    I will attest, the new F-150's are nice. Dad just bought a 16 F-150 4x4 2.7 Ecoboost Supercrew XLT Sport. He got a good deal, plus he traded in his 12 F-150 Supercrew 5.0. I think it a 14k difference.

    However, he and mom are both retired, EVERYTHING they own besides this truck is paid for. They live out in the country, and Dad is to the point he doesn't want to work on vehicles anymore, and he is at a point in his life, he had worked long enough to choose to buy new......

    I understand where he is coming from, as he and I have been out in the 10 degree weather working on the "old car or truck" we had at the time..... I'm at the same point, as my newest car is a 2007 retired Cop Car...... but the family needs come before a new vehicle for me...... one of these days, maybe, but not right now......

    This is exactly why I'm building my 10k truck.

    LOL

    But seriously the reason for me to build rather than buy was that I could turn it off for a while if I needed to. Try telling the bank it's been a rough month so you won't be paying them the next couple payments. Not much of s sense of humor.

    I'd rather take that 55k and have a 600ft lb idi that looks like it just rolled off the show room floor in 1983 :)
