Why do you say that? I'm not happy about the aluminum that's in the 2017s.
But I think the interior is a HUGE improvement over the 2016s.

I do like the front end design of the 2016 better as well, but the 2017 will grow on me after some of the custom companies catch up with grilles and bumpers.

Not to mention the short box crew wheelbase is 160 now not 156 it is longer as well. I loved the truck BUT I would not want to drive it around town everyday!
Is the CC/LB model longer as well?

Yes I believe it is 176 up from 172 on a longbox. Folks are going to be surprised how big these things are.

I agree with ya on the Dodge look but this one i think they went backwards on!....to me it looks like they took the square style fender of the 80's trucks and slapped a fender flare on it...they could have done better.....

I agree. I hate the 2017 Ford dually fender. I'm partial to my early 2000s look, but I eventually came around the the "fender flare" look of the 2011 models. At least it matched the front fender in design. But this looks terrible.


If I get a new truck, I'm not getting a DRW anyhow.

I think the front clip looks snubby. Short. Compared to the rest of the truck. Rear fender on the dully has me wondering myself. Watts auto in Utah. Hunting me down a white dually and then do a full lift and forces. On it. See if I want to trade my 16 Denali dually for it. Mine is badass. Hard to yrade it. With only 2600 miles on the clock. Also lifted on forces. Going to be tuff decision for me. 😩😩😩
