    I've always wanted to do a 302 swapped ranger. Maybe one day. Blown up 90's rangers are a dime a dozen.

    I guess i can add this to my list now too. Decided to trade my daily '12 F150 in since it just broke 120k miles but still looked brand new and had good trade in value.

    I special ordered a 16 F150 built the way I wanted. Took 17days from order to delivery! Had it for a week and 500 miles now and so far its awesome,feels nothing like my 12.


    Its a XL Sport,with 5.0,4wd,3.73s with e-locker,all the trailer/tow goodies. Lots of plans for this truck too. Already tinted the windows,put a tonneau cover on,k&n,removed some badges and bought a XLT Sport grill to swap in.

    Nice truck! My brother has been bugging me about buying my 2010 z/71. If he buys I'm going back to a Ford. I've had two F-150's (99 & 01 s'crew) and while my GM truck is OK, I never have liked the thing much other than the 5.3 motor.

    I'm on the fence about 5.0 or Ecoboost. I think both have pros/cons.

    Im telling you these new 15+ trucks make those older ones feel like a horse and buggy! My 12 was a 5.0 truck and so is this one but the 16 feels like it has a blower bolted to it compared to my 12. The lower weight {which you can really feel},extra power and better gears with locker make this thing feel way more sporty than any base pickup should.

    Matter of fact this weds Im taking it to the drag strip for fun to see how fast it is. My 12 ran a best of 15.22 at 93 and I bet this truck has at least a 14.50 in it.

    When talking Eco vs 5.0 I really can find a downside to the v8. See WAY more complaints online from Eco owners by far. Yes they take to mods well but seem to have more cons than pros IMHO.
