I was a dyed-in-the-wool F-150 guy for a long time... I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one, as each one I had gave me years of trouble-free service. That being said, to me, it's still just a pickup truck. I don't get the Platinum, Lariat, King Ranch thing at all... but, to each his own. Even my new Ram 2500 Lone Star is way nicer than it needs to be, and to me is still just a pickup, not a Caddy or a Lincoln... Apparently, if ya wanna play, ya gotta pay...
I do have to admit that I really that magic, remote start thang... It's gonna be nice in the winter.
