Default Re: Noob. FX4 or XLT ?

not sure where in PA you live so I picked the middle of the state as a reference. I would look into these trucks:

03 Level II, NICE. mileage is not too bad:

Not a bad looking truck with lower mileage:


High mileage but good price:

Badass truck:

That should be a good start for you

and here are some NICE finds:


2014 F150 SuperCrew XLT 4x4
275/65/17 Falken Wildpeak AT3W | Shorty Antenna | Tinted Windows | ProClip Phone Mount |5.0 v8 |Tow Package | Oxford White

Sold/Totaled: 2006 Ranger XLT 2D SuperCap 4x4 Torch Red
15x8 Pacer 164P Polished Wheels | 31x10.50 BFG ATs | Level II Tow Hooks | FX4 Red Insert Seats
Tinted Windows | 6000K HIDs | Kobalt Low Profile Toolbox | Pioneer Speakers

id get the level II

The black interior is ftw

also, if you only want 32's, you can fit them without lifting the truck.. you could do a slight tbar crank though
