I've got the 2002 F-150 lariat
supercrew with the FX4 off road
package. This truck rules! It looks
better than the chevy and the dodge,
AND has everything you could want or
need in a truck. Despite what some say
this truck has plenty of power I can
spin the 265/70/17's, and it can haul
those broke down chevy's to the junk
yard with no problem. Bottom line this
is THE truck to own, problem is
Interior room of an Expedition, and
with the bed extender the hauling
capabilities of a pickup.
Put the cd changer in the dash not
behind the rear seat. AND MOST
IMPORTANTLY LOOSE THE 4 CATALYTIC
CONVERTERS, AND GO WITH JUST 2!!! They
rob this truck of power and beautiful
I've owned my SuperCrew for just over
two years now. I have 32k miles on it
and just took it in for two minor
repairs before the 36k mile warranty
expires. A plastic trim piece under
the front bumper developed cracks and
the a seal of the sliding rear window
came loose. That's it. They replaced
the whole rear window with a better
design and the plastic trim piece was
replaced as well. I have the 4.6L
version and loaded on a long trip it
will get 18 mpg. Amazing for something

Supercrews are very nice.
On the down-side, if you want to haul
big things (like a few 2x4 or 4x8 sheet
of anything) the bed is too short.
Another downside -most of the
Supercrews have the center console-
pretty dumb, given that it
takes away the ability to
seat 6. The 4-door Japanese trucks
feel small and ride like wagons. (And
I'm not talkin' about station wagons)
The Dodge has a great engine, but the
finishing details lack. The same
comments for the Chevrolet, but no

The big V-8 is a must. If you want gas-
milage, may I suggest a Honda Insight?

Overall Great truck. Ride and power
are excellent. Have had a few computer
problems so the jury is still out on
how well it is built. Overall I love
the vehicle and I am going to purchase
an extended warranty because I want to
keep this one for a long time.
