New truck

well im in the process of selling my rangers because the dealer wouldnt give me a reasonable trade in price for either of my rangers but i got a loan and put a hefty down payment on my somewhat new 2005 F150 XLT 4x4 i love it has 40k miles on it and its only gonna cost me 14k but its next to perfect interior and rides like a dream im thinkin ima save a bit of money and put a rize suspension under it

all i have is dealer pic so tell me what yall think

Is it just me, or does it look like it already has a leveling kit on it.

Boo for F150's, though. Ugly!

14k for a supercrew with that many miles sounds reasonable to me

Well it probably is a good deal.

All I know is that being 18 with a truck payment that is going to probably $350+ sucks. I dont know the kids situation but if he plans on going to college etc... having a huge truck payment is horrible, but like I said I dont know his financial situation.

I like how you say "another". I think I speak for everyone on this forum when I say your truck is legit and you need to keep it.
