Default My new ride for me

Well, after raising all my kids, it was time for me to have a new truck. First new vehicle I have purchased in 25+ years, for myself.

Went with F150, 5.0, Crew Cab. Sure do like it. It is a bit different than the 4 cylinder Tacoma I was in. But this one gets better mileage and is A LOT more comfortable.

Went with the Ford because of the back seat. Lots of room PLUS rear A/C vents.

Justin Wright at Prestige Ford in Garland, did me right. Plus, he is a BIG time hunter.

.....and God Bless America.

Love it! That other thing I like about the super crew is when those back seats are in their folded up position, you've got TONS of room back there!! I also went from the EcoBoost back to the naturally aspirated V8 5.0 engine... sure do like it too.

I carried 2 bow cases, 2 rifle cases, a Reinhardt target and a small cooler this weekend...just in the back seat area. Tons of space.

Nice truck! I have a SCrew 5.0 as well. I did a muffler swap to a Magnaflow bullet and it really makes that V8 sound good.

Sport mode! Also you can supposedly tap traction control twice to put the truck in “advancedtrac” (?). Haven’t tried it. Manual is the most fun for keeping the RPM (and growl) up

Can’t believe Justin is still doing car sales and still working for Randall Reed. I worked for that guy almost 9 years ago when he was the GM at Hillcrest Ford in Huntsville (a Reed dealership at the time). Congrats on the new truck, looks great.

Wow.. That is one hell of a truck. All the best wishes to you and a piece of advice "Always wear a seat belt when driving this beast"

It is the XLT Trim. This color combo was tough to find at end of year model. 2019 may offer better. See Justin Wright at Prestige Ford. GM and partner and fellow Hunter. This one was just north of 40k but it had all the selections I was looking for.
If you want a bowtie, see our Moritz sponsor.
