1999 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB
Excellent performance, acceleration and
handling on curves and at high speed.
Not a good vehicle for gas mileage:
averages about 13.5 city and about 15
on the highway. No problems with the
truck except clear coat. The clear
coat evidently is not compatable with
Louisiana water--the water ATE it.
Can't polish it back to new luster.
Not good mileage on tires either--
Goodyear F1's 295/45ZR18 may last 20k
with rotations every 3k and watch the
Great engine. Nice interior. Good
sound system for a stock vehicle.
Better clear coat please. Different
paint colors--like the SVT cobra's.
Beef up the transmission--shifts like
the transmission is gonna blow--even at
low rpm <3000. Different tire
manufacturer--get tires that will last
at least 30k. $1k to $1.5k every
20,000 miles is expensive.
