    Was at the NAIAS last week and took some close up pics of the new 2011 King Ranch. This was a Diesel model, you can see close up pics of the new diesel in my other post.

    Note the UREA filling cap, the guy who desigend the new Diesel said the truck holds 5 gallons, it sells for about $2.00 a gallon and will last about 10,000 miles, so not bad.

    He said the only problem they are having now is deciding what to do if you don't refil the tank. The truck will run now without it but it's a big violation of Mr. EPA. He did tell me there will be a warning when you have 50 miles worth of UREA left, after that they are still deciding. Large SEMI's going forward will completely shut off if the UREA tank is not filled.

    He said Ford will not do this, but needs to come up with something.

    Check out the lit running boards, pretty sweet, also the leather seems heavier than previous....center concole is a nice improvement as well, IMO

    Some more....You can see where you fill the UREA, they also added Locking Fuel caps as standard equip this year. I know it's going to be a while before you can get a Chrome Filler Cover, not sure how a square one would look anyway..

    They can keep it. Looks terribly expensive, and the EPA has ruined people from wanting a diesel I know I dont want one now.

    I like the 08-10 style better- never thought I'd say that. I think if you run out of UREA you can just pee in there couldn't you?

    No ammonia is a compound made of nitrogen and hydrogen, urea is a compound made of amine and carbonyl.

    So can you pee in the tank or no?

    No lol. It is a liquid solution of urea and de-ionized water. Supposedly it cuts down on the ammount of polutants coming out of the exaust.

    That Dewalt truck is ridiculous in a awesome way. Thats my next new truck (2011 F350 diesel srw xlt). I was going to get a left over 2010 but I like the new changes. I still think Ford stole an idea from me,lol. One cond place we do has a owner and his daughter is an engineer for Ford and I gave him the idea for heated convec mirrors instead of just heating the top mirror and 3 years later its standard! They could at least give me a new truck for the great idea :D

    Next time patent your idea and you'll get paid.

    Sounds stupid but when I was in 8th grade I remember telling my dad that I wanted to invent lights that would turn with the steering wheel of the car- so if you turned right, the lights would angle right so you could see around a turn. He still remembers it to this day since I always slam my head against the wall when I see the new Lexus commercials showing all of their Cars with headlights that turn...Could've been a millionare.

    Not to add insult to injury, but the new Lincoln's have them too! But don't kick yourself too hard because drawing up a patent can be a long and difficult process. Unless you have every "I" dotted and "T" crossed it is very easy for someone to get around your patent. A lot of the times that is why you see the same technology on different companies products...not because it was purchased but because they found a loop-hole.
