2004 Ford F-150 Pros and Cons at TrueDelta: My Bumblebee by MPea

I love my 2004 F-150, and dread the day I have to replace it. It's the most reliable vehicle I've owned and has never let me down. Living in Wisconsin, I trust it more than anyone elses vehicle to start no matter the temperature outside.

Why the 2004 Ford F-150?

Reliability & durability

At this point, I've had the truck for 4yrs, use it for mostly towing a 7'x14' trailer, and have never had a major repair on it.


The trailer I tow with my F-150 is ~5,000lbs. As long as the brake controller is set right, I can barely tell there's anything behind me.

Exterior styling

Everybody has their own opinions, and I respect that, but Ireally love how this truck looks. Yellow with a grey stripe along the bottom edge with nice decals on the side.

Why Not the 2004 Ford F-150?

Fuel economy

Yep, the fuel economy sucks, but it's a truck! I average less than 18MPG each tank with no load behind it, and 10-12MPG with my trailer attached.

Other Features of the 2004 Ford F-150

Ride smoothness

Mine rides a little rough unless there's some weight in the bed or a trailer attached. This may be due to it having the FX4 package, I'm really not certain. My friends F-150 4x4 rides smooth all the time. It doesn't really bother me though.


Expensive, but hey, it's a truck!
