Wow, apparently this company lets anyone be their fleet manager. I swear this guy is dumber than a box of rocks. I call him today to see if everything went ok at the DMV, He has to get a LA title in order to sell it to me because the WY title is not in the companies name, it is just signed over to them, and in LA you cant do a double transfer on an out of state title. Anyway he says "Oh I didn't realize they would need a lien release." Uh Dur how will they know its paid off.

LOL, welcome to the darkside. I sometimes wish I had the Screw, but for my life, the scab is just as good, plus I have the 6.5' bed, not that smaller 5.5' one on most screws. (wow that was a run on sentence) IMO a 2wd F-150 is a bit silly, good choice on the 4wd. Also, the gryphon from PHP was my favorite mod ever. I never really thought a tuner could do so much with canned tunes. The 5.4 was kinda of disappointing stock, almost made me miss my 4.0 ranger.

I really wish I had the 6.5' bed with the screw but that would have made it impossible to fit in the garage lol

Same here. I have around 3" front and back, and either 3" or 1/4" above the roof depending on how I pull into the garage.
And being able to park in the garage is soooo nice!

If you want something economincal don't get a f-150 lol. My average MPG for 3000 miles is like 15.4. I use mine as a DD and it will be on 35s shortly.

This is my experience. Now guys don't think I'm hating on all rangers, I came from the basic of basic truck, manual everything, 2wd, 3.0, etc, etc. My 150 rides smoother, has tons of more power, power everything, can easily carry 5 adults comfortably, 4x4, etc, etc. It was a much better fit for what I needed, my ranger was a fantastic first truck but I wouldn't go back.
