1993 f150 extended cab with 5.0, is it underpowered?

i know the 5.0 goes like stink in the stangs, but isnt this a little
underpowered for a short box extended cab xlt? I am considering buying a
truck off Ebay, but have reservations on the engine? i currently have an 84
F250 with the 6.9 diesel, but want air and extended cab.

any thoughts or opinions would be great

If the truck is geared properly, it should be fairly peppy. The axle
ratio will make or break it. If it has a 4.10 it should run really
well but if it has a 3.55 or so it will lack performance in top gears
and in overall performance.

I agree. Most of them are 3.55 gears, and they are quite underpowered.
