Brought this one home today...

2011 F-150 Fx4 with the ecoboost twin turbo v6, 4.10 rear end with the E-locker, HD tow package and luxury package.



33" Toyo MT's and 20" XD Monsters should be on Friday afternoon.

This truck is unreal...I went from a 2010 F150 Lariat with the 5.4 v8 to this one, and there is no comparison. Ford really went above and beyond with the '11 models...the interior is like a luxury car. The engine is just insane, hard to believe it is a v6. From a stop, you can't stand on the throttle...it will spin the tires and the traction control kills it. If you turn that off, it will roast them through first and chirp into second...

It should do a much better job pulling than my old F150 did (that had 3.55 gears, no HD tow package, and the 5.4). I can't wait to hook up a trailer and see how it handles it.

I carfaxed the miles.. and unless the guy replaced the cluster with exactly 100,000 miles on it, then it either has less or more miles. So I go with less miles. The truck is great even if it had that many miles.. Except the guy on got it from(hes on here) put a older transfercase in the truck and hacked up the trucks wiring and rigged up the 4wd drive switch so the 4x4 would work. But now the front axle doesnt ingage and the truck shifts way to soon because the ECM thinks its in 4 Low... Hack Jobs man...

did you look at your title??? it shoulda said 100+ k miles on it as it did when i owned it. and the previous owner to me changed the dash cluster. my guess is your looking at 200k. just letting you know if you were told different.

actually the title doesnt say the miles and neither did the old one. But they told me the whole story. Im gonna try and look up the history on the truck and if a dealer did the cluster hopfully it will say what the miles where.. Either way the miles to me are that big of a deal.. I dont ever plan on selling it. Im in the works of a new motor and trying to find a d60 front to rebuild and do a sas.. was looking into a cummins swap but who knows.

I dont know why, but the last five cars I have registered and applied for a title , I have never had to say the mileage.. When I bought my ZR2 from my dads dealership the miles where on the title though.

If it is more than 10 years old the SS doesn't require it anymore.
