Four, 6 or 8 cylinder doesn't really matter, if you are just looking to get around in the wintertime and keep your CS clean and indoors. Get something with a limited-slip differential if at all possible. Single spinners are worthless. I've stuck (4-wheel on the fly) Explorers and trucks in lighter snows or on soft/muddy uneven ground, because the left front and right rear would spin, or vice versa. As far as a model, choose one that can serve you in the summertime as well. Homeowners often need a truck to haul things.

I'd look for a 4x4 with a 300 straight 6 5 spd if I was lookin again. A buddy back in probably about 1980 bought a new Ford set up just like that. One of the owners of RC's had a custom lifted Chevy with a built 350 auto said he'd pull that Ford all over. That just wasn't what happened quite the opposite the Ford made that Chevy look silly. I think '96 was the last year for it and brother the 300(4.9) straight six is bulletproof not a lot of hp 148 but 260 ft lbs of torque make up for it and u can mod it clear up to 600 hp back in the day they were ran as budget dragsters some have the opinion it has a broader torque curve than the 302 v8 awe heck just check this out.

Low end torque at that!
Low End Torque = Accelleration

Thanks mystic. That one in stillwell would be perfect. That's where my uncle lives. I've been looking on Craigslist a lot. I'm leaning more towards an auto rather than a stick though.

I've never really been fond of the earlier 302s. Gas suckers, when coupled with the 5-spd and 4x4. Dad had a couple of F-150s that you couldn't keep gas in. Just the hint of a dusty air filter and you could see the hand on the fuel gauge drop. But I'm a little biased, as I'm a big 289 fan... Another great engine Ford should have used a few more years.

The 4.6 I wasn't sure about I've had a couple trucks with one (2000 auto reg cab long bed and 1999 stick extended cab short bed both 4wd) got 14mpg no matter what I did outta both trucks whether it was back n forth to work or haulin firewood out in the timber. Downsized in between to a Dakota- big mistake a couple more mpg but less bed less guts less everything it chewed up the brand new tires I put on the back just tryin to pull my boat out, then got an '03 GMC 4wd less than 100,000 dropped the rear end right before it was paid off not happy. My experience has been best with Ford so until it changes it's Ford for us!

Senior moment ah I was sayin the 4.6 4v completely made up my mind the 4.6 is a major acomplishment the hp outta 282 ci is nuts it was a great leap forward for Ford IMHO.

IMO, the 5.0 truck is too high, but well described.

Im getting diesel so i can haul campers, toy haulers , heavy trailers like a work truck so my dad can trade his 150 for a expo to haul the chillins but than we need a new garage cause both are to big XP the f150 hardly fits

My '07 GT was a 4.6 and I liked it a lot, as I did the automatic. Stomp her to the floor and she never fell on her face. Just a constant pull with varying RPM through the gears. Cruise around town and rip her from interstate ramp-to-ramp and she'd get 18mpg consistently. On the road, 26 and sometimes +, if I didn't kick her down too much.

Mom's '01 Marquis (4.6) is still good with 138,000 on the clock. No leaks, no quivers and you can't pound oil through it. Good mileage and comfortable ride too.

My '11 Ranger (4.0) 4x4 was a gravy sucking hog. They should have came with a towable fillin' station. 12.6mpg-13mpg in town and 18mpg on the road, if I was extremely lucky. Heavy 16" rubber and 4x4 (on-the-fly) contributed greatly to the poor mileage. Too bad the old 2x4 conversion kits with lockout hubs aren't available for later models. That would have made a huge difference. But she DID look nice.

You'll like the Powerstroke. I highly recommend them. Especially the older 7.3.

I have a garage space problem too. I can barely walk around my GT with the garage door closed. I'm forever guarding against door dings. I hate it, but I really don't want to move again. I hate that worse.

As Dad used to say, "She'll climb a tree. This 300-6 will idle up any hill in the county in 3rd gear. Try that with your 8-bangers."

It's nice but it's not worth $5k IMHO. I'd say $2.5-3k max

Agree wit BoB. $3k is a load. $5k maybe, if it's a 4x4 with lockouts. Either way, it'll be a gas burner. Been down that road before...
