All I have to say is that this pick-up
truck is the best the world has ever
seen. This truck is so versitile that
it will run the 1/4 mile and beat all
the imports out there, tow a boat /
trailer or even help you in a move!
Anyone thinking about spending 30 grand
on a performance vehicle and still
undecided on what to buy give the SVT
Lightning a look. And for all of you
waiting for the 2005 Lightning----this
truck will truly be the king of the
road!!! In every aspect of performance
you can think of!!!!
Everything!!!! Supercharger and the
18" Goodyears that hook up and will put
a smile on your face if you feel like
leaving some rubber on the road!!!!
To go manual but hey 2005 is just
around the corner!!!!
I traded my 1999 Mustang GT for a 2003
Ford Lightning Truck. This thing pulls
in every gear with monster torque. It
blows the Mustang GT away and just
about everything else on the road.
Plus,you can tow a boat with it. The
cab in very roomy and the seats support
you very well and, keep you from
sliding around when turning. The only
draw back is that it only comes with an
automatic transmission. I don`t really
miss it with this kind of power.

a better sound system. I like the 6
disc in dash CD player but, the system
doesn`t have enough power and sounds
I love this truck!,from it's sport's
car handling to it's Supercharger
g-force acceleration,to it's special
exterior look's that say's I'm not
your regular F-150 you wanna race ?
It is a lot of fun,I'm glad a went
ahead and bought it after looking at
them for three year's,Plus it seem's I
get that extra special greeting when I
arrive at the dealership for an oil
A fun and exctng vehcl, prfrmnc
on par with a BB muscle car. The
interior is very unsophstcted,
boring and neither fnctnal nor
sprty. The tires work very well but
last about 10K mi due to the wght
and ease of unintntnal tires spin.
It is geard so low that at 80 mph it
runs at 2500 rpm, it seriously needs a
6 spd man tranny. It tows my boat very
well. It runs the advertised 140mph and
feels like it's on rails. The hndlng
is superb, thumbs up to SVT for a very
neutral well-blncd hndlng
pckg. The SC is awsome, a chip will
improve shifts and adds some power. It
is a narrowly focused package that
lacks versitility, but the prfmnc

Six Speed transmission.
Bucket seats and console.
Humm....That would make it a 2005
ligtning huh. Thanks Ford..!!!
How about the same engine and handling
in a ZR2 4x4 Truck package. That would
really be awsome.
