    They seem to be morphing into the same look as a F-150.

    Jury's still out for me, have to wait to see it in person. Curious how the aluminum cab and steel frame will react with dissimilar metals. I know on the fire trucks any spot we had steel and the aluminum touching we'd get corrosion. Lots of it, especially around hinges and mounting brackets.

    Doubt there will be an issue since the metals will be separated by a rubber body mount.

    I'm hoping this new frame & cab design will be more solid/stiffer than the outgoing model.

    I was thinking more along the lines of door and hood hinges, tailgate hardware etc.

    Since the hardware would be painted the likelihood of Alum and Steel having contact would be out of the picture.
    Fasteners would be an area of concern, the get around there would be Stainless fasteners ($$$$$) or using a anti seize type of compound.

    I don't see much of a change.

    Just a bunch of added chit that's just going to make them more expensive.

    I don't really like the grill but the rest of the truck looks good. I like the interior too, bet they'll want a million for it

    The best body style Ford ever made for trucks is in my avatar. It was my first truck and I wish I could get it back. Took the Fisher headgear off for the summer.

    Looks kinda funky to me. Have to see it in person to form an opinion.

    That would be my next choice. My old man currently has a 1973 F-250. In fact, it's his third one. He bought a brand new one in 1973 for like $3500. :dizzy:

    I love the looks of the interior! I really like the outside overall, the grille is the only thing that I am not sure of...

    In High School I drove a '70 Hi Boy, then bought a '77 Hi Boy in '79 and rolled it so I bought a '73 2wd, put the cab/front clip on the '77 and built a Flat bed for it. I drove that truck till '91.
