I didn't pay attention before. But it's an F-450 that would explain the $100,000. Not that it's still not ridiculous! But a decked out F-350 is $85,000.

I don't know....those dually fender flares are hideous. The shape of the headlights could use some work as well. But I just can't stand the fender flares. Fugly!

I do like some of the features - LED lights, retractable steps, rear vented AC, and keyless fob.

I kinda like the rear fenders. Combined the square and the round.

Agree, Fugly. There is no way in hell I would pay that much for a truck, especially a fugly ford.

I agree! Obviously it's subjective, but I feel like the new Super Duty's in general are the best looking of the HD pickup market. I just wasn't willing to take a risk on the reliability of the 6.7 Power Stroke. If they get that stigma off their back, I might jump ship one of these days...but it won't be optioned to $100k!

My buddy had the F150 platinum and the first thing to break were those slick retractable steps. Just saying

Couldn't agree more. I looked at a truck similar to mine only new, sticker was 52k. Sorry I'll keep mine which is 99% the same only a few years older that I got with 22k miles on it for less than $20k.

We have the retractable steps on the wife's Escalade for years and really like them. Never had any issues with them. I would buy them again.
Our friend's neighbor has them on his truck and has had issues with his but they live down a long gravel road which beats on the steps everyday. If that were the case for us I wouldn't purchase them.
