    Just picked this up. Meticulously taken care of. I don't know much at all about these. Open discussion.........

    One thing it needs is running boards, don't want to do the pricey retractable ones, I want them sucked up tight. I like that clean look. I had seen on some of the newer ones that people put F150 take off on these.

    I'd want to know how many miles were on it when it was deleted. I'm planning on selling my 2009 soon.

    I can't recall when he said it was deleted. I think at around 120k, I'm not 100% positive. An older guy had it before him and it was stock.

    Did it come with a step ladder? JK! Nice truck. I looks like it was well taken care of.

    Those 6.4L engines are scary.

    Yep. Once the engine goes, it's gone. Full blown replacement is needed.

    I think the last one I replaced ran about $13,500.

    There are certain cost cutting decisions in the build that aren't great, but most of the major issues come from the emissions systems and bad tuning.

    Nice truck! Too bad Ford put such a crappy engine in such a nice looking truck.

    If you got the coin and interest to where you plan on doing full builds, then fine.

    If not, get rid of it. But but its a nice truc.....get rid of it. They cant all be that ba......get rid of it.

    Lastly, get rid of it.

    Thank me later. I do this all day every day.
