New Here - No Truck ... Yet

Howdy! I live on some property in Colorado and have realized I have Truck Envy. (Took only three years for the bug to get me. Subaru is the #1 selling vehicle in the high country. My Legacy isn't much of a work vehicle.)

I don't know anything about trucks, but I know I don't want a Government Motors vehicle ... and as good as Dodges LOOK, I keep hearing they're not so great.

So here I am, trying to get educated...

How much money do you want to spend? There are some F150 engines to avoid, such as the 04 thru 10 5.4L 3V.

Hmm. How much?

I don't WANT to spend any money. Given the unlikely possibility, I can probably pay whatever it takes.

I started a thread asking what to get.... https://www.f150online.com/forums/f-...-what-get.html
