Some people have ordinary hobbies, well storm spotting is mine. When I went to find a truck I didn't want all the power accessories in it because I put enough in it myself, but I needed a V8, extended cab and the tow pkg and I got them. No "fanciness", it's a truck. And my wife loves it, that's a big plus. I had a 1997 F150 and i loved it. At first I wasn't crazy about the new body style of the 04's but it grew on me. I wouldn't do without it now.

Not a bad ride for a truck but the
suspension is simply too stiff, I get
shaken around quite a bit when driving
on a not even so bad road. I test drove
the Nissan King cab and I believe the
ride is soo much better as well as the
performance but the reason why I didn't
want it is the constant engine and
exhaust noise. The Ford is nice and
quiet. Dissapointing is the fuel
consumption, I don't get more then 350
miles out of my 26 gallon tank before
the "low fuel" lights up. Overall, a
good pacjage for the $$. I received a
$7000 off MSRP!!
