Why do you hate your truck??
 
Very time I get in this truck, I'm comfortable. It sounds good (Flowmaster). It rides like a limo. Room? Omg. Everyone that gets in say they can't believe how big it is inside. Quality materials. Looks great. I LOVE THIS TRUCK.

Why is everyone looking to refit, rebuild, re wheel, raise, lower or something. 30, 40 or 50 k for truck to start f-ing with. The next owner is looking for this truck right now.

Please tell me why you paid so much for something you hate and want to change.

I hate mine because it won't smarten up and stop having issues. It's quiet, comfortable, gorgeous, roomy, powerful and efficient. The issues make all of those attributes utterly and completely useless.

Glad others are happy with their trucks, but I am certainly not, and probably won't be until I get rid of it and get one that has less problems.

Because Ford didn't sell a reverse skunk/storm trooper versions.

My truck is my hobby. When I get bored with it I can change it to my liking.

Before and after, completely different.

I hate my truck because it's not paid off.

:D

Cause I want my truck to represent who I am what I do and what I love... I want it to stand out from the rest and have people know it's mine

I'm curious why you think someone hates their truck because they want to modify the appearance or performance? You have a Flowmaster exhaust...why do you hate your truck?

Who says anything about hating? F150 owners generally strike me as a group that are extremely proud of their rides and only want to make a good thing better. Let's face it, for all the doe we pay for these rigs, the bean counters at Ford still need to cut corners or nobody could afford to buy them. The aftermarket is vast with options to make our whips even greater. These things are made to appeal to the masses. Spending some coin to make it your own is well worth it for many of us. It's not hate good sir, it's pride of ownership.

It's called being an individual, when you buy something you just HAVE to do something to it to make it your own unique thing.

Not much thinking involved with the why, very much thinking going into making it YOUR own.

I love MY truck and love to make it MINE and not look like every other truck on the road. I have a problem(wife's choice if words) with not leaving anything stock. I just can't, I modded my bikes when I was a teenager.

I feel that every single mod I have done serves a purpose and wish Ford would offer many of the mods I have done. Why do trucks always have a rake to them? Mines level now! Why do trucks come with street tires? Mines got A/Ts now! Why not a power locking tailgate? Mines got it now! Why they only offer power steps on the highest models? Mine has AMP Steps now! Bedliners, LED lights, the list goes on and on!

We owners do not hate our trucks. It has more to do with personalization and making your truck your own. If I park next to another Ruby Red F-150 in the parking lot, I certainly want my truck to have discernible differences that makes my truck unique to me, and maybe even makes the other guy say, "Dang, that looks good. I want to add that!"

I think it is more like Star motorcycles motto, "We build it, you make it your own." It's personalization and taste. I don't want my truck to look like yours, I want it to look like mine.

I'm glad you said that. I have friends that aren't into modding there trucks, never really cared for or wanted to spend the money on it. And after seeing some of the mods I have done they say " I need that"!

The only Ford truck that I ever came close to hating (hate is a NASTY word) was my 1974 Ranchero GT. This truck had been my dream and I ordered it new from Ford. From the beginning it was a LEMON. Had a 400 CI engine. Top speed was 95 MPH. Best mileage ever was 11.5. Didn't matter whether towing my boat or just cruising. MPG was lousy. Many electrical and mechanical issues during the time I owned it. Finally sold it to my x father in law.
Overall just a lousy vehicle.
Hope I never have another like it.

I hate my truck. This neck pain caused by turning around to look at my truck every time I walk away from it is killing me. :whistling2:

I love my truck more than I have any other vehicle!! I think that I did some mods to my truck because Ford charges more for some of the different packages than what I could buy the aftermarket parts for on a truck. I like the FX4 look and I was able to buy some mods a heck of a lot cheaper than Ford would have sold it to me. There are many things that Ford got cheap with...a light under the hood!! Really, this is one of the cheapest MODS but yet ford obviously doesn't want us under the hood so they didn't feel it necessary to put a light. Everyone's style is different and their trucks represent their personality!! I respect everyone for being an individual...even though I may not like the look they choose...but I don't have to pay for it!! I don't like the cookie cutter vehicle, house, etc. ;)

I believe there is always room for improvement in my truck, no matter what. Luckily i only spend a couple grand on my trucks and keep all stock parts.

So i personally never hate my truck. Just things i wish i could improve quicker than my paycheck allows.

Looks like you ReWheeled, at least according to your avatar!:huh:

I hate mine because:

Everytime I drive it, I get a ridiculous smile on my face that last for hours.

When I'm not driving, I think about driving it. Makes it hard to concentrate.

It's not self cleaning. It's so much fun too take to the beach or go mudding, but it gets dirty. It looks so good clean, it's hard not to spend hours hand detailing it to get it looking it's best.

The wife gets jealous cause other ladies watch me drive by and wish they had a man that drove a truck instead of the wuss they're with that drives a Prius or Volkswagen Beetle.

Because I waited until my Dodge died to get a Ford, and forced myself to drive that crappy Dodge way to long.
