    Been here since January, finally bought one.

    As the tittle mentions I have been lurking here and posting over on Ford F150.com for nearly six months now and I finally got the deal I wanted on the truck I wanted and pulled the trigger day before yesterday. Storm Trooper white 2019 XLT 302A Sport 157" SCrew 3.5 EB, 3.55 locker, sport, Max Tow, Pro Trailer, integrated trailer brake, 36 gallon tank, Led spot lights, 20" rims, Tailgate step, power group.

    So far, great truck, super comfortable, really quick for a truck, drives great, kids love it so much it has actually pissed my wife off. BlIS, I wanted it because I think the wiring harness it requires will make adding ACC and possibly LKA easier later, but it turns out to be great by itself.

    Love the truck and to make all of that other stuff even better I got a great deal on it.





    So $38,878 all in out the door, yeah!
    And my girls love it.

    As for me, I am a practicing scientist, I and also a disabled vet who needed a truck to carry some stuff around a while being able to drive up to the top entrance of my house since I don't do stairs well anymore. I will be modifying my truck for comfort, maybe a stage one tuned for performance, and some stuff to make my life easier and increase my mobility enough I can get too and from physical therapy and the pool so I can work out.

    And while it does not happen often here in the PNW, this\/\/ does happen every once in a while in the canyon I live in.



    That is my Subaru WRX under there, needless to say it did not go anywhere that day. I went to bed at 1 am waiting to see if the weather was going to shift to snow but it was still just raining hard so I went to bed. I woke up at six to find it had stopped and 19" of snow had suddenly appeared. Truth be told I am not sure even the truck would get through it. It was 19" of Oregon concrete, 30% water by volume, sloppy, dripping wet and heavy as isht.

    The WRX was boosted obviously, it was also tuned (305whp/396wtq) and I had new springs/struts/shocks/sways/bushings/brake pads/brake lines/brake fluid/Dirreza star specs/enke RPF1 rims on it, ugly rims, but they only weigh 13lbs/corner, changed the way the car drove nearly as much as the RCE/Bilstein setup. It was a fun car, but I am quite happy to have moved up to the bigger more comfortable truck that can tow other toys around.

    Edit: It also looks like I have been lurking since December not January.
