2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab FX4 4WD Flareside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
Simply put: best vehicle I have ever owned. I bought my '04 FX4 with 50k miles. After owning for 5 years, I sold it with 174k miles on it. Every mile was hard driven. I have a heavy foot, like to
floor it, frequently jump curbs with it, drive it like I stole it. Towed a 19' boat from San Diego to Lake Havasu and back on multiple occasions. Previous owner replaced the transmission: he was towing a 26' cabin cruiser with it - something you need an f250 for. Only thing I did was replace alternator and serp belt. Oil changes every 5-7k miles with MobilOne 5-20 full synthetic. I sold the truck to buy a newer model. At 174k miles, excellent resale value. Felt like crying the next day. Best truck.
Good sound system, gorgeous interior (FX4 black leather), comfortable to drive, auto sliding rear window, cruise, 4 wheel drive on the fly, plenty of torque out of the 5.4 power plant, beefy 18" rims (although tires were expensive! 17" MUCH cheaper), sleek styling, towing package and 4 wheel drive were bullet proof.
If I got another one, I would switch out the 18" wheels for 17"s, simply because how dramatically cheaper tires are on a 17" rim. I ran BFG All Terrains and Nitto Terra Grappler All Terrains. I could never find a set of 4 all terrain tires for under $1000. Set of 4 17" tires would have been in the $600 to $700 range. I would change nothing about this truck.
2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab Lariat 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I bought my 2004 F-150 supercab 4x4 lariat on black fiday 2005 with 45,000 miles already on it. This is basically my first truck. This is heavily optioned with everything you could get or want. With the automatic on the floor, I thought the interior was just the coolest. Needless to say, the looks and styling got me. I currently have just under 185,000 miles on the truck. I fully expect to get 300,000 miles or more before i get a new truck. Here is where the mixed feelings come in. I have spent an average of $1500 a year maintaining this truck! My recommendation is this... Do NOT buy the first model year of ANY vehicle when there has been a COMPLETE redesign. Wait until the bugs are out.
Looks are good. Ride quality is great. Handling is very good and the truck is very responsive. Interior styling is very good. Payload cannot be overloaded and I have tried. Towing is fine. I drive mostly highway. I do take it off road into the woods when I need to get firewood or just want to have some fun. I use my truck as a truck should be used, but I do it in comfort. despite all the little things that seem to break, i still feel the truck is very tough and durable. it just feels...SOLID!
Really not a whole lot suggestions here....if this were the 3rd model year instead of the first I probably would have none. As it is.....fix the spark plug issue! no one should have to pay hundreds of dollors just to change the plugs. More durable brakes would be nice. I am on my 3rd set already. Best suggestion i can make to Ford is this....think about the average guy when designing the mechanicals. we do not mind doing some of the work ourselves.
2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XL 4WD Styleside 8 ft. LB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I bought my first Ford Truck in 1990 and have owned nothing but Fords since then but I am about to try another brand after this 2004 F-150. One of the over the plug coil melted down - twice.
The second time leaving me stranded on vacation.
THe dealer in Redding CA stuck it to me on the price of repair.
The rear axle seal started leaking. Replaced both axles as they had a ring worn around them by the seals.
30K mi. later same thing and had to replace axle and seal. Leaked again, back to dealer 3 times.
Still leaks and they say I need whole new rearend. Still driving it but going to sell and buy a 2013 RAM.
Nice looking truck and it has run pretty well except for the coil problem. Good sound system.
Gas mileage sucks. best I ever got on the road was 16MPG at 60MPH with the tailgate off. Pulling my pop-up camper I get 10MPG.
2004 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Love my F150.
I bought it at 18000 miles and now have 73000 miles on it with no troubles.
I pull a horse trailer with it and drive it to work, it is my "everything" vehicle.
Other then changing my oil, and brakes, I haven't had to do any repairs of any kind.
Tows excellent with my horse trailer which probably reaches up to 5500 ibs.
I have towed up steep grades when we go horse camping up in the mountains.
i would definately recommend this vehicle if you want a reliable, tough, and well designed truck.
Only downfall is I don't car for where the "oh Sh@#" handles are in the interior.
They are placed to far forward.
tow package, exterior styling, interior room in the regular cab. Extra space in back great for groceries or even snowboards.
Move the interior handles to right above the door instead of in front .
2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab Lariat 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
This is a wonderful truck to own. It looks good drives good and is dependable. However, expect one if not all of the window regulators to go out. Ford used cheap plastic parts so the gear will go bad eventually. Second, the spark plugs for 04-08 models were designed poorly and get seized into the heads. Expect a bill of anywhere from 800-2000 to replace them as Ford charges by hour to remove them because they break off. Last, the timing gears are plastic and break and result in thousands of dollars in repairs.
VCT Solenoid & cam phasers also go bad. Google all the known issues with this truck first. These are the major ones to expect. If you're able to work through them it's a good truck.
Power. Running Boards. Interior Room. Adjustable Pedals. Lumbar Seats. Over-sized side mirrors. Turn-signal indicators in side mirrors. Optional 4WD. 6-Disc CD Player. Passenger Air-bag automatically disabled for passengers under 100lbs. Rear folding bench seat for additional room. Fog Lights. ABS. Information Display Pannel with MPG calculator and temperature. Back seat fits 3 adults comfortably. Automatic door lock at 15 mph. If an interior light is left on, it will not drain your battery. Towing package. Fun to drive. Great looking truck. Durable bumper (I've backed into a few walls & poles and still no dents!)
Recall on faulty spark plugs. Using more durable parts instead of plastic window motors and gears that eventually break. When my cam phasers went bad it was discovered that the timing gears were broken into pieces and I had to get all the gears and timing chains replaced. This was very expensive. I also had my VCT solenoid replaced with an aftermarket part which the dealer said was not compatible with the rest of FOMOCO parts therefore it threw everything else out of whack! I'm not sure if this was true or just them pulling my leg but my truck drove considerably worse after the bad VCT was replaced with a non Ford Mortorcraft part.
