    You can just flip your camera to forward when pulling up close to stuff…works very much like backup camera.

    Exactly. If not for Corrí, our F250 7.3 Platti Tremor wouldn’t have been built we’re convinced. Ordered 16 June 2021, Corrí got involved late June/early July 2022 after being priority 2 for 6 months, built 18 August 2022, took delivery 30 September 2022…15 1/2 months from order to delivery.

    Price protection

    Ice, Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe truck is Invoiced when it enters Production. That said, Price Protection is from accepted order date. PS RFT2112, I think you meant ordered Dec 21

    I saw Ice’s multiple posts there as well. Don’t think he retired, just Ford took his access away.

    Price protection

    Take the truck, don’t let them mark it up…make them honor your Dora. Then file a complaint with Ford Marketing to get your price protection back to you, instead of to the dealership. My $.02.

    TX, At this point, I don’t see the purpose of contacting Ford Corporate..This weeks scheduling was for the week of 12/19 before KTP shuts down for Holiday break. Once they reopen after New Years, they start Job 1 on MY2023. And, I didn’t see anyone mentioning getting scheduled for that week. I’ve been watching for Ice-Capades on Production and Sales, and he didn’t say anything yet. I could be wrong, but I think his next post there will be about Balance Out…pretty much meaning MY22 SD is done. Sorry PS Just checked now and Ice has not updated post on Production and Sales since last Saturday…usually does it every week.

    Have you tried Ford Chat or contacted Ford Corporate Executive Office?…get Ford involved. Obtw, our F250 Platinum Tremor took 13 months to schedule, then build, 15 1/2 months to deliver…after 6 months Priority 2, then Ford Corporate intervention at 13 months to get Priority 1 to make it happen. If we didn’t get Ford Corporate involved, it would have never gotten built. Had it now for three weeks…love it. If you really want it, get involved to make it happen…dealership is of no help.

    Do you actually have a Build To date? If so, mine showed up the next day after that date.

    F250 Ride Quality

    Only thing to think though is AS was a consistent commodity constraint on 22’s, one of the main ones. Our F250 Platinum Tremor delivered at 15 months from order date, 15 1/2 months to pick up, and with Ford Corporate getting involved at one year to get Priority 1 to get built. That said, love the AS so far, cannot get after the fact, like tonneau or spray in liner. To add, Platinums and Limiteds were very rare 22 scheduling due to options/constraints, let alone a Platinum Tremor And, it’s been announced that Tremors will only be 5% of 23’s produced. So, think lower trim level if you want AS….or, just order what you want, like we did, expect a wait, then get Ford Corporate involved if it gets insanely long. Finally, if you didn’t know, all Tremors are F350’s, F250’s are just derated F350’s…same rear leaf pack. That said, our F250 Tremor is 83” tall at which garaging problematic. Airing down tires, you can get to 82.25” PS, An F250 Tremor gas with rated payload of 2600lbs, 10k gvwr, is the same as anF350 Tremor, 11.3k gvwr, with 3900lbs payload, just not legally.

    F250 Ride Quality

    Our 2012 F150 Platinum Screw without AS took about one full steering wheel rotation for 90degree turn at low speed. Our 22 Platinum Tremor with AS takes about 1/2 turn of wheel to make same 90degree low speed turn…or, so it seems.

    Our 2012 F150 6.2l v8 had 3.73 gears for max-tow. Would normally get 12mpg around town, 16-ish mpg highway, and 9mpg towing our 8500lb travel trailer. Your F250 6.2l isn’t doing bad, considering it’s easily 1k pounds heavier than our 6250lb F150. That said, hoping our 7400lb Platti Tremor makes our TT tow like it’s not there, and hoping for 8mpg towing. Also, rpm’s between 6.2l with 3.73 gears and 6-speed, and 7.3l with 4.3 gears and 10-speed are very similar on the highway.

    So, our F250 Platinum Tremor, 7.3l gas went into production on 8/18, built 8/19, shipped 8/20, but sat at ramp 8P Shelbyville for about 3 weeks. Arrived at Petersburg Virginia 9/21, then dealership Charlottesville Virginia on 9/23, so just over a month after built. Drove down from northern Virginia next day, and went back down and drove it home yesterday, 9/30. Hope you get similar or soon.

    Drove our 2012 F150 max-tow with 6.2l v8 down to get new truck, got 17.2mpg. New truck, 7.3l v8 got 14.3mpg on return trip…not unhappy with that being a brand new truck.
