My first vehicle is my current 05 f-150. i love it. I wish i would have got rubber floors and a 5.4. but i can live without either. i love my truck.

I will have this one until:
a. blows up
b. stolen
c wrecked

depending on what comes first (and when) depends on what i will get next. i really like the chevy Colorado sport with the 5.3. Or maybe a toyota tacoma. Or maybe another f-150. wouldnt mind a fx4. The future will hold the answer. as of now, im broke, my truck runs, im happy.

edit: here is some pics of my truck. My 4.6 (*) lots of pictures (*)

Thanks to for the signature.

2005 XLT F-150: x2 5% window tint, 2.5" Leveling kit, Gotts Modd, Wet Okole Seat Covers, PTM headlights, Monroe Shocks,Center Console Speaker box, edge evolution, LED Dome and Map lights, 32x12" cooper zeon ltz's, 20x9 hostage wheels, 55 watt 8000k hid lights, train horns, tinted tail lights, tinted windshield, hella 700 ff's, Patriot Decals inlays & overlays, more to come.

My first car was a 2001 Ford Focus zx3, has 171000 miles, still drives down the road. I figure that car and my truck are both paid off, so I'll keep them til they blow up. Plan on dropping a 351w in the focus when it blows.
