Got some pics of the interior. Nice looking truck.Looking at the tracker statistics, it seems that regular cab 2021 orders are in the minority. I will put up a few pictures of my truck with hopes it will make any others feel less lonely. In a world flooded with crew cab trucks, I had to order mine after a long and fruitless search for 2020’s and even 2019’s. The majority had options that made no sense, or dealer add-ons that I wouldn’t have wanted even if they were free, like tinted windows (most of my driving is at night) or bed liner (I do a lot of work with metal and it just gets stuck on or gouges the liners) and I wanted the V-8 4X4 with 3.73 gears and 9.75 axle. The heavy duty payload package was hard to pass up, so I went with the 8’ bed and it still fits in my small driveway without any effort. It doesn’t look quite as long in person and in fact, I panicked for a moment thinking it was a short bed when I saw it from behind parked in the dealer’s back lot.
Unfortunately, Ford decided that several options aren’t available with the regular cab. I really wanted the LED headlights, 4A transfer case and sliding rear window. I would like to at least get the sliding window, then hopefully some information about adding the OEM LEDs will appear and maybe some day, after the warranty expires, I will feel adventurous enough to swap out transfer cases.
Unloaded, the ride is stiff, though comfortable and on the highway it rides super smooth and quiet. The steering is almost too light and doesn’t have much feedback at low speed. The brakes feel good with a nice stiff pedal. I haven’t gotten any opportunity to use four wheel drive but hopefully will next week.
