Default 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.

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!"
