    Well after a big stressful story that I don't feel like explaining I finally got a truck. For what I could afford to spend and what I wanted my 2 choices were a Ford Ranger extended cab with the 3.0 L engine with power everything. Or an F150 base model with only air and auto. Needless to say I now have a 2005 Ford F150 which is bright shiney Red!!! Somehow I got the 8ft bed but I'd prefer the 6ft. I'll have to check into that later. I did make them put in writing a class 3 hitch which will be put on this weekend. :D:D

    Good for you Mike, did you get the auto trans like you wanted? When I went looking for mine I wanted the 8ft bed for a couple of reasons, 1) length of some of my rods, and 2) put a cap on it throw a mattress in the back and you got yourself a camper.
  5. Congrats on the new ride. You might have been disappointed from a power standpoint with a 3.0 in an autotrans Ranger. I had a 3.0 five speed and it was just adequate for towing my old Sylvan. 4.0 would have been OK. That 150 will do a good all around job for you as auto or stick. I have a 2004 F150 auto with the 5.4 and am super pleased with it. I only have 3000 miles on it but am getting a consistent 13.5 mpg city and 16 to 18 on the road depending how fast I push it.
    Unlike Toad, I put a lid on mine and figure I will simply slither in to sleep if needed. Guess those young guys :rolleyes: like their comfort. :p :D
