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 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.
