Wow is all I can say. The truck rode great, really quite compared to my older chevy. Its even quieter then my brothers 04' F150 and very solid feeling almost like a 3/4 to truck. I'm 6'3 and I had tons of leg room in the back seat on the crew cab, and I mean I could stretch out nicely back there. The floor is completely flat inside no transmission hump at all, all the way back, thats pretty nice for more usable space and it gave the cab a bigger feeling. I was in the SFE which was the "super fuel efficient" edition 4.6 3 valve V8, the engine had some power when I laid into the skinny pedal entering the on ramp, nothing spectacular but decent enough for a 1/2 ton. I think the new redesigned F150 is a decent truck and I was quite impressed with it. I would consider it in the near future as a replacement to my 1500 Chevy.

They are fantastic trucks. I drove one of the 5.4 4X4's Super crew 6.5ft bed. Wow, That thing was so impressive. If i do end up getting my step dads 2000 powerstroke, i will be getting one of the 09 F-150's. King ranch or lariat. They are so comfy.

I have yet to actually see a new one on the road. I guess the auto industry is really going downhill if the #1 selling truck isn't selling. I would love to have a new F150 Raptor though.

Yeah it must be there are a ton on the roads already and they had maybe 12 on the lot. They said they can't keep em in stock fast enough. There were no 4x4's to test either.

What do you need 4x4 for? Did you happen to test out the "man step" on the tailgate?

Yeah the man step is a good idea but looks a little gay. They got one on the side of the bed now too, you tap it and it folds down, another great idea if your mom drives your truck to the grocery store.

I think if I were to fork over close to $40,000 I would at least want all 4 wheels to spin.

Im assuming you don't need a 3/4 ton?

I grew out of a 1/2 ton in less than a season, and settled for a f-250.

guys I am glad ya'll love them because my 09 is horrible. Ok it is not mine but it is my work truck. I got it last week and the thing rattles, has lots of road noise and as far as towing I can tell you that it is a dog when pulling a 1445 fairway mower and pro gator. Now I know you are mostly speaking of the f150 and mine is not it is an f250 plane jane specail.

250's and 150's are completely different trucks. So be more specific before you start talking bad about something. and yeh XL 3/4 tons are work trucks! Theyre not meant to be comfy. and you probably have a 5.4 in it as well. There ya go.
