My New Truck

Here it is. Got it 2 weeks ago. Old F150 sprung a trans leak, didn't want to put the $$ into it at 150,000 miles. So I traded it in, got lots of rebates and an A plan from my brother in law, and got this one. 2004 F150 STX, supercab. No carpet, very simple inside, nothing fancy. V8 engine vs the old V6. Didn't want to get a new one, but it's grown on me and I like it.

Nice truck, but IMHO should always go w/ the 250HD. That is sweet for estimates, meeting w/ clients and occasional trips to nurseries for small plant materials.

A F250 and above is far more truck than I'd ever need.
