Not only is the new F-150 better looking inside, it's also more quiet, safe and spacious. The combination of these features makes these the best-handling, best-riding F-150s to ever leave a Ford factory. Small Rear Door Regular Cab models have a small rear door to help load items behind the back seat. Car details Here is a very nice 2008 F-150 Lariat 5.

It was used as a truck and has some dings and scratches and the bed liner had paint spilled in it along with melting from a winch that over heated, the rear power sliding window motor works but needs a new regulator. I called to request a test drive and and he was more concerned about how I planned on paying which doesn't have nothing to do with testing the vehicle. He would not offer me the test drive until I answered is paying questions. On a serious note, the 2008 Ford F-150 cannot claim the most horsepower or torque in its class, an important bragging right for some truck owners. Everything that is listed wrong with the truck is everything to the best of my knowledge, please notice the dings and scratches in the pictures.
I also have this up for sale locally so if it is purchased I will end the auction early. The F-150 offers numerous trim levels, engine choices and bed and cab lengths.

Fleet buyers can opt for a mid-box cargo container that fits between the cab and the bed. I just wasn't willing to purchase a temporary car or a car with long-term problems. We prefer the 300-horsepower 5. I realize they buy the cars as is from the auction.

Those who like to have as much fresh air in the cabin as possible will appreciate the SuperCab's optional rear roll-down windows, a first in this segment. Though it looks different, some may find the tall bed walls make it difficult to reach a toolbox from the side of the truck. We don't recommend this engine for towing or hauling heavy loads.
