    My F-150 — The F-150 is my favorite truck for the 80's and 90's, but I sure am liking the looks and power of the latest Toyota Tundras. My F-150 is one mean machine, but it has still seen more than a fair share of trips to the mechanic.

    Pros: Good looking and Powerful

    Cons: Eats gas like crazy

    The Beast — I love the truck but its about to turn 100 soon and will definitely become the work truck instead of the normal ride soon enough. You gotta love that 4x4 and also the 32 inches of rubber. With some after market step rails the body still looks pretty clean besides some rust here and there and a few dings. Besides that there is nothing I rather be in then a big ole truck!

    Pros: Starts like a champ.. never had a problem

    Cons: Tie Rods.. I just thinks its the make but I seem to be bustin those things all the time

    Mass Produced Ford F150 — My husband's truck - it's a great for what we need it for. Has a few things I would trade for other makes/models but overall it's a truck that has a good sized cabin and bed! Oh, and the V8 doesn't hurt to have either, although we miss having a 4x4.

    Pros: runs like a champ even over 100k miles

    Cons: again, it's a FORD, things break

    Well Built Vehicle, Drives Good, Looks Ok. — Performance is ok, has a 4.6 Triton with a 5 Speed over- drive transmission. built really well, dosnt need any body work. it has a gray interior and white exterior, plus it has 20" chrome wheels. gas mileage is surprisingly well for a V8 truck. It is awesome to drive for me because i just got my license 6 months ago and i love manuel transmissions.

    Pros: Engine, colour, wheels

    Cons: none

    1998 Ford F150 — Likes: 1 4x4 works like a charm 2 goes alot of places in just 2wd 3 semi-comfortable front seats Dislikes: 1 Back seats aren't comfortable for people over 5 foot 6 inches 2 suspension needs to be stiffer in the rear Cost of ownership Have had the truck since September and have only put gas and took it in for L.O.F.

    Pros: Very reliable truck, very fun off-road, easy to steer no effort needed

    Cons: Uncomfortable rear seats for people over 5 foot 6, suspension in rear needs to be more level

    Be Nice To Your Truck — Its got great handling and braking. The acceleration is great for a 4.6l v8. i wish it was a 5.4 but what can you do. I did have to do a few repairs on it over the past few years. The sway bar endlinks did rust through and have to be replaced for like $20. The rear diff got water in it and need to have the fluid changed (dont forget friction modifier!), which was due to pilot error ( don't submerge the back half of your truck in water to pull out a boat...) and brake torque burnouts do put enough to stress on your car to eventually break your u-joints. I have had a problem with a squeak in the suspension in the front passanger side. Inside of the car looks great with the 50th aniversary leather seats. Outside is a bit scratched up from hunting, but looks good after a wax, especially the 4x4 emblems on the sides. Although it costs a pretty penny to drive, with 10 - 12 mpg but if you need a truck, its a good one. Its tons of fun to drive, on and off-road. handles great in the mud if you got 4x4.

    Pros: its nice and quiet for when your sneakin onto a farmers land at 6 AM to hunt. Also great for towing and hauling stuff

    Cons: mpg is kinda low

    Great Truck — I loved this truck. Plenty of power from the big V8. Four wheel drive worked very well and it was comfortable to drive. I added a LineX spray in bed liner and later added a matching canopy. The only problems I had were with the spark plugs and Ford's individual ignition coils. Get them wet, and they are fried!

    Pros: Comfortable, lots of utility, good styling

    Cons: poor gas mileage

    Awesome Truck — It has the 4.6l V8. In 4x4 it has a bit of a launch, decent power for a truck. The rims/tires are big and it easily crushes whatever gets in the way. Its a solid truck and i like it alot. Mileage sucks, but idc. Its really fun to drive, especially off-road!

    Pros: 4x4, V8, its a truck, tires/wheels

    Cons: gas mileage, small back seat

    F150 — The appearance is amazing. I have added several after market parts to make it a bit more fun. The truck has a freak'n lot of power but is slowed down by its 5000 pounds of weight. It has a new audio system with a base link. Infinity base link and speakers. It has an Alpine deck. Billet grills and ac knobs. I put 33 inch pro comps on it. The engine has a gibson exhaust, air aid throttle body spacer, k&n intake, and superchips programmer. It can beat a stock Acura RSX off the line even with the 33's.

    Pros: Power, good ride height, comfortable

    Cons: gas
