I'm going to look at a 2000 F-150 XLT 4X4, I've been looking for a truck for awhile, and this one looks like a good deal.

Don't bag on Ford in this topic, I like them, they've been good to us and I just don't want to hear it.

That's what I'm going to see...

nice truck, but have you looked at the the super duty line. They rock. I have one. More of a pulling vehicle than the 1/2 ton trucks.

P-man, nice looking truck. The back seats are useless in the regular chassis, unless your about 4 foot and 60 pounds. The Super Duty line has a real backseat, just like my Silverado!!

That's a great truck, Pman, even if I am a little biased! (I maintain the machines that make the cylinder block in that truck!) I wouldn't worry too much about the small back seat unless you are planning on having people back there all the time. It's not that bad to sit in if it's for relatively short rides; I wouldn't want to ride across the country back there, but I doubt that's why you're buying it!

FWIW, because we work there a lot of the guys I work with drive those trucks and I hear a lot of good things about them.

I'm lookin for the extended cab mostly for short rips from field to field (on the farm) or to toss helmets and ski pants and stuff while pulling 2 sleds, which I think a 1/2 ton is good enough for (Dad's 1995 F-150 has been good enough for that)

Other than that it's to be my main vehicle and mostly farm work, so I can haul dripping hydraulic hoses, seed, and other farm type stuff in the box where it's wash-able with a pressure-washer. It's also in my price range (don't forget, I'm only 20 yrs old and poor)

My other option was a 2001 Chevy Duramax, but those just cost too much. Beautiful trucks though. I am still quite particular to Ford, because our family has had nothing but success with them, and I hope to continue that trend with my new vehicle.

We'll see what the dealer has to say tomorrow.

Even though I'm not a ford fan [:D] it certainly is a nice looking truck. A buddy of mine had one, all black. He put on 58,000 trouble free miles before he traded. Let us know if you get it!

only advice i can give is to NOT increase tire size... i did it on the wife's 2001 f150 ex-cab 4x4,... with cruise control on going down the highway @ 120km/h,(75 MPH for my US buds) the OD kicks out & back in on every friggin small incline... it's annoying as hell... but it's been a great truck & I'm sure you'll enjoy.

next time you could get with 3.73 gears or not go so big in tire size.

Just so everyone knows, I don't mod things, I will not change anything on this thing except maybe the deck. I don't do audio, I don't care about any of that stuff.

I like it when I get in, turn the key, and drive.

Too bad it wasn't a CHEVY LMAO just kidding I will stick to my old 1982 chevy heavy half. It is a nice looking truck. But remmeber ford stands for fu*# on race day. Ya I know someone will say first on race day, thats only because it was towed there by a chevy hahahahah. Good luck with your new truck
