Just bought me a2005 regular cab style side f-150 and sold off my old 1983 f150,that old one was my very first vehicle and it hurt to see it go,could work on it by myself and parts were CHHHEEEAAP,but I have to work out of town so needed something a little less prone to small failures.

I drive this old Ford F250 4X4 around on our property, hauls trash/firewood / feed / etc. Plus my remote control trap thrower mounts to the tailgate, and plugs in to the trailer light thingy. The kids, and dogs, and husband all like to ride around in the back when we get some rain, its a good mudder....lol

I have an 06 F-150 I got as a lease turn in at the dealer I work at. I have been a ford tech for 15yrs so figured it was a no brainer to drive what I service. Plus I got it for $500 over what they had in it when it was turned in from ford lease. The sales manager was pissed because he they make a pile of money the lease turn in vehicles. I also got the lifetime powertrain warranty for an extra $200 bucks, thats prob the only reason I havent upgraded yet, but it still looks good and goes like new.

Courtjester, wait til you tow a trailer with that and the trailer sway control kicks in, its pretty awesoem if you are towing a large trailer and something big passes you in the other lane. The stability control will activate the brakes on one side and keep in a straight line and you will hardly feel it. There are some pretty awesome features on the new vehicles.

A '97 Ford F 150 XLT excab. A measly 4.2, 5 speed manual. Now at 182k.
replaced the origianal clutch at 165k, 1 starter, 2 a/c compressors (I like it cold), 1 radiator, 2 exauhst sensors (the only dealer ripoff I've had to do), 1 break job, 1 front end rebuild, 2 serpintene belts and 3 sets of tires.
It's a great truck and I have no intention of selling it.
