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
Bigger rear rim and tires.
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.
This truck is the most fun and practical vehicle I've ever owned. Not only is it the fastest truck on the road, but it can also tow or haul nearly anything. Only drawback is lots of high octane fuel.
Supercharger, wide 18" wheels, dark shadow grey, 380 stock HP
IRS, 1.5-2" Lower, 19" or 20" wheels. Upgrade to Kenne Bell SC as factory option. Factory boost guage with a higher scale so you don't have to go aftermarket. Some kind of anti-knapp material on the suade seats where you get in the truck.
This truck is by far the fun pedal of
the new car market.After the new wears
off, smoking burnout for the
youngsters, (I'm 54)its still a lot of
grins, if you want for an everday
driver FORGET it. It's like having a
Street Rod without the work.
Instant tire smoke, the whine of the
Eaton. The overall look and feel of
Up to date floor shifter that works,
Lower rear height, say 2 more inches
and stop lying about 16MPG it just
does not happen.But if you want gas
millage buy a Hybird!
I purchased this truck in December 2012 with 54K miles on it. The truck had already been modified with an oversized blower drive pulley, tuner, cold air package & Bassani exhaust. I had the truck dyno tested
and it pulled 383 HP at the rear wheels. Needless to say, this truck is WICKED fast. Random people come up to me and compliment me on how cool it is. I love the sound of the blower coming on and the fact that I can light the tires any time I feel like it. Starts and runs just like a regular truck, great exhaust tone & instant throttle response. Only bad thing is the 10 MPG around town, but what the heck, I've got motorcycles & junky cars to
drive to work.
