2005 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab FX4 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I purchased this vehicle after several years in a Ranger. The main reason for the move to a larger truck is so I could load an ATV in the bed and do away with a trailer. Excellent move, but at the time of purchase the longer beds were not available thus I have to remove the cross-over box if I want the ATV totally inside the bed, or I have to secure with the tailgate down. Just returned from a week long trip in the wilds of the Nevada desert and found the F-150 perfect for my needs and excellent ride. It does NOT get the mileage in the city as advertised; a little better on the highway, especially if you utilize cruise control, but off-road, for some reason, it got excellent mileage!
Smooth ride, excellent power.
1. Additional internal storage. 2. The ability to add electronic equipment directly to a buss-bar under the hood. (CB's/Scanners/FRS radios, etc.) 3. Bring back the wind-wing! 4. Needs a rain-gutter around the cab. 5. Improve city/highway mileage (At least advertise true situations!).
