just built one and it was like 35k for the stx. thats insane for a truck, id spend the extra $$ and get an fx4. lol. but i cant afford either. lol. when i was doin it i found out that you have to have the 2v to get the manual t-case. the 3v is the elec shift on the fly.

Yeah when you add all the goodies it is insane, I didn't need all that much, just the basics power windows, door locks, remote start, 4X4. The 2009 does come with alot a standard features, Im happy with my truck. I didnt need all the bells and wistles like power fold mirrors, sync, rear camera, man step.

Nice truck!
WTF is wrong with it being a 4.6L?

I drove across 2 provinces towing a 70 trans am on a 2000lb trailer the whole time thinking my buddies 05 F150 had the 5.4L. It wasnt until i said to him "that 5.4 is a hell of an engine, that thing didnt even slow down on the biggest hills... i forgot i was even towing anything at times...."

Then he told me it was the 4.6L

2009 Ford F-Series, 4.6 L, 292 hp (218 kW) and 320 lbft (433 Nm)

1997–2004 Ford F-Series, 2-valve SOHC, 260 hp (194 kW) and 350 lbft (475 Nm)
2004–2008 Ford F-Series, 3-valve SOHC, 300 hp (224 kW) and 365 lbft (495 Nm)
2009 Ford F-Series, 3-valve SOHC, 320 hp (239 kW) and 390 lbft (529 Nm)

Depends on which 4.6. If its the 3v it has close to the same power/tq of the 5.4.


Nice truck man

They offered two versions of the 4.6 in the f150. The 2v which has around 250hp and the 3v that s its around 290. Also the stats on the 97+ 4.6 are not completely true. Up untill I think it was 06 the 2v only had 230hp.

I wouldn't mind a plain XL, reg cab long bed with a 3v. That would be a somewhat sleeper.

You can only get the 2v in the xl unless its 4x4.

I beg to differ, you can get a 3v with a reg cab 8' bed 4x2. Only thing it required was a 6-speed auto from a 4-speed (mated to the 2v.

Ah thought you were talking the 6' bed not the 8'. I wouldn't want the 8' on a reg cab. Looks funky if you ask me lol.

Nice looking truck you got there. This is the first newer F-150 I've seen that has a manual transfer case. It seems like all the dealers who order these truck are eager to load them out full of options.

Rant ON:
Every Super Duty I could find sitting on a lot had the ESOF transfer case ($185 option). I even rationalized to myself that if I could find a truck with a MSOS manual transfer case, even if it was an automatic transmission, I'd buy it. Luckily we didn't find anything like that so we ordered.
Rant OFF

I really like your F-150. It's a good truck that doesn't have to be loaded with $6000 worth of options to be "nice." I'm curious what a truck like that weighs. These new trucks are heavier than most people realize.

thats why theyre "Built Ford Tough". lol. ppl around here always complained about the f150s gettin worse milage than the GMs. DUH! theyre heaver, therefore they get a tad worse milage but for the small sacrafice they are alot tougher than the other trucks out there... when i see a GM truck wrecked they are totally ****ed, but when i see a ford its not near as bad. that should tell you something right there

I would imagine 3v 4.6 with 4x4.

i think he said earlier it was a 2v. i looked on fords site last nite and if its 4x4 to get the 3v you gotta have the elec 4x4 switch, 2v is the manual tcase

Yeah there the only thing that didn't grow on me yet, my plans are that when the f150 Raptor comes out next year is to buy a set of the raptors taillights and headlights they are both smoked. The front and rear look like there niteshaded.

I agree, I'm still waiting for someone to take those apart and paint the chrome inside. Not a fan of them personally, the Raptor ones are awesome though.

There is a guy on ebay that does it and buys your old ones, but its a rip off I think, you can do it at home. I rather wait though becuase of cops, they can't say nothing if they are stock and come that way. Hopefully they wont be to hard to get ahold of when the Raptor comes out.
