Great For The Model — This is a great running truck for the model; looks and sounds great with the new exhaust system. Has ice cold ac, and rides beautifully. Overall this is a great collectible truck with a lot of life left in it.

Pros

I loved four wheeling in this truck because it would go anywhere.

Cons

I hated that I sold it because it was tore up.

I Wish I Would Have Kept The Truck Nice To Still Have It. — It had hard core acceleration, horrible braking, and horrible handling. It was show room when I got it. After it came off the mtn it needed a welded frame, a new tire, new lifters, and sway arms. The interior was nice until I stripped it all and made it a mtn truck. It had a great exterior until I took it up the mtn and hit every tree possible. The gas mileage was ok. I loved taking this truck four wheeling. It ran like a hoss.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Cons

not the greatest on gas

Love It — its just an old truck that is a work horse and is used for the things a truck is made to do. a testament to fords ability to build a product good enough that it is still being used and is still dependable after 21 years of service.

Awesome — For a 1990 pickup with only 141,000 miles and only one owner , this truck is in an exellent condition, and runs great. The engine is clean and so is everything under the hood as well as the interior, I plan to lift this baby up and put some 24 inch bed lock rims wit some bad a@@ of roading tires. Then maybe take out the inline 6 and put a v8 in.

Pros

It's a truck.

Cons

Gas Mileage

55

Just Awesome. — My first vehicle ever. An absolutely great truck. Built like a brick house. Has some decent get up and go. Straight gas-guzzler though. Mine got around about 9 mpg most of the time. Great fun to drive though, and I wouldn't trade anything in the world for it.

Great Appearance, Went anywhere it needed to, plenty of torgue

Cons

Gas mileage

35

1990 F150 Lariat Xlt 2wd 5.0l V8 — My parents bought it for me as my first vehicle. It was garage kept by a coworker of my fathers. Gas mileage was about 11/14 when I got it and after Intake, Exhaust, MSD 6AL Ignition and Underdrive pulleys it was up to 14/18. The only thing that went bad on it when I had it was a power window motor and motor pump. Was a blast to drive, even on only 31" tires and 2wd it handled great off road. Build quality was solid, power had a little to be desired but after the above listed mods it would chirp the rear tires pretty easily (3 on the tree transmission)
