If its in good shape and nothing big like that was wrong with it i would do it because you probably wont find another truck like that you could get for 1000 + your 4 wheeler and you defiantly need to ditch that FORD!


Well actually I'm sadly deciding against it.. I just can't be using something with that low of MPG when here soon I'll be running about 80 miles a day average so I'm looking into getting something a little better on gas lol... I really still want a ram but just right now I wont be able to. Oh and I like fords thank you :P lol.. just not the Taurus... well actually I only like the explorer, mustang, ranger, and focus line of cars.. and some of the T-birds (not the newest ones)

80 miles...that's quite a trip. Just curious, since you're a Ford guy, which of the newer trucks do you like better between the 09 Ram 1500 and the F150?

Well I have not looked into them so I'm not going to just go be biased towards the ford. So I don't know... know a guy with a 2005 ram 1500 but his was a V6 so I didn't like it b/c it was kind of a slow turd and seemed kind of plain... I have not been around a NEWER F-150 so Idk much about it.. so in all honesty I'm not being biased.. I do like the ford lightning f150's better than the dodge 1500's.. but like I said this is based off the PLAIN 1500 standard cab... I didn't like it...now the 4 door was cool (friends dad had one) except the back seats were reaaally cramped.. but it was still cool lol.. better than the older f-150's (But idk anything about the newer ones)

What do you expect out of a FULL sized truck with a V-6 lol. Hop in my V-8 4.7 or my moms 5.7 Hemi if u want to go fast, between you and me i raced a lot just on our main strip here and i have never came close to losing against a Ford truck in my 4.7 (which is completely stock still)

I have a 96 SLT CC Short Bed. This has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. Bought it new back in 96 and have taken exceptional care of it since then. I would recommend this to anyone who asks.

2008 F-150: Triton V8 5.4 liter = 300 ponies.
2008 RAM: Hemi V8 5.7 liter = 380 horses

'nuff said

Sounds like a preety good deal, but that all depends on what kind of four-wheeler you are selling. However, having said that, if you need a vehicle for work and you like this truck, then get the truck. Just take the advice of everyone else and at least take it to your local mechanic that you trust and have it checked out.
