Ford F-150/250

Hopefully I've figured out how to post in the right place. I'm going to buy a newer pickup, (probably '06 or newer 4X4 4 door F-150/250), and have always been impressed with my previous F-150s. This one is gonna be a long term keeper, so I want to get the right one. Does anybody have opinions regarding the 4.6/5.4 SOHC 16V vs 24V? If it is an F-250, what's the better engine. Haven't heard good things about the V10, and I'm skeptical of the powerstrokes. If anyone has any opinions/warnings/advice, i'd appreciate it.

Re: Ford F-150/250

We've been driving the E and F series for over a decade, had a few problems with the modules, but mechanically, they've held up pretty well. Going for an 06 should get you a truck without too many miles that's had the bugs worked out of the modules if it had any. I don't remember any issues from that era, most of the module problems ave been on the newer models.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

All of the engines are good for a lot of miles but I'd stay away from the Power Stroke in that era.
