To clarify, the 5.4L 3V V8 from 04-very early 08 have a specially designed spark plug that tends to break when you're changing them. There is a tool available to pull the second half of the plugs out.
The power window regulators in the 04-08 trucks have a bad reputation for snapping, resulting in the need for a replacement (around $100 or so online).
I went from an 03 Silverado to my 06 Lariat, the F150 is unmatched in looks, comfort, and build quality. I recommend looking for a Lariat, if you go to 07 I think you can get the FX4 Luxury Package which gives you most of the Lariat amenities.
Here's the 06 brochure, hope it helps:
