Does what you need it to without issue
By Joe on
2008 Ford F-150 XL 4dr SuperCrew Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Bought this to replace a leased '06 GMC Sierra (family works @ Ford dealer). Very good truck without much issues, only 3 problems that were fixed and not re-occurring...1 the hood latch and release broke..2 radio button stuck..3 door sill tab broke. Rides very well, has decent acceleration (with 3.73 gears) for size of truck, interior laid out well - minor gripe outer edge of radio a little out of easy reach, brakes haul this heavy truck down well, but its a very nice packaged vehicle. Have the extended trailer mirrors which work very well in multi-lane traffic, practically no blind spots. One weird thing, the cruise control is optional (which mine doesn't have) it should have been included.
Trailer mirrors, 4wd, 4-wheel ABS DISC brakes (sadly Chevy & GMC have drums on rear 1/2 tons), lockable tailgate, tow hooks and excellent trailer tow package that includes both typical trailer electric plugs - no adapters needed.
Bring the center stack a little closer to driver for easier access, psgr seat airbag sensor is too sensitive, cruise should be standard with power windows, mirrors & locks. Of course, gas mileage can always be improved.
