2004 Ford F-150 SuperCrew 4dr SuperCrew XLT 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The original equipment tire that Ford uses for these trucks are passenger rated not LT rated. Although the ride is great for the first 20 to 25k miles, I noticed poor ride quality happening gradually as the tires lost tread. Try to find these sizes (255 70 17) is impossible. The rear end as a whole should be Ford's focus on it all. The pinion gears and seals seem to be a low quality. Transmission is rough in down shifting from highway speeds.


Best Features

The truck appears to be tilted from the rear to the front that make it appear to be gigantic while following. 4.6L V8 is enough for all kinds of towing.


Worst Features

Need to work on tranny and rear end. Also Ford should use 265 70 17 for tire sizes due to lack of production in OEM size.

2004 Ford F-150 SuperCrew 4dr SuperCrew Lariat 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have owned many other trucks, but this is by far the most quiet, smooth, and comfortable vehicle I have ever owned (car or truck). The inside design is fantastic and my passengers have a tremendous amount of room and are truly impressed with the vehicle. I have hauled over 3700 pounds of brick pavers in the bed twice and the strength of this truck is impressive. My last Ford truck had 238,000 miles on it and I am confident this 2004 will be just as reliable and look just a nice when I trade it in many years from now.


Best Features

"Ford tough"... I have proven this advertising statement on my own. This truck gets more airtime than my cell phone yet not a single squeak, rattle, or any other noise inside the cab.


Worst Features

Because I spend hours everyday in this truck I have added a Cellport 3000 voice-activated phone system but a DVD navigation or possibly an XM radio would be a nice touch as well.

Review

This is a working fool. I towed a 20 foot U-haul trailer overloaded and got 14.5 mpg at 70 mph. It get about the same mileage working as not. This truck is great for camping and highway. We got 31" snow first year that I had the truck. As a Safety Manager and Accident Investigator, I can safely say this; with its long wheel base, wide stance and 4WD it is probably the safest winter vehicle on the road. Handles icy conditions when every other vehicle is spinning 180 degrees. Plus, it has a Five Star front crash rating.


Best Features

Console shifter, 5.4 L Trintron V-8 300HP engine. Short bed extender. Electric moonroof and electric back window slider.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage!

Review

This truck is a real pleasure to drive and I would recommend it to any one. It's a very solid truck that rides nice and handles very well.


Best Features

Handling, engine, ride.


Worst Features

Fuel economy is as good or better than the competition but an improvement would be great.

Review

Only problem was initial dealership paint repair. No other dealer visits in 32K miles. Noticeable increase in wind & tire noise. Ride quality is degrading but probably due to use on washboard back roads and rough two tracks (though still only minor squeaks & rattles). Interior cloth stains easily & is difficult to clean. 5.4l gets 15 mpg at 70mph - ouch!.


Best Features

Quiet comfortable ride. Stump-pulling torque. Confident transmission & engine control (the fussy electronic controls on a competitor created very scary situations). I tend to break vehicles, and for the most part, this truck is doing okay.


Worst Features

A 6/6.5 ft bed that is not as vertically deep - the taller bed is useless, obscures rear vision & is impossible to reach over; narrower side mirror housings and non-scratch mirrors; fewer chassis points to collect mud, salt, and snow; usable room under the rear seats; more attachment points in bed.
