i have owned F-150s since 1991, tough,dependable, trouble free. I have been a mechanic for over 40 yrs,and i consistently get 150,000 and more, out of them. I have always had standard shift,which is no longer available now, hence I had to find a used one, instead of buying new. The small v6 is ok, but the earlier straight 6- (,300 c i ,) was more powerfull. Truck shifts,and handles well,good visibility,good ride. There is quite a bit of road noise (this is a standard xl) which i will remedy by applying some sound proofing paint. This is the first truck i have owned with a larger (extended) cab. The extra space behind the front seat is nice, the small narror doors open and close easily.I have had to get used to crank windows,and manual mirrors,as i always ordered my previous fords 'loaded". Truck has 10, thous on it,so im looking forward to an easy 140 more. All in all, Im very pleased.
2008 Ford F150JD - Houston03/31/2009
Great truck so far. Saw it online and was located in Florida. Had it shipped to Houston and it was as great as it looked in the photos. Have enjoyed so far, with no problems.
2008 Ford F150JW - Indiana12/05/2011
I have never owned a Ford before. The truck caught my eye like no other. It was a very sharp white step side F-150. Runs great, very comfortable, and looks awsome. I drove my last truck for 20 years. It still looks and runs good. I will let you know my final answer about my Ford F-150 in about 20 years if it makes that long.
