1996 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
I unfortunately just had to trade this in. It was my first ever vehicle and very first truck. Had 230,000 miles but was still kicking strong. Never ever let me down. Every month I came home from college- 5 and 1/2 hour drive no problems. Had the 5.0L V8 and it was a beast. Sounded amazing with dual exhaust. Had four wheel drive which routinely got me through 2 feet of snow in a northern WI winter. routine repairs for a vehicle with so many miles, but never anything serious. I cried the day I let mine go, but with gas at 4 bucks a gallon and being a college student, I couldn't hold on it to anymore.
Chrome bumper because people don't ride your tail at night. Lights shine right back in their eyes. 4wd never failed me- a blast to drive in all kinds of weather. Always felt safe- hit two does one night doing 50 and had no damage to the truck
Put a dual exhaust on it, lift kit, and modify engine for better gas mileage. Never sell it! You will always want this truck back
