a modern 3 liter tdi type 4 cylinder turbodiesel like the rest of the world has, a 6 speed, CC, a good ipod friendly stereo system and less rust.

Extending the extended cab another 6 inches or so to allow actual humans to sit in back would be kinda nice as well.

Electronic cruise control instead of the cabled (pedal moves) one like on my previous F-150 (pedal doesn't move) when engaging cruise.

twin turbo set ususually have small exhaust wheels and with the right set up (& ball bearing turbos) would spool at 2200-3000 rpms, instant power, lets say at a street able 12-16psi..... supercharger might/maybe be pushing 3psi at that rpm ... and yes I wouldn't recommend turbo's in an off road application..

Vision out of the right back side window of my extended cab. The headrest of the seat blocks the window perfectly. Very dangerous for angled intersections.

Wish it had the cruise control that was on my contract, and the tow hooks that was on ford's pictures.
