Holy crap!!! Story on that?

Nice new truck though! I would just put some little aggressive tires on it and enjoy it.

Too bad about the Ranger. New F-150 looks good though.

Lift that sucker! Throw some 35's on there.

Thats my least favorite body style Ford has ever made. But it still isn't bad. I actually do like them lifted.
