Here's something I think most guys will agree with ... Ford, Chevy, Dodge ... whatever ... we all love our trucks! I've had both Ford and Chevy, and I have loved them both. My son-in-law now has my '97 Chevy that I sold him when I got my '05 Ford F-350. The day I bought my Ford I thought really hard on the way home ... "I hope I'm not making a mistake". I L-O-V-E-D my Chevy. It is a Black, 4x4, extended cab ... and the kids called it "Old Blackie" (and they still do today when they see it). Of course ... now I love my Powerstroke! When I was younger, it seemed that I always had to have a new car every couple of years ... but with the trucks (I've owned 5 over my lifetime) ... you find one you like and you feel like you want to keep it forever! Good luck with your Ford F-150. You'll always remember this truck. Men ... we love our trucks!
