Well I have owned the F150 for about 6 months now, so far so good, but like with almost any used vehicle you have the small issues to fix. I am enjoying the truck and LOVE the features and tallness of it.

To date I have done the following:

1) Brand new custom cat-back exhaust with Flo-Pro Di/Do muffler
2) New 275/65R20 Nitto Terra Grappler All Terrain tires (34x11x20)
3) 6000k Hi/lo HID headlights (I wont get into it with you, I dont care if you dont like them, until you make my truck payment, I'll do what I want)
4) 6000k HID Fog Lights
5) 2010 F150 Chrome Two Hooks
6) Two Hella 500FFs behind the grille

I have had to repair the following:

1) New Exhaust Manifold of passenger side
2) New Dorman window regulator on passenger front door
3) Remove door switches and clean contacts

And finally yet to do, replace the timing chain tensioners. I am actually going to replace all of the timing components while I am in there though. That includes:

1) New timing chains
2) New Tensioners
3) New Guides
4) New Cam Phasers
5) New Arms
6) new sprocket

I dont have to, all I need is tensioners as far as I know, BUT it takes alot of work to get the front timing cover off on a 5.4 so I may as well make it all new for about $500.

Like I said, love the truck, but still have to address these few things. Its just a stupid chain rattle on startup because of the tensioner, but I dont want it to cause problems, so I need to get it done!

no on to the most recent pics after a wash & wax

I didn't realize you had a f-150. What year is it? I picked up a 2004 f-150 Lariet myself. It was going to the wreckers from the company I work for so I offered $1000.00 for it and they accepted. I need to do the tensioners and cam phasers as well but for now I'm running 10w/40 oil. That seems to be working for now.
Good luck on the repairs,

Richard

I have visited this forum and your F150 picture.it is too good.i really it and i think The Ford F-150 is a full-size pickup truck that's the core model of a lineup of F-Series trucks--the pickup trucks that have been the best-selling vehicles in America for more than 30 years.
