I'm happy with the depth of the bed - I can just store a Honda 3000 under the cover fine.

My sister has a similar truck and it is nice except for one thing. Ford made the bed sides very deep so it is tough to get anything out of the bed....... I think they did this so the cab doesn't look so high.

Hi, I want a roll up hard cover on it if I can find something that I like. Seems like there are so many different covers. Mine has the tail gate step; I wasn't sure if I wanted one, but this truck with most everything, and a few more things, had what I wanted.

Hi, I want to keep my Yamaha 2400 in the bed; Hope it will fit under the cover. It should, but I haven't had time to take measurements yet.

Hi, Thank You. I drove it home and then took my wife and dog for a nice drive in the country. Now it sits in my garage waiting to get it's 1,000 mile break in before towing with it. I will also have to re-do my hitch and might have to buy a new shank. We are going on a trip tomorrow and will be using my Lincoln.

Hi, to give you a better idea of what I bought, It is an XLT super crew cab, 5 1/2' bed. [145" WB] With eight options.

(1.) Equipment group 302A / Cloth Bucket seats.

(2.) 3.5 L Ecoboost V-6 Engine.

(3.) LT275/65R18 OWL ALL-TERRAIN.

(4.) 3.73 Electronic Lock RR Axle.

(5.) Off Road package / skid plates.

(6.) HID Headlamps.

(7.) Max Trailer Tow Package.

(8.) Tailgate step.

A few options, I could have done without, but I'm glad that I have them. Only one item that I wanted didn't come with this truck, but we can fix that. I wanted the spray on bed liner.

For what its worth, I installed a bakflip F1 on my 2012 F150 145" wheelbase. Recently we took a 3000 mile trip out west and encountered several thunderstorms. Everything stayed completely dry and it only weighs 60 lbs. Its light weight is why I made the choice.

Was your F150 on the lot or did you order it with those specs? It didn't come in silver

Look into the Bedrug. My Tundra came with the plastic liner and I put a Bedrug just for the bed and it is great to be able to crawl into the bed without hurting my knees. I got the tailgate Bedrug too. They clean up well if you spill something on it.

Congrats! Just curious, what payload do u have on your truck?

Hi, I'll look into the back flip cover. My plan is to partially uncover the bed so I can run my generator while driving. On hot days, I want to run my air conditioner so I don't have another 103 degree trailer when we hit our next stop.

Hi, I wanted most of what I got; I wanted items numbers 1. 2. 3. 4. and 7. but I was happy to have the others too. This was a dealer purchase from a Ford dealer in Reno, Nevada. No trade, so my truck was trailered to Salem, Oregon and got there with 36 miles on it. My wife and I decided that we wanted Blue Jeans first and Ingot Silver second. But for the seemingly rare combination that I wanted, they found a Oxford White one. [same color as my Lincoln] Wife's car is white too. So you can see why we tried to get the Blue or Silver.

Hi, This gets a bit tricky for some people and I educated my sales person on this topic. The Ford book and on line build your own truck, for my combination, came out to 1,900 lbs. But certain options add some weight and are therefore subtracted from the 1,900 lb starting point. The "Off Road Package" adds steel skid plates and the "LT" tires probably weigh more than the standard "P" rated tires, so my payload was reduced by 155 lbs. [1745 lbs]
