F150 — Fairly dependable truck. A big gas hog! I get only about 12 miles to the gallon. It has a lot of power. It should since it uses so much gas. Pulled a uhaul trailer through the mountains of Colorado and it had no problems. Feel lucky that the previous owner took care of it. The only thing is some rust underneath due to the winters in Colorado. Definitely a truck I would recommend for heavy work.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Like full size trucks you will like this one. Plenty of towing power.

Cons: Gas hog.

F150 Flareside. — Great handling and visual appeal. Plenty of power, but the mileage is subpar and the seating is very limited. Overall, it is an excellent vehicle for a single person or a couple, but with children, it would be mostly a secondary vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great power and aesthetics.

Cons: Poor mileage and limited seating.

Nice Truck — Way Too much power for a 4.6. It would probably eat anything you have and if it didnt then my truck nuts would slap you in the face. got some character dents and dings but its just a old work truck. Gets 14mpg no matter how you drive it

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

Pros: Its Powerful

Cons: I'm driving

Great. Lot's Of Room. And Good Preformance. But, I Always Can Depend On That From A Ford — I miss this truck. 200k, without a problem. Great on fuel, but a little under powered. The old girl fit my ass. I'd love to have her back. I sold it to my stepson, who promptly smashed it up. He ran into an Olds and screwed the frontend. Whata waiste.

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

Pros: It fit my needs

Cons: Under powered

Best Truck On The Road Today — I have had my 98 ford F150 for about 6 months and love it. Ford makes one of the toughest trucks on the road today. i hate fueling it up $75 to $80 to fill it up but its fairly easy on gas. my truck has 300,000 miles on it and still running like a new truck.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: awesome proformance

Cons: filling the gas tank 30 gallons
