Default What am I doing.......Uh Oh new Truck Maybe

Well the day has come that I though I would never see and it may be a big surprise to many----I think I am going full-size! I never thought i would and would always be in a Ranger, but when you have a baby on the way and no back seats or back doors in the Ranger, it's time to move on

I have scoured the interwebs and finally found the truck I was looking for at a STEAL of a price of $14000 with only 76k miles. Truck is owned be a retired guy that puts like 8k on it a year.

2004 SuperCrew 4x4 Fully Loaded
Black Leather Seats
5.4 V8 Triton
tinted windows
brandnew michelins

yes im aware of some issues with the 04-05 F150s, and I will be sure to check the Carfax and go over the truck well before I buy it.









Going to look and possibly pick it up today if I like it in person, but the pictures do quite a bit of justice.

Ol Red will be For Sale, or going to a Sale.

it can, but I dont want to ride the fusion all the time. The wife already puts enough miles on it. So why not get a bigger truck for $300 more than I owe on Ranger, same payment, a little better gas mileage, etc

Hope everything works out for you scott!! But to be a mod on a Ford Ranger site, don't you have to atleast own one Ford Ranger? I would think that would have to be a requirement.
