The first time I saw this truck, was a photo of it on Craigslist. A guy was selling it in a nearby town, and I got very excited, because the truck is an F150, which I wanted, it was sharp looking, which I hoped for, and it was a great deal, which I was grateful for. The style package is more “loaded,” so the truck has some perks; it’s a V8, it has two gas tanks, has a short bed which makes it look sporty, yet the interior and dashboard are pretty simple, without all the readouts and gadgets of “newer” trucks. This truck is solid. It’s got a wide wheel base, which, with the short bed, make it feel like it hugs the road more, and the cab is still high enough that I can see over most other cars. Other things I like about the truck are, it has power steering, power windows, power brakes, a... (more)
Story
I love pulling up at the "loading zone" at the DIY/Hardware store, and watching the guys who load lumber and materials stare when I get out. They aren't expecting a 5'3" white woman to pull up in this truck.
Pros
It's the perfect size, it's powerful, and it's very sturdy.
Cons
It's bigger than the Ford Ranger truck I had before; the gas mileage isn't that great, and I had to put the dashboard and door panels back together because the previous owner was trying to play electrician, and took them out.

The Ford F150 is one of the most popular vehicles sold in the US, of all time. The 1994 model was no exception, having a very rugged frame and chassis, Front anti-lock brakes, and power steering and automatic transmission. It's a little higher off the ground than previous years, and the Flare Side model has a sporty, 6-foot bed that makes it easier to turn the truck, and back it up. The power windows, bucket seats, and variable heat/air controls all help make this truck a stylish, yet comfortable ride.
Story
I saw this truck on Craigslist, and traveled almost 100 miles to go get it. I paid a very low price for it. It wasn't running, as it needed fuel pumps, so we flat bed towed it home, and started working on it. We replaced the fuel pumps, and the brakes, struts and shocks because our climate made the undercarriage a bit weathered (rusty). When we were done, we started it, and it ran like a champ... (more)
Pros
The most favorable thing about the Ford f150 is that it is tough. You can go over a street median if you have to, though it's not recommended. It's tough enough to drive down a muddy dirt road, but smooth enough to be comfortable for a ride across the city. Some of my favorite features of the Ford F150 are, it's tough, it's powerful, with a 6-cylinder engine, I could pull a 20 foot boat trailer if I wanted to. I also like that it's a little taller than other years' F150s, so I sit higher in traffic and can see more. And, I love that it's got a short bed, which makes it easier to turn and b... (more)
Cons
It is a big vehicle, and can be hard to maneuver in traffic, and park in some parking lots with narrow spots. Also, it's older, so I have to give it more maintenance, checking the oil and fuel levels, because the hoses and gaskets aren't all new.
