Well it's been two years since I bought my truck new and what can I say, I still love it.
It has 44,000 km's on it now, and only a couple small warranty issues have come up.

- Front rotors "warped" - 40,000km
- Rear shocks leaking - 40,000km

Both of these were taken care of by Ford without any issue.
Engine, transmission and 4wd system are still performing flawlessly (knock on wood).
I still love the 5.0, great growl with silky smooth and strong power delivery, I'm sure the new ones are even better. I drive it pretty conservatively for the sake of gas mileage (avg 18.5 mpg) but every now and then I just have to put my foot in it to remind myself what it's capable of
Interior is holding up great and still feels as new as the day I bought it, just with a little extra dog hair..but what can you do.
I'm still running on stock rubber, the goodyear wranglers have been a decent tire but I'm thinking I'll be going to an all terrain tire for my next set, hopefully I can squeeze another couple years out of the stockers by keeping the mileage down.

If I have learned one thing over the past 4 years of owning new trucks it is that payments suck. This is my second new F-150 (traded in my 2011 for it). If I could go back in time I definitely would have slapped myself out of getting the first truck, would have saved a lot of $$$. But hey when your young and dumb this is the stuff you do and the lesson has been learned.
I'm planning on paying this truck off as soon as I can, keeping it in good shape and driving it for the next 10 - 15 years payment free

A little history for those who are interested:

I with ya my friend. Had mine for approx. two years, and (knock wood) it hasn't been in for any warranty work. My 5.0 has only 23K miles, but it is running smooth, and strong.
