Agate Black Platinum V8 at one of my local dealers. According to dealer, majority of plats come with max tow. This one was a blue sticker .. but a customer had already put a deposit on it weeks ago so I couldnt buy it :(

I have lurked here for a few months. Thanks for all the posts that helped me make some decisions. Anyways with the X-Plan I got a Black Lariat 502a with sports package. So far very happy with it and just playing with the radio. I hate chrome so finding the sports package was key. Next is tints and ceramic coating. Ask any questions

order timeframe:
Ordered 10/30/2020, arrived to dealer on 1/28/202 so about 3 months total and the dealer had me at priority 11 on retail order. It took 2 weeks from build date to arrival at dealer (Dearborn to NC).

Pricing:
I had A-plan price, so truck was 61.5k MSRP, A-plan was 55K, and had $2000 in rebates bringing it down to 53k ($1000 ford credit, $500 incentive, $500 military). Final OTD price was 55.7K with tax title fees everything (no trade-in, I sold my car private party for cash a week prior).

Initial impressions:
1. the red/brown lariat sport interior trim is much darker in person than in photos and online, initially I didn’t want it but now it has grown on me.
2. this is my first truck and it rides much smoother than I thought.
3. The 360 camera is extremely helpful when parking, I originally ordered a 2020 and decided not to get it, but since I switched to a 2021 and have it, I would have been disappointed without it.
4. This truck is SMART! Everything is so automated and intuitive, I’ve never driven anything this techy before.

what’s next:
1. Line-X
2. Ceramic window tint
3. Powder coat 18” sport wheels black
3. Wheel well liners, floor mats
4. Hard Bed cover
5. Extended warranty

regrets:
I got the tow tech package instead of trailer tow package to get the 360 camera included and save some money. Had I known this would max me out at 6,000lbs towing I wouldn’t have done it, I was hoping for the published 7700lbs towing. It will work for now but I am considering upgrading the front stabilizer bar in the future if I start towing near my limit. the payload is still pretty good at 1417 lbs shown in the door jam.

Questions:
1. Maybe I’m not doing it right, but I cannot for the life of me get the box link cleats in. I followed the directions and managed to get 1 of the 4 installed, but no matter how hard I pull up and wiggle it I cannot get any of the other in. Does anyone have experience with these getting stuck?

Lariat 502a Chrome Package leveled on 34s (Toyo OC ATIII 295/60-20)
Do you have any side shots of this truck? It’s looks beautiful. Just want to get a better idea of what the level looks like with those tires
