right now I'm looking at a couple of Mazda 4x4 4.0L 4 door trucks. They have them fully loaded for 21k or base for 15k. I know you said you were looking at fullsize, but these are pretty good prices and you'd have some extra room + 4x4.

I used to complain about how the V8's in the F150 and such got about equal mileage as my 4.0L does.. But then I changed the way I drive and am getting ~20 MPG pretty reliably. I have yet to hear of a V8 powered 4x4 full-size clearing 20.. ever!

I'd expect a hit in MPG if you drive both trucks the same way.

Not to mention a programmer would fix your mileage. Before mine I got 16/city and 19/hwy and now I get 18-19 city and 23-25hwy.

Im still in the same boat as you......I need full size.....Ive checked out an 05 expedition with the 5.4.....03 explorer with the 4.6L......and now i need to look at the 06 f150, ive looked at the f150 but havent testdrove it like the others.....The explorer had alot of power and room, i could sit in the 3rd row seats comfortable but my head was touching the top....

I cant decide if it would be better to leave my truck how it is, and trade it in / sell it......or take all my mods off and trade it in stock...

Also all my hard work that I've done to my truck in mods will be taken off and sold on here. Don't get me wrong, i love my ranger but i think its time for bigger and better things.
I know your feeling. Im 6' 3" and my ext. cab feels like a shoe box, I think a full size is going to happen once im done with college.
