Lone Star or Big Horn?

What's the difference between the Lone Star and the Big Horn? On the "Build Your Own" section they have the same price and I didn't notice any difference between the two.

I can get the Lonestar package in Illinois. I wouldnt say texas only. I thought the lonestar had saddle bags on the backs of the front seats and wood dash and door panel inserts. I thought thats what I read somewhere though. Lonestar is more of a cowboy edition like the King Ranch Fords.

Lonestar is for Texas. I doubt you'll see them on the lots in Illinois. I think you're confusing Lonestar with Longhorn, which is a premium option.

I bought my 07.5 LONE STAR dually in Pryor, Oklahoma. You can find them in other areas, but there is no difference between the LONESTAR and BIGHORN packages

Yeah I have a lone star and bought it in central Missouri. But I did drive two Bighorns and the differences on the two from the lone star other then about 2-3000 bucks was the bighorns had tow mirrors and the covers under the back seat and they came with step tubes. That was the only difference that I noticed when I drove the three trucks. I didn't care for the mirrors and then the lone star was the one that fit in my price range.

I think for the most part they are the same but if the truck is special ordered then it could have different options on it then other ones just like it.

let me rephrase I was mistaken.. the Lonestar is branded that way for the texas market and it is available in other states but its rare to find in other states than texas. It usually has to be ordered with that package when out of state to get it instead of a big horn. There is no option difference other than the badges. everything you can get on a lone star you can order for a big horn and vise-verse... apologies I spoke too soon... but I just looked at the dealer marketing info to clarify.
That doesn't mean that that option can't be custom tailored later down the road to include other 1 off options but as of right now the option group is the same and price is the same.

Longhorn Laramie has not been released yet. I like what i saw of the preview though. Lots of western stitching on brown leather seat, white faced instrument cluster, and saddlebag on rear of front seats...... I like it... not for everyone i guess.
