Re: Opinion? What cha think of this?
Thanks for the reply.
You've confirmed my opinion about those model years. That Lariat that I looked at was sold by the time I called to make an offer. It was sweet, but it didn't look like a 'work' truck which is what I need. Probably for the best that I didn't get it. I'm with you about the fancy options. I need a good stereo and that's about it. One option that I really missed having on my '87 was intermittent wipers but I guess all of the newer models including the regular XLs have that anyway.
Thanks for the tip about the exhaust manifold bolts. I'm definitely going to be buying another F150 so that will come in handy. Is there anything to do to maintain those bolts once I purchase the truck? Grease 'em up? Spray them WD40 or anything?
In the meantime, I've been searching the internet and dealers within 50 miles of the Pittsburgh area and am having a hard time finding an F150 4x4 with an 8' bed, decent mileage, and fair price. It seems that everything on the market is a SuperCab with the shorter bed. Someone told me that less than 2% of the F150s built have 8' foot beds.
