I've got my eyes on the 2015 F150 - was thinking about trading my Golf in against it now that we're a 2 car family again (wife has a Fiat).  But, I 'need' a truck perhaps 2-3 times a year, and for the difference in fuel costs, I can rent one when I need it.  Not to mention parking a full size truck in Toronto is challenging.

But I do like them.  I had a 1978 F150 (reg cab, long box - wish I still had it) and an extended cab short box 1986 F150, both back in the mid 90's when I lived out in the country and had to haul my own trash to the dump etc.

Now, I need a 4x4 in the spring to get up the road to the cottage and would like the extra cargo.  For bikes, honestly, I'm getting too old to manhandle them into the bed of a truck anyhow so a nice trailer will fill the void and be hauled by the Golf.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

I had an '08 as a company truck for a few years. Great vehicle. The iForce V8 is a beast.


You should like this much better than the Ford I am sure, FIL has one and they are great, well built trucks.


Yup, I'm sure I'll be quite happy with the Tundra.  :D

That'll be excellent for hauling your bikes to the track.
 
My Tundra is a'07 as well.  Great truck; it did an excellent job dragging my 7,000lb (more or less) travel trailer the 1000+ miles from Ohio down here to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi.  It's got lots and lots of power, is comfortable, and rides good.  About the only thing I'd change is make the gas tank at least 10 gal bigger.

Took the Stepside out to lunch last weekend.

Joint called the Truck Farm Tavern.
Pretty good food. Reasonably priced.
The place is vintage truck and farm themed, and they have two Ford Model T's out back.

A 1913.

And a 1923

Both run and drive too :)

I'm impressed by many bikes on here, but am blown away how bitchin a lot of these trucks are. Here's my meager offering, yes like many on here, I have a 49 Chevy. A good ten footer, paint is shit and she wanders everywhere. As soon as the BSA is sorted, I'll start getting some work on this ol' girl done. I want it satin black and lowered a bit. She is my errand truck, 0-60 in about 2.5....minutes. I have a 78 GMC short/wide that spends a lot of time covered in mud as my D.D./fishing truck.

That truck is too pretty.
Don't be Hatin :P

Bill, an AD Chevy was my first choice when I went looking about a decade ago. But they were either in too good of shape (ie. out of budget range), or they were piles of crap (and often still out of budget). Still on the lookout though :P
Post up some pics of your Squarebody. Would love to see it ;)

Here's a pic after fishing today. Covered in mud. I do have to say, I was very lucky. This truck was built by this guy for his Nephew, who decided he didn't want an "old" truck. The body panels, all brake lines are new. The engine and trans were rebuilt. About the only thing it needs is a seat cover. I went there on a Sunday with $4,003.62 on me and he took it. He had $1,900 in the trans alone. Two new gas tanks, new wheels and tires. I paid less than he had in the Engine and trans. Nothing special, 178 h.p. 350 v8. She's a great truck and looks good clean, which is hard this time of year driving through the mud to get to my fishin holes. She's not big, she's not badass, but she's dependable and haul's my bikes just fine, and some how never gets stuck in the mud. I went yesterday to a hole and there was 4-5 4X's, all the guys asked if I needed a tow out. I smirked and said, she's never stuck me yet.....
