I just switched out the old F250 V10 for a brand new F150 XL with the 5.4 V8. The old truck was a 2WD and the new truck is 4WD, so that would be a nice improvement when the weather turns nasty and the worksite turns into a mud bath. The new truck is a crew cab with long bed as opposed to the old one's crew cab and standard bed. Nothing wrong with standard bed, but when you also have the tool box in the back, it kinda cramp your style. Now, I have enough room in the back to throw my beach cruiser on back there and head to the beach. I missed being able to ride my bicycle along the strands. The new truck's ride also improved considerably over the older one. On road ride is very, very carlike and well composed. Don't know about offroad or at least rough terrain ride yet. It's an XL so the amenities are very basic: power locks and windows and a stereo radio, cloth interior and that's it. More than sufficient for a work truck. Now, here's the bad part: the 5.4 V8 is gutless.;L Supposedly it has 300-HP, but it has no get-up-n-go like the old V10. Passing on the freeway at 80-MPH requires some serious planning and room for acceleration. I'm not complaining at all. A free truck for getting to and from work is a great deal. A lot of guys would use their company trucks for personal use (which is fine by the company), but I wouldn't get caught dead driving this truck off work unless I have to go to Home Depot or maybe one of those weekends when I feel the need to cruise the beaches on my bicycle and need something to transport the bike in. Sorry, I don't want to post the photos because it'd show the company's name and such. I wouldn't buy one with my own money though. It'd have to be either a Dodge Ram or a Nissan Titan; more than likely the latter, if I were to buy a full-sized pickup.
