Hey guys, basically in this thread I want to know what YOU would do if this was your '05 Ford F150. Help me with some ideas, this is my first F150 purchase and outside of the maintenance I have to do I want to make this truck awesome! Keep in mind my budget is limited currently so if this was YOU and you were making a wish list, what would be on it??
"Here's the truck as it is right now"
Don't fall over...
Paid $3950 Canadian for the truck!
2005 Silver Metallic F150 XLT
Chrome: bumpers, Step Bars, Accents, Wheels
No Fog Lights (Bumper is flush, no fog light insert holes)
4X4 (Automatic with 4Hi/Lo switch in cab)
5.4L V8 (208,000Km's on it to my knowledge quiet normal sounds)
~All Stock parts in engine compartment~
3.55 Ratio Limited Slip Diff (Pinion Seal Leak currently)
145WB Scab 6'5" box
"B" style Electronic AOD transmission
LT265/70R17's Good Year Wrangler Authority's (one tire needing replacement)
Truck for some reason calls for 235 size tires... not sure why but has 265's right now. The spare is 235 however! :P
What I'm wanting to look for...
Mechanical Performance = Top Priority
Suspension Lift/Off-Road/ride quality = Secondary Priority
Stock Stereo/Speaker Replacement = Minor Priority
(but... stock single CD player... CD's jam inside and wont eject, and only 1 speaker in passenger door, rest gone or blown out.)
Pretty accessories = Lowest Priority
(only thing... Factory Jack/Tools were "Jacked" from the truck it seems before I had bought it... Meh... but annoyance)
I'm trying to keep this post as simple as possible with as much info as people would require... please give me a hand guys! I will upload pic's soon!
