    The little luxuries are nice if you plan on spending a lot of time in it.

    If your planing on adding to your fleet in 2years and making that an employee truck I probably would not bother with the xlt it's going to come with a radio ,ac,auto you can power stuff. Best way to do it is go on the ford site and build one an xl and one xlt to see price and package difference . Sometimes it's cheaper to get xlt than to add stuff to the xl.

    I'd go XLT, the heated mirrors, power options, a better seat, and a few other little extras can make 24+ hours in the truck not so bad compared to miserable when mirrors keep freezing up, seat sucks, interior has as many options at a Model T had paint colors, etc.

    Def get it loaded especially if you are going to use it yourself daily. I did and don't regret it one bit.

    A shovel is as well. But you would have to buy a good one

    are those snow plow shovels any good I was thinking of getting one of them. They're expensive though
