My truck is an 2004 F-150 STX version 4.2 and 5 speed. It is a lot of fun to drive. Can pull pop up trailer with no problem. I was afraid that the 4.2 would not be able to handle the things I do, but was I ever wrong. The STX is the sport truck version. I mostly got this truck because of the price. At $14,350 it was less than a lot of used trucks.
I bought this truck specifically for
pulling my work trailer. At around 3500
pounds w/ 2 tanks of water, the trailer
was a bit much for my 3.0 6 Cyl.
Ranger. The F150 Heritage and it's
torquey V6 pulls it with no problems.
Towing on the highway ia a breeze. The
4 wheel ABS Disc Brakes work great,
even with the weight. Great
affordability and hey...It's a Ford.
