    It Is A Good Truck To Start With But Would Like To Move On To A Bigger Truck — for a 97 this truck is sound...body is in immaculate condition....this truck acclerates very fast, very easy to squeal the tires or pull posies if you want to...i would like a better stock radio but this is very loud...and for me the insurance is relatively cheap

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: every day driver around town or a good hauling work truck

    Cons: if you get the v8 like mine the gas mileage is not the best

    My F-150 9wrecked, But Now Fixed) — I like it, I got it and it had been sitin for about 2 years, it was in an accident. We got a new battery for it and it fired right up. The body work was already done, it just ran ruff cause of old gas and the injectors we a little clogged, but now its startin to smooth out.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: ITs sturdy and it runs great!

    Cons: It need new air bags cause it was in an accident lol!

    Truck Built For People That Need A Truck — The truck rides exactly like one. It is built like a truck, so not much care for quality to speak of. It is very cheap to maintain and insure, which is a plus, but the fuel mileage from the 5.4L Triton V8 is a gas-hog.

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

    Pros: if you need a truck

    Cons: if you dont need a truck

    Like It. — It's ok. I like the fact that it's large and people get out of my way. The only problem is it used to be a work truck and it's sort of beaten to hell. I like to think of it as a project though.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Size

    Cons: Needs some suspension work.

    1997 Ford F-150 — Truck has a 4.6L (289 c.i.) V-8. Very solid and reliable engine. Lots of power for the size of the motor. About 210-220 h.p. and about 300 lb. ft. torque. Motor has a real nice grunt... Averaging about 15 mpg but on the highway it gets around 18-20. Does have a K&N short ram air intake. One thing for sure is you can never go wrong with this piece of American Machinery. Real solid truck!!!

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

    Pros: The power is there when you need it

    Cons: Cheap plastic dash on drivers side has a crack right down the middle

    Idk? Lol — I has great acceleration and can climb to 90 pretty smokin fast for being 12 years old and being all stock. It needs a new paint job and back cover for less air resistance. Interior leather is still nice and in good condition despite a tear on the passenger seat. Roof is tearing everywhere due to Texas weather but all in all its really nice. It still runs pretty smooth and can take a turn really well for a truck. Gas mileage is about 15-17 mpg but puts out some serious torque. Its a v8 4.7 liter engine tuned for alil more acceleration. It burns rubber real easily which can be annoying when you don't want to but can provide for fun times.

    Pros: (read the review!)

    Cons: Its a truck! It can flip real easily.

    Ford F150 Xlt 3 Door Stepside — It is very roomy in the cab, it actually feels more roomy that our Full size car, my wife even agrees on that. I have bucket seats up front which is nice because it is a standard and if there was someone in the middle seat shifting would be a pain.

    Pros: Roomy, Standard Tranny, 4.2L V6 (does everything I need to do with it).

    Cons: Needed a little work when I got it because it had been sitting a little while, but it was worth it.

    Great Truck — It was really powerful. I loved the Triton V-8 engine. It was really fun to drive, almost too easy to speed in though. Mine was only a 2 Wheel-drive vehicle, which is probably the only thing I would have changed about it. I really loved the bright red color. It was also way too expensive, which is why it was eventually repossessed.

    Pros: power

    Cons: cost

    Im Not Sure What This Means.... — My truck is great on performance, I havent had any problems with him yet. His build is good with a pretty strong frame built only by Ford (yeah im a Ford Girl). Although hes 11 years old, his interior is still very nice and the exterior is still quite nice too, although there are two places that are starting to chip on his tailgate. Hes just a good time, not great on gas mileage, but not too bad either. I love crusin around in him checkin out the cowboys!

    Pros: Hes a truck, mainly...I'm a country girl so I need a truck that can handle all the stuff I put it through...haulin hay, muddin, and town driving too

    Cons: The only negative with my truck is that he doesnt get great gas mileage...he doesnt get as bad as other vehicles I know but he could be better still.
