My best truck yet
By SpudsandSleever on
2005 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab Lariat 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
I've been driving trucks for some decades and this is the best so far. Before this truck I had a GMC Sierra SLT. The Ford is as comfortable but much quieter. The suspension hauls loads easier than the GMC did and tows very easy but at a minor price of needing ballast when empty. The are two negatives so far. 1. Gas mileage with the 5.4 Triton is low but then you can't haul feed with a Prius. 2. The front brakes leave loads of dust on the wheels. Like my other Fords in the past, I need two 40 pound sandbags in the rear when empty so the rear end doesn't hop around on bumpy roads. I am not a rah rah Ford person but this is a very good truck so hats off to Ford.
The dogs love the power side rear windows on the extended cab. Great heater and A/C with well placed vents. Tailgate assist is better than I thought it would be, especially at the end of a long day.
More speakers in more areas for the stereo. DC and AC power outlets in tailgate area. Put these features in the F-250.
