The day after I made the first payment on my tbird in high school, it was at the exhaust shop. 72 hours after driving my Lariat home, I was at the truck shop buying shtuff for it.

Lethal Performance is 5 minutes from my house, I already have a list of parts bookmarked on my ipad that I'll be picking up at the end of the month.

It's my thing, I don't hate it, it just needs some "improvement".

I don't hate my truck, I modify because I'm a car enthusiast and my truck is something that should represent me. And a car enthusiast is a person who can explain why they get a certain vehicle without using the terms practical, low maintenance, or resale value.

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.

Says the guy that changed his exhaust!!!(Flowmaster) Why did you do that? Why change something you spent allot of money on? Do you hate your truck or something?

Seems a silly question to me. I don't maintain, upgrade, or change my vehicle with the "next owner" in mind. I do it with me in mind.

Ha ha...I love the responses in this thread. I love my truck and have nothing to hate about it. My truck is still stock cause I'm on a budget for now, but I really enjoy seeing nicely done mods to trucks and how people have personalized them. I also enjoy seeing nice clean stock ones too. To each their own, and to each who can afford all the goodies there is to get.

Love the truck but wasn't crazy about the stereo system. So on the third day after buying it, went directly to my favorite stereo shop and added subs and amp. Probably swap out the stock speakers at some point as well as I'm still not entirely satisfied but it is a whole lot better than the stock system. And I'm probably a bit past what would be considered middle-aged so it's not as if I have to shake peoples houses as I drive past. But music is important to me and with the mileage I pile up, I just couldn't live with the stock system.

(easiest and smartest "mod" was dumping my Ipod and putting my music on a memory stick-I know this isn't really a mod but figured I'd add it for others frustrated on how Apple plays with Sync)

Consider yourself LUCKY! You said it right " I LOVE THIS TRUCK". Hey I said that and my wife even gets jealous of my passion for my truck. Maybe us guys want to give our trucks a BOOB job, FACE or BUTT lift or Tummy Tuck, even remove some of that CELLUITE! Maybe their just an extension of what we want our wives to look like,LOL! All I know is that once you get infected with the mod bug, its an STD (Socially Transmitted Disease)that you cant get rid of. You usually contract it from internet forums. So you are at high risk. We all love our trucks at first,,just like when we first met our little girls we married. Heck even our girls are constantly modding themselves into beautiful hot women, spending our hard earned cash. So point is that it is a contagious and continuous vicious cycle of life that we all do at some point and time because everyone likes to feel good about their appearance and the joy of improving and the sense of accomplishment is very rewarding inside. "It makes you feel really good". Guys take time to notice or give your wife a complement when she's done something to look good, She will just light up all over. Do we really need to do any of this to our trucks, Not really but just like our wives we LOVE IT!

I hate my truck because of rattles and no heated steering or HID headlights. This is a big deal as Ford sells this truck as a mobil office and guess what: I use it as such.

Ford needs to dust test. All kinds of things rattle on our truck when exposed to dust. Like the rear power sliding windows: why must it creak when dusty? Why can't Ford leash down the wiring harness in the doors?

Why can't Ford use a heavier grease on the front seat slide so they don't rattle on bumpy roads?

And WTF is this thing's purpose other than to make a fingernails on a chalkboard noise when its dusty and cold outside?

Truely a shame when you purchase a vehicle only to get a pile of crap. I did that way back when I bought a '74 Ranchero GT. A bad experience but did not ruin all Fords for me. Had a few other brands for several years and then back to Ford and good results to date.
Last new Ford purchased was a 2010 Taurus SHO. Great car and very few issues other than the service department. They just don't seem to know whether they are coming or going. They are my biggest disappointment now.

I think some people are not reading the OP. This is not a real hate thread. The OP believes that if you do things to your truck, for instance putting new tires/wheels on it, you in turn hate your truck.

Much like when you buy a house, and you remodel your bathroom, you must hate the house.
