Great All Around Truck — I love my '98 150, it has a 2007 4.9L V8 and a flow master exhaust. She has some speed and has never let me down. Fun fun truck to drive! Gets pretty good MPG for a good sized truck.

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

Pros: Good for hauling small loads

Cons: wish i had better MPG

1998 Ford F-150 XLT 4WD Stepside SBReview

95% Satisfied — It's pretty sporty for a 4x4 pickup. It has a lot of spunk and quick reaction time. I wouldn't recommend it in quick turning situations at high speed though, it's heavy in the front and light in the back so it's handling is not so good. However, it is EXCELLENT in the snow and in 4-wheeling expeditions! It's got good clearance and it runs great all the time as long as it has working spark plugs and wires :P It doesn't leak oil on the driveway even after 170,000+ miles! It starts up smoothly as well. I've never had to worry about it much as long as I keep in maintained well enough.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's fun, reliable, and usefull

Cons: high mileage?

Awesome — fast for its kind, well built....it is a ford of course. It accelerates pretty quick, and it gets damn good gas mileage. It also sounds really good for a six cylinder, sounds like a small block v8, no engine problems yet.

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

Pros: quick

Cons: fun in the mud

The Truck? — this truck was given to me by my dad as an everyday truck for high school. It gets alright highway mileage but it doesn't have enough power to get up larger hills. the torque is good and it is a fairly light truck to bomb around in.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it looks nice polished up, sounds like a v8 for the most part

Cons: hard on fuel because of little power, v6, crap tranny

Reliable 98 F-150 — It's a truck, pulls good on the flat, drives like a truck, accelerates like a truck, stops like a truck, looks ok, cheap interior but it works. If you keep your foot off of the floor boards it actually gets decent gas milage. nuff said.

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

Pros: Runs like a champ

Cons: With the 4.6 it's a little weak towing in the mountains

Overall:

Built Ford Tough — Thsi truck is still alive and running strong, on the original clutch!! Ford knows how to make trucks. I lowered the rear suspension with a hangar in order to level out the truck's look. Towing capacity sucks, but after I put the SVT wheels on it, I didn't want to tow squat!

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

Pros: This thing wont die!

Cons: basic, rollup windows.

Fords 1998 F-150 Xlt 5.4 Liter V-8 — All around great truck, however it was in a sort of leap year for lug patterns, and it is hard to find any rims with the 5 on 135 pattern. However the 5.4 well makes up for this in power and torque. The overhead cam and bullet proof block make it a power house for this little body. However the Mass air flow sensor is crap. Pure crap.

Pros: Power, pretty, good options, power everything, can tow, milage is good for a truck

Cons: lug pattern, mass airflow sensor, restrictive slow for air induction

Mileage And Power Issues — Poor gas mileage and lacking in power of newer models. My 5.4L has performance below current 4.6L with gas mileage worse than current 5.4L. Bad squeak in front end. Chinsy interior but good seats, no reason why it doesn't have the fourth door.

Pros: Good all around truck

Cons: Poor interior quality.
