with your boat.? Do you know if they are available for a 2000 Maristar? Also, for a couple of weeks during the summer, my boat is tied to a dock and i would like to cover at night. Any suggestions for a cover for that application. I am assuming the one in the photos is a travel cover only.??

The cover came with the boat. I only use it when the boat is at our dock on the lift or when I pull it to put in the storage shed for the winter. While the cover works very well for keeping the boat clean, it is not a good idea to travel long distances @ HWY speed---I have heard stories of the cover rubbing the gel coat.

I just picked up my new tow rig last week. 2010 Range Rover Sport Supercharged, 510hp. So much fun to drive, but no tow package is out for it yet Hopefully soon, going to need to get out once or twice before it gets too cold.
