Well im going to be driving one soon ;) so... wanted to know its specs... we bought it like 2-3yrs ago, has about 100k+ miles on it, but its in great shape, all we know so far is that it is a 5.0L engine 8cylinders... well we know the basic dimensions and the bed size, but wanted to know the stock HP output, dont know where the manual is lol, yeah it runs fine, gotta replace the Ignition system, a gasket and a fuel tank(thing has 2 for 60gallons!)

Anyways its a beast truck(i think) and its automatic :) lol
can drive stick but automatic is less worrying....

Go and get your self a Chilton manual for it. They tell you everything you will need to know.

These books will help you keep it in good shape. I have a 1995 F150.

My old truck was a 91 F-150 and I really liked it. I have a F-250 Superduty Diesel now.

Built Ford tough. Good trucks.:cool:

Diesel! dang!

yeah i think this truck is so cool, and its blue...
i hope it does have a 350horse that would be awesome, nothing special but still pretty dang big!

sucks its only getting 10mpg...

is it 2 or 4 wheel drive?

4, you have to get out and lock the hubcaps though, then you got a lever under the seat. its automatic yipee! lol

4x4 cool. The manual hubs are the best bud. These newfangled dash mounted switches and autolockers are more trouble than they are worth.

You could get you a plow and make a litlle money in the winter with it.:cool:

Oh hey! thats a great idea! nice nice.... need to get comfy with the wheel though, i remember i started a little truck little toyota 6cylinder, and i forgot what i did but soon as i turned the key, it shot backwards abruptly then stopped(safety thing kicked in) almost backed it into a deep ditch on accident lol oopss...

guess i forgot to put it to neutral and keep my foot on the clutch... (part about clutch not sure, is it you press down and it wont move? let go slowly and it moves proportionally?)

Yep, clutch depressed is "in" (disengaged from transmission), let the pedal up and it's "out" (you're moving)

Be sure if you get a manual to get the Chiltons as suggested above - Haynes manuals are useless....
