Yea. My 4x4 Lonhorn went about $6k more than what a similarly equipped King Ranch with the 5.4 would've went. They're proud of them!

It's an 8 gallon tank. I've got 5k miles and haven't emptied it yet. I'll probably get 6500 miles out of a tank. Better than what my 6.7 scorpion managed.

I do have to say, I'm 51 and bought my first ford truck 3-4 years ago from Clayton on this forum, its an 04 and has been the best truck I've ever owned. I dont work it, just drive it, but its been super reliable.

I've heard several people "afraid" of the aluminum body. Anyone who thinks it matters doesn't understand metal. Like, at all. Or vehicle construction for that matter.

If they ever started making entire motorcycle frames out of Aluminium I'd quit buying them.

5,000+ HP top fuel dragsters also use aluminum blocks.
