This truck was used in my pinstriping and graphics company and had heavy use for the first 4 years with absolutely no problems. Truck is now sentenced to occasional driving and is perfect. But its a good reliable, comfortable truck. No different drive settings just get in and go. No oil leaks and the air is blowing cold.
Harley-Davidson models have the option of getting a two-tone black-and-silver paint. Of course, I also have done brake pads, rotors, and shocks around, along with oil changes and fuel and air filters. I purchased a new leather seat cover online, and I will be sending in to the body shop for a little rust work on the bottom of the doors and rocker panels which are starting to show rust. . I have 92,000 miles on it and still this truck will rip the balls off these newer junk! But i love the f150 its an amazing truck all around. Other than that, it has been super-reliable and trouble free. Tie rods and rear pinion gasket and a new serpentine belt.
I was going to trade it in and get a new F150, but decided instead to put a little money into the old horse for some cosmetic work. I added the Lucas extended mileage treatment and the cold start knock went away. The 6 disc changer failed and was replaced by a Kenwood touch-screen deck. In 15 years, and 144,000 miles, I have had to replace the alternator, two break lines, and a set of coils. I highly recommend this truck.
Great speed without governor got it up to 140 and was still smooth. Family members have lined up to take my truck when i dispose of it and the local Ford dealership was hoping I would trade it in on a Fusion I bought last year. Do all the usual and required maintenance and the 5. For being a 4x4 and so heavy i get pretty decent mpg. . Stops well on dry and wet ground.
I expect another 35 k out of this truck easily. Im in city and on the highway every day and the overall mpg is usually around 17. Its an 03 so theres not a whole lot of crazy acessories. I still cant believe the looks and stares from people as this beauty goes by as well as a coworker who was lamenting how their purchase of a 2010 f150 would not have happened if they could pry my truck out of my hands. All i ever do is maintenence.
. I'm putting another 900 bucks in it today. Harley-Davidson models have the option of getting a two-tone black-and-silver paint. . . . .
