Pros

Looks great, feels great, good visablity '04 style has bigger pillers, Cheaper 17" tires way more choice then 18", Its a Ford FX4.

Cons

Door trim keeps comeing loose, no electronic shift but floor shift works great, and hard to reach the oil filter for shade tree mechanics.

A Pleasure To Drive.... — My first 5.4L V8 truck. I find it has lots of towing power and plenty enough power to pass when you need to. The ride is firm but not overly so, with responsive steering. Paint job was well done by Ford. Heated leather seats sure are nice in the winter, most newer leather has heating and cooling now but I still get a kick out of mine. All and all a good buy for someone that may want a truck for off road and on.

Pros

Great Truck..  I've done everything from daily commute to haul dirt/junk with this truck.  I've even used it to pull up roots.

Cons

Fuel economy could do better on the road.  So could the handling in the snow/rain.

Great Commuter/work Truck — This truck has been pretty awesome to me. I just past 100k miles in 2013 and it is still hard to beat this truck. It has all the room you can ask in a truck. There are only a few downfalls which include bed length and some electronics that tend to fail (I had a relay for remote lock/unlock fail, but no big deal - $20 bucks)

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

I love the way this truck looks and the reliability it has afforded me.  strong engine, great towing power and awesome suspension

Cons

Fuel Mileage - it's a truck with 4WD - it's not a Prius.

Fleetside F150 4wd Fx4 With Towing Package — Split duty daily driver with my Miata. 15 MPG vs 24 MPG - I drive 100 miles per day. I love the truck because it's a truck and has everything i need. I occasionally pull a boat which is the main reason I've held on to it for 11 years. That and the fact that it always runs. Amazing reliability! I have 180,000 miles on this truck and am the original owner.

Pros

My truck has not let me down in 120,000 miles and I'm taking it from Az. To San Fran and back without hesitation!

Cons

None, other than gas mileage when I run the a/c, it drops 3-4 mpg!

Awesome Truck, Looking For An F-250 Now! — Great truck! Would recommend it to anyone looking for a dependable vehicle! If you want a reliable truck, you can't go wrong with a 2003 Ford F-150, mine had 33,000 miles when I bought it and its almost 150,000 miles with only a bearing in an alternator going bad and only changing tires, oil, and brakes!

Fast And Furious. — High performance, good on gas, easy in maintenance, for 3 years of owning this truck i didn't encounter with any problems at all. Interior remains as new, I ended up doing different paint job and it brought the truck excellence even better.

Get This Truck — a lot of torque, stops on a dime, feel like a boss on the road. never needed a repair and I've had it since 2002. exterior is unique compared to body styles of the gmc or chevy. interior is grey cloth, standard for 2000 models. gets about 20 mpg. fun as hell to drive.

Very reliable and fun to drive

Cons

Gas mileage sucks and the ABS pump went out on me only a few months after buying it.

Overall, Its A Great Truck — It's an excellent truck, it gets me where i need to go. It's got the power i need when i need it for a decent price. I love driving it with the windows rolled down blaring all sorts of music. Except for when im rolling up to the gas station putting 30 bucks in it just to get it halfway full. oh well.

nice truck, nice handling, overall good

Cons

not four-wheel drive, and i dont really care for white

Nice Truck — It has your average acceleration, braking power and handling that you would find in most vehicles. I wish it had four-wheel drive though. No repairs as of yet. Perfect paint. Just broke 100,000 miles on it. Its a well rounded vehicle.

Zach's Truck — My favorite thing about my truck is the leather interior. another thing that i like about it is the gas mileage that i get out of it. i get close to 17 miles per gallon in town.
