Default My new truck!!!

Hey all, I had a 2002 FX4 once, and traded it for an F-150. I wish I hadn't. Now I'm driving a '99 Ranger Sport RWD Ext cab. It's been great so far, but we got dumped on with snow on Sunday and I couldn't even get down the street to get to work. Anyway, I really missed my 4x4, especially the FX4 package. So I found this one, 2004 FX4 Level II yesterday, and I bought it last night. Just wanted to get some thoughts on the truck, and suggestions for mods.
Here are some pics from the dealer's site:

















Thanks,

After seeing the Grabber AT2s on there, i think i just made up my mind to try them out. I have BFGs now and am getting new tires soon. so i want to try those out as they cost a bit less than BFGs

Hey fellas, thanks for the compliments on the truck. I was stoked to find this one still for sale. We are getting to the end of winter up here, and with gas prices on the rise, trucks in general aren't hot sellers. So I got a pretty good deal, I think. Kelly blue book on the truck is $13,670. I got it for $10,500. It needs front brakes and the clutch needs to be bled, but that's minor tune-up stuff. It's got 84k, which is about 12k/year. I'll need to do the timing belt when it gets close to 100k. But I think it was a good deal.

















Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,

the 2.3s have timing belts and the 3.0s "may" have a belt (im not sure never owned one). but 4.0 SOHCs do not have belts they have chains. There was a problem with some early model 4.0 SOHCs (like 2001) that had a tiiming chain rattling issue is how I know
