Picked this up last weekend, Shelby has a new stable mate. I feel bad since I haven't driven the Shelby all week now that I have the brown beast.

Not sure how I went the last 5-6 without one. Won't go without again.

Congrats.

Nice looking truck!! I thought it was black till I reread your post but I really like the dark brown too. I kind of regret not ordering black... Here is my daily driver. I've had three diesels in a row and decided to go gas this time and love it. Got the 4.30 gears and you can't hardly leave a stop light without squeeling rubber.

Never been a truck guy... I own a truck mind you. But I only drive it for absolute necessity/utility as-needed. As such, my trucks last me decades instead of years. But beyond that, I've never understood the "big/bad/tall" mystique. All I get is "fat/clumsy/slow". ;) That would explain why my Lightning was my favorite truck I ever owned I suppose. ;)

But if you're going to have a truck, that's a DAMN FINE LOOKING example! Glad you like it, and congrats..

Thanks guys I like it so far but it's only been a week. My wife just gave me the "STOP SPENDING" on it last night since I hit the 5k mark. The UPS guys dropped a ton of stuff today so I'll be bolting on all weekend

I went in to get same size as stock mudders and walked out with used Fuel wheels(look new), 35in mudders, & 2 inch level kit. Oh well some habits don't change!

Great looking truck.

I thought it was black too. Must be a very dark brown. What do they call it?

I love Ford trucks, haven't been without one for 45 years.

It's Kodiak Brown, it's a dark metallic brown, looks blck at night and Brown in the sun. You can also look at different angles in the sun and it gets darker, it's a cool color.

Is that a jack in the first picture? Did you jack up the rear to take a pic?
Yes it's a jack, I want the back end up a little higher so was just figuring out to much. It wasn't used to take the pic.

Killer looking truck. Excellent addition to the stable. I've seen that brown in person and pics just don't do it justice.
