Just checking in. I don't have a Ecoboost but seems like there is alot of info on this site in regards to the F150 so I figured I would get on board. I have a 2011 FX2 5.0 that I picked up in Oct, I love this truck so much! I was in the Mustang scene for a very long time but wanted to get into something that was more comfortable so I sold my 2004 Cobra and the very next day picked up my Truck and haven't looked back since.

Right now I am seeing about 18.5 going back in forth to work, mostly back roads. On Highway going 60ish I see 19.2 and in town mixed driving I see 17.5s I am pretty happy with the MPG considering my last F150 was a 2008 FX2 and was getting 13 to 14 MPGs mixed and 17 tops Highway.

Nice truck man!

Your secret is safe with me!! I love the color, it Canady Apple Mettallic, looks so amazing in person!

We welcome 5.0 owners! Just not people who come to troll (appears you don't fall under this category).

I also came came from the mustang world. There's a couple people here who did as well.. I can't believe you sold your termi! Welcome to the forum. You're allowed to post anything you want... Except exhaust clips of your truck. That's just rude.

Well to be honest it was very hard to sell that car, it was the car I chased after and finally got one and never thought I would let it go. But I never drove it and my wife had her Turbo Mustang she never drove either, so we both had DD's and our Mustangs. After doing this for years having 4 cars just got to be too much of a pain in the a$$. So we sold her her Mustang and DD then got her into a 2013 Focus ST ST3 and I fell in love with little thing! I started realizing how dated the Cobra was as far as tech and comfort once we got the Focus. So I had a buddy who lost his Cobra in a wreck no fault of his (same color as mine as well) and it just seem like the right time to sell it. I really thought I would miss that car but as soon as I got this truck I no regrets! Picture of both our Mustangs......

I can respect your reasoning. Any plans for this truck?
Not much, 2/4 lowering kit for now. Some small subtle things to the badges. Later on black rhino rims. Then possible intake and tune.

Welcome man, i come from a 5.0 mustang background as well. I had a 93 Lx Coupe with a EFI 331 stroker and AFR heads, fully built drag car. It was a badass car, but got stolen many years ago. I've had a few 4.6 mustangs as well.

Nice looking truck, you will enjoy it.
