I know this is kinda like how long is a piece of string but I figure I will ask the question anyhow.
1) Wish I had a Carol list to go by for buying a truck. (For those that don't know Carol shared a perfect spec for the best aspects to check for in buying a second hand motorhome. )
2) Linda wants me to get a truck NOW she comes around to the idea when I wanted one in the first place instead of the Jeep. Thing is now I am happy with my 5.7l Hemi and have already towed the 29ft trailer and am comfortable with it all having put hours into weighing it all and getting it all set up. But she is uncomfortable with the sway we get despite us having a fancy anti sway hitch ( Centerline by Husky ). Got no power problems and have the break controller fitted but the wheelbase on the Jeep is around 109 inches and the wheelbase of a F150 is 144 to 156 depending on box type on a crew cab. I am not convinced that we would see huge difference that she is expecting but now she has psychologically got the B in her bonnet and you guys know by now aint no getting it out of a woman's head once its in there. lol Sorry ladies but that's just how I see it.
3) So I had my heart set on the King Ranch ford series with a decent engine but this is typical of how I buy a car.
Until meeting you all, I would buy it based on how I like it. King Ranch brown leather seats that's = to sold to me.
But you guys all went and spoiled that logic and now I got to research the heck out of it.
4) You guys have grown up car/truck people in the US more than I ever have been interested. I cannot tell one from another and only reason I can even explain some of my Jeep is cause I have learnt to.
But I have never owned a truck so now the question is which truck ? What make what to look for whats a lemon etc
I feel like I am heading for minefield with my eyes closed and half deaf.
If I had owned one before at least I would no what not to look at .
Can anyone throw some light on the subject that is a life long truck owner.
I got hold of a Ford booklet/brochure and the options alone are enough to put one off.
So what say you all?
