The Lariat is a premium ride

It's good looking inside and out. It drives and rides more like a SUV than a truck. The premium audio system is very impressive. The Lariat is really a luxury machine. It has many features only found on the finest cars. My only complaint is that it is so large that it is difficult to park or put through an automatic car wash.
Audio system, quiet smooth ride, styling.
I installed aftermarket mud flaps and custom molded floor mats (a must). The throttle response and shifting response could be better. I re-programmed the computer with a superchips module and it responds great now (takes about 6 minutes and feels like 50 horsepower).
