So far so good
By Diesel Hauler on


2004 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab XLT 4WD Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


The two rear doorlets on the Regular
Cab were the selling feature on this
truck. Having the extra space behind
the seats on a Regular Cab is great.
You get the benefits of almost an
extended cab (a place to put tools and
groceries) without the length of an
extended cab truck. Performance of the
4.6l is fine on the shortbed reg cab. I
don't think it would be enough power
for the 4x4 extended or super cabs.
It is a quiet truck and rides very well
on the highway. There are a few rattles
on rough roads but nothing worse than
most trucks. The assisted liftgate is
good. The higher bed walls make it
difficult to reach into the bed to get

Best Features

Four door regular cab is a great idea. Assisted tailgate helps too. The truck looks large at first impression due to the height but it looks good. Very easy access under the hood due to the grille lifting with the hood.

Worst Features

The XLT 40/20/40 seats are awful. Too hard and feel like they're tilted forward. No power seats option in the regular cab either. The odometer/temp/direction display is very difficult to see at night. The LCD looks faint. And no underhood light on an XLT model?
