Chevy and Others Bow To THE KING

2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew XLT Rwd Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
I bought a red SuperCrew with tan interior, tow package, two-tone lower gold and of course the 5.4 3-valve with the 3.73 gears. The truck has performed superbly. Originally it was a rental and had 12,000 miles which tells you it wasn't used with the most care, but the interior, exterior etc. showed almost no signs of wear. The truck has never let me down. The only thing "bad" that happened was it needed a new starter. The interior has top-notch quality and design much better than other trucks. The exterior is muscular and tough. The 5.4 performs with awesome power. The brakes had to be replaced at about 30,000 miles but I drive mostly city, unfortunately. It does get 13-15 miles in town.
I love the looks, ride, control, comfort, power and everything. Especially the 5.4 and advanced suspensions. It drives and handles extremely well. No truck can match this in comfort, control and superiorness. Nissan has a little more power & room, Chevy has nothing, Dodge has HEMI, Toyota has nothing.
The only things I think should be changed are the rear bench should be about 2" higher off the floor for more comfortable seating position. And the standard Continentals are junk! Get Nitto TerraGrapplers and the steering vibration at 60-75 will disappear. Any truck could use more power and economy right?
