2005 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd Styleside 6.5 ft. SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


Bought the truck a year ago, STX model with no back seat or carpet. Surprisingly, plenty of room with 40/20/40 split. Drove the truck 65000 miles in one year, not a single problem, just maintenance and brakes. Although I do get annoyed with front brake dust on wheels. 4WD works great in snow, nice turning and ride for 4.6 V8. towed 2 cords wood, struggled very little. Nice roomy bed, well designed interior. Seats do stain very easily, I recommend covering them as soon as you buy the truck.

Best Features

Nice cab, room for storage with opening doors in rear, turns great, roomy truck bed, love the depth and room to haul but wife hates it, she can't reach anything in it, nice view through windshield and windows.

Worst Features

New seat material, really does stain from spilled water, would also buy 5.4 V8 instead of 4.6, I could use a little more pickup but I always have a lot of weight in the bed.
