    Has everybody seen the new Ford Super Duty????? How awesome! Oh, and did you see the new Chevy laughing stock? How wussy, it's like the Tahoe and Suburban.

    I can't wait to try the new 6.4L Power Stroke Diesel.

    I don't much care for the headlights but I think they may grow on me after a while, but I can't say I really like the interior. It looks too much like an F150. Other than this, looks to be a good truck.

    I'd wait a couple years before buying one with the new Diesel.

    I think they look pretty good. Much better than GM, but I am not sure if they are going to look better than Dodge. I with sbrennan007 on the headlights and interior, but I guess they'll grow on me. That new 6.4L has twin turbos right? When I get rid of my truck in a few years I might spring for one of those after I see how well they work out.

    No slams from TNT yet? Amazing.

    I think the headlights are butt ugly and a few of the other changes, but what do you do. They left absolutely no room under the hood for anything like central hydraulics either. Or even enough room to work on the engine for that matter.

    Yeah I am not to impressed with the headlights either. i love my 2003 F350, but instead of going to that 6.4L i wish they would just go back to the 7.3L. Just my thought.
    Hope you guys have a good season!

    Now you're the funny guy, but looks aren't everything. :p

    I guess I should rephrase, I hate to have a $400 labor bill for changing out the $25 serpentine belt.

    I hate the interior, don't care for how they overturned the tail lights, and have mixed emotions about the headlights. And JAY BROWN, I love my 1974 IHC 1 ton dually 4x4, but nobody makes one like that anymore. The International Harvester company has changed to the International Navistar company, and althought they make a pretty good product, they are now a class 8 manf. that is just playing around making that "Pickup". And at least the Ford truck has the Intl Engine!

    Work under the hood?
    Like I tell my wife, Fords don't break ! their just being towed in for adjustment !
    People think I am nuts when I say International made a pickup truck.
    One of my Uncles had a brand new 74 International 4X4 Pickup.
    I can remember the truck hub deep in mud just flinging it everywhere. Then the front ring and pinion gave out. Dad just hooked up his 73 F-350 and pulled him out after much digging.

    Lol. You mean an IH like this one? It was my dad's first pickup, I think it was a '68. The other is a Toyota land Cruiser. I can still remember riding along with him and plowing in the IH's. Tough little trucks.
