After months of waiting, my 2014 F350 dually chassicab has a delivery date of around the end of August.
Then it goes off to the aftermarket truck body dude for a week or two to install the stake body.
I do remember the longggg wait for factory ordered trucks, it was painful. My 99 was my first and the toughest, after that at least I was already driving one while waiting.... Some guys actually lose their mind during this process, I've heard of some guys finding out when it was arriving at the rail head (when shipped rail) and going their to see it being unloaded....that's hardcore, really hardcore..
Sounds like your only a few weeks away now.
I stopped by the place where the bed is going to be installed. Fortunately he has one in stock so I dont have to wait for that to be delivered. Now I just have to hand out money here and there for the next few weeks and all will be fine.
The one thing I dont have yet for the carputer project is the touchscreen monitor. I have to much to do to fab one myself, so I will be looking for a drop-in, all ready to go into the dash monitor that will accept a backup camera input. Anyone have any suggestions?
well, here it is... day one... a long ways to go...
I touched it for about 1 minute, took a picture, paid for it, and the dealer drove it to the aftermarket body installer for me. I expect the stake body bed will be done late next week.
The stake bed being put on is all aluminum.
I will be making the sides myself out of 1.5 x 3" aluminum channel for the uprights and "Trex" composite lumber for the horizontals.
Wheel covers will certainly come, but right now the check book is a bit on the light side ;-)
Very Nice!! I love black.
I ordered this with the "mini console" option. A mini console means nice cloth covered bucket seats with a $2 coffee cup holder screwed to the transmission hump between the seats. The sales guy had never seen or even heard of said option before. I had to show him on the Ford web site that such an option actually existed.
When most people look at it, I can see why it would not be a hot seller. Why the hell would someone put together what will ultimately be a close to $50K truck with suck a lame center console? Of course, the way I look at it, I take out two sheet metal screws and remove the "mini console" and I now have about a 12" wide by 4 foot long space to work with.
At first I was thinking of hiding the computer under the passenger seat but now that I have seen the room that I have to work with I do believe it is going inside a custom console. I think I can still screw the $2 coffee cup holder on top of said console and still have a place to put my coffee.
