F-150

Got a pretty good offer today on a loaded F-150 FX4.

I'm looking for opinions from those who've owned pick-ups, not just Ford.

I'm considering trading in the WRX.

Also looking for opinions on the Nissan Titan.


Thanks.

Re: F-150

I've got an 05 F150 FX4 supercrew. Have had it for about 5 months now. Love it. Had a 01 GMC ext cab 4x4 before it and like the F150 alot more. No issues so far with the Ford.

Re: F-150

The F150s are nice but better budget more for gas.


Humor me and take a V8 Tundra for a test drive.

And then there's this asshole...

I've driven my bud's new Tundra and like it a lot. My best prices are going to come in with the Titan or F-150 though (dad is in the business.) The wife likes the looks of the Titan better.

Besides, I'll save gas by riding the RC.

.......Oh wait, um nevermind.

Re: F-150

Of both of them, I like the Titan more. If it and the Tundra weren't such pigs I'd have probably signed on one of them..more then likely the Titan just cause the Tundra is replaced next year.

A friend has a new F but it's not the loaded one and I think the interior is a little cheesy. I know thats an odd comment considering points the Nissan had against it for similar...but I think they refined it a bit since those issues came out.

Definetely visit a forum or two on both trucks to find out the real deal though...thats invaluable info to be had.

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

Re: F-150

I'd consider the Ridgeline, but I'm worried that the frame will crack and Honda will want to replace everything with a VIN # on it.

I'm on F-150 #3... Not because of problems, but because I like 'em.

F-150 #2 for me. 05 FX-4 Supercrew.


Only 1 minor complaint. Front wheel brake dust is hard to keep clean.

My buddy has a Titan, and the complaint on the Titan boards is--much worse on gas and only 5 more HP.

Re: F-150

My 40k 2002 has been a good truck. Would love to have one of the newer design models. It will be on my short list when we upgrade...

Re: F-150

Had to do over again, I'd purchase another F-150 instead of this Ram (I owned three F-series before buying my Chevy two trucks ago). They're the best looking truck on the market IMHO (the F-150) and you get more for your money.

That said, I'm sick of trucks after having driven them for going on 20 years now. If I were in your shoes, I'd get a cool sports sedan instead.

My Trooper only has 65k on it, but it's a '98 and I don't want to abuse it. I'm looking for something to tow two VTX 1800's with if I can somehow get the coin together for an enclosed trailer.

Ideally I'd sell the Trooper, keep the WRX, and get a full-size truck. The reality is that I don't want to be obligated to those kind of car payments.

Re: F-150

Why 4 wheel drive? Are you really going to take it off road? I got a GMC that I use to tow the sheep hauler (try that with a sports car Chain ) and the only thing I can say bad is I wish I had gone 3/4 ton. So if you are paying the premium for 4WD consider upgrading to 3/4 and staying 2WD

Must obey the sheep dog

Pulling an enclosed trailer with a couple motorcycles inside shouldn't amount to "abuse" of your Trooper. A little extra wear and tear on brakes, but beyond that, what's the rub?

In the end of course, it's your money, your choice.
