Hey guys!

I'm going to be buying another truck tomorrow.. Looking at two from the same dealer, but only want to get one of them.

1998 Ford F-150 Lariat 4x4 Burguandy
125,000 miles.. 4.6ltr V-8, Automatic

or...

1998 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 Green
104,000 miles.. 4.6ltr V-8, Automatic

Green is $500 more, but I think it's worth it.. My vote is green..

Well, you wanted opinions... I kind of like the burgundy one myself. It is a lariat and seems to have more options. Even though the green one does have less miles, it doesn't have a considerably less amount for me to be concerned about. I have a 03 that’s only about 8 months old with 30,000 on it already. How much are they though? I am glad you are going to go with a Ford!! (Don't get me wrong; I still like the green one).

The more I look at the pics I think the green truck has a long bed. Go with the one with the long bed, a short bed in this buss. is dumb

Lariat is $9,995
XLT is $10,495

Both trucks have 8' beds.. Cap would be taken off of the Lariat.. Either would get a Full Size Diamond Plate Tool box..

Hmm you might think I'm crazy but I think you should be able to talk them down a lot on those prices... I still like the burguandy on for some reason. But go with what you like, your the one driving it and paying for it, its all up to you and they are both really nice! BTW... KBB is around $7900 on them.

Go for the lariat, it will be so simple to keep it clean. I have a 350 lariat and cleaning is a breeze. Just wipe and go. The cloth interiors will smell and they hold dust like theres no tomorrow.
