The best of the best

2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab Lariat Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I bought this vehicle lightly used and have been extremely happy with it. I had looked over other reviews of all other makes/models and overall the Ford F-150 was the leader in 2004. Pickup is peppy and the ride is smooth. Steering is very tight and responsive. I very much like the layout of the dash instruments. Quality of workmanship appears excellent. Time will tell on the engine and other mechanics.
My favorite feature is the way the heat/air can be adjusted in almost any way you wish. The other thing I like is the information in digital format on the dash. Right where you see it easily.
If you are parked in a grocery store lot with other cars on each side of you, you cannot get a cart into the space to unload groceries into the rear compartment. Putting bags in the bed has groceries all over the bed. Door needs to open flat to the side.
