Best 15,900.00 I Ever Spent — Best 15,900.00 I ever spent Rating ***** by Michael Tirpak This F-150 has 252,000 miles on it, still has the original 5.0 liter motor. I did have to replace the transfer case at about 230,000 miles and told the guy to rebuild the transmission while he was in there even though it was not giving me a problem. I pull a 18 foot boat and use it when I am hunting and have not been stuck even though I travel down roads on a military base that are traveled by M1 tanks so they get really messy when it rains. I have 315,000 miles on it now I did have to replace the rear pinion seal and bearings so of course I rebuilt the rear end and installed a Richmond Gear Powertrax No Slip Locker, it was real easy to install only took me about 40 minuets and it works great. I would recommend this locker to anyone, it takes a little getting use to when driving on the street but is worth the traction you gain off road especially if you only have a two wheel drive truck.

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

Pros: Strong motor, strong transmission, strong independent front end

Cons: paint is starting to show wear

'89 F-150 Is Tops — This is the last brand-new vehicle I bought, 23 years ago. It's an XLT Lariat with all the toys, a 302 and 5-speed manual. I found it at Gilmore Ford in Prattville, Alabama, and it was just as I would have ordered it. Now in 2012, with 233,000 miles, it drives good and looks reasonably good. It has all the toys, the air still cools (after a new compressor), PS (new pump) & PB work, and power windows work (new motors). The original clutch lasted until 202K, but the engine keeps on going. Good fuel economy & it will even tow when asked.

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

Pros: Almost everything

Cons: Thin paint & weak tie-rod ends.

Ive only drove it for 5 days, so only time will tell. However I am reading negative reviews about the 10 speed transmission. So we will see how that turns out. Read More

Review By Guru95L478

I wanted heated seats, low miles (35K>), reasonably priced (~35K). It met those criteria. I compared it to a F150 Lariat - 1 year older, 37K miles and $42K - could not justify the increased price. Read More
