good point to the deltas in the f150's! looks like I have no edit function in my original post, so looks like it is what it is unfortunately. my first ford, I'm very pleased with her so far.

What up w the brakes? wear? performance? reliability? overheating? I just do city driving on smooth roads. sometimes haul small trailer up to 3000# load. the 4.2 does fine for what I do for work. I've not noticed an issue yet. being my first truck, I have no comparison.

I've only dropped the spare once and am in the south where ther is no salt. I'll grease my next round in maintenance just in case. coming from the bit three Mecca in michiagan, I get the corrosion issues. awesome to no longer break salted bolts living in my region.

been dealing w the plenum codes 171' 174 recently. working in the plastics industry for many years, I have to say this is a case where my greybeared mentors are correct that aluminum is the way to go. it's all cost verse service life trade off analysis- I get it. keeps it affordable.

keep the experiences coming! I like the truck, and am looking to keep her going for as long as I can.
