Hi guys, name is 1shot. Local on mustangevolution.com I'm looking to purchase a truck and looking to see if this is a good deal by your standards. 2005 f150 Lariat crew cab 4wd has 90k miles. Dual exhaust, leather heated seats, sunroof, backup sensors, Line-X bedliner. Checked the car fax only one service record for replacement of the brake booster lines. Asking price is 19k is this a deal?
Need to know something since I'm heading to look at it tomorrow, Thanks!

What's Wrong with the 5.4's? I have heard great things from that triton motor. I mean they used it for a good while lol.

They're work horses till they need plugs. Expect to spend a few hundred there.

Also, 16 mpg is on the high side of what to expect

I can deal with 16 mpg considering I was looking for a diesel. Abandoned that ship though, found another 05 stx 4x4 with either a leveling kit or small lift with dual exhaust with 100k miles for 11k. Probably end up looking at that tomorrow. Seems like a better deal than 19k for 90k miles

Diesels do run long and get better mpg obviously but the lariat is the most comfortable ride. My friend used to have on before he sold it. Same thing had dual exhausts and everything. The truck I liked more than my ex girlfriends Audi. No lie

It comes with either engine size, I'll have to call and see what it has in it. The 4.6 would kind of keep me away. Need something I can atleast tow a trailer with.

That's what I was meaning was the plugs. They are a ***** to replace and if you break one you gotta get an extraction tool to get the porcelain and tip out

So is there something I should tell my dad about the 5.4? He has a 07 with 90k miles on it. I would like to warn him before anything stupid happens and cost hundreds.

Just be prepared to spend some money to change plugs. No real way around it.

Also, i've never seen a stx with anything but the 4.6.

Evidently it must be an option to have a bigger engine. Just researched it and came up with either one. I managed to find a lariat with 75k with a 12 month 12,000 mile warranty from a dealership. Lady owned with a tool box. Probably drive and see it tomorrow after I replace this alternator in the mazda. Gotta get it ready to trade in!

The truck is an awesome truck don't get me wrong but the plugs are a money costing thing. The four back ones are the worst to replace
