Got a 2005 same truck. Look into getting leveling kit for front from autospring corp. takes a couple hours to do no spring to compress. gives truck whole different look. Plus you can put 33inch or 295/70 /17 no prob.

I drive an '06 F150 Crewcab 4x4 Lariat and I'm very pleased. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Ford trucks to anyone.

However, the gas mileage with the 5.4 Triton is REALLY BAD! (which should be no real surprise)

nice truck....our friend just bought an 07 supercab 4x4 with the 5.4 and 3.73 rear end. i have an 02 f-150 supercab FX4 with the 5.4 and 3.55 rear end and mine feels more powerful on the bottom end. the 07 didnt feel that responsive. like it had to rev over 2k to get going pretty good while mine can get moving easily under 2k rpm....it rides nicer though. either way you'll love it

Buddy,

I tradded in my 03-FX4 150 with the 4.6 and the 355 rears... And i thought the oppisite. When stomping on the fuel (my old 03) I though it took a little longer to get up to speed... On the new one stepping on it and it goes... The heaviest i pulled with the o3 was a 16 ft landscaping trailer with 9200lbs on it.. It pulled it but i could tell i was pushing it.. I think the new one can handle it with ease... I was looking in the manual and it tells me it's able to handle 13500lbs... Will see.... As for gas.. Got 300 miles out of a tank... Will it get better or worse.. Will see.... Nice pic's guys.... I'll try to get some up soon.

the 3v is a good motor.. my little brother has one.. we have done a lot of work to it and she now runs right along with my powerstroke at 540 HP.

might i suggest a diablo sport programmer for custom tuning and shift points, mac performance makes a great cold air kit either them or volant would be my main choices.. and then wrap it up with a borla cat back and you will see around 19 mpg too :thumbsup:

... little brothers truck....


and here's mine...

well you had the 4.6....i got the 5.4
im not bashing......i coulda bought a 04 f-150 with the 5.4but liked the 02 better...wish you the best of luck. i would suggest the Bamachips tuner instead....have heard good things from diablosport but the bamachips is made specifically for fords...my dad has one and wow....a lot more power and 3 more mpg on the highway

Congrats on the new purchase. I've got an '02 F250, crew cab, Lariat, 4x4, PowerStroke and love it. I just heard about Ford's new diesel for '08. It's a 6.4 and suposed to be the quietest on the market along with more HP and torque. Can't wait to see/hear it.

Yea it's also a twin turbo. Hopefully it'll make the Duramax run back to japan and whimper in the corner. But we'll have to see because all of the new diesels are gonna have some bugs to work out thanks to all of the whiney liberals and there ultra-low sulfer diesel and tougher emission standards. what ya gonna do Al Gore has a lot of retards that he's fooled into believing what ever he wants.

I'm not a dodge fan but the new dodge diesel is out and it's 20 hp less then the 5.9 I belive the new motor is a 6.7 Why make a bigger motor and have less HP? I'll see if i can get some pic's of the h1 and the new truck..
