I am in Alaska and originally from Vermont. Rear wheel drives do allright with Snow tires, not allseasons and preferably with studs, check local restrictions.
Put additional weight in the back 200 pounds or more and as long as you are not a leadfoot you should do all right. Through time when you can afford it get a Four wheel drive but once again do not be a lead foot, even with four wheel drive you can end up in the dicth if you are going to fast.
#253 of 569 What defines a F-150 as a Lariat ?
Aug 28, 2005 (11:45 pm)
I am looking to purchase a 2000 F-150 Ford that is listed as a Lariat package, but what features are normally included in such a package to call it a Lariat ? Isn't leather interior a common feature ?
Any thoughts ?
#254 of 569 vibration in 04 fx4
Sep 07, 2005 (6:27 pm)
i was wondering is y'all could help me. i have a 2004 regular cab FX4. thats right a 04 regular cab FX4. i have a vibration when i first take off no mater how hard the accelorater is pushed and when traveling 25-30 mph no matter if accelerating, braking, or just idiling along at that speed. hell, you could probably roll the truck down a hill in nuetral and it would probaby vibrate at 25 mph. i have had it back at the dealer total of 4 times now, in-fact i just got back from geting it tonight. they have replaced the driveshaft, u-joint at rear end, adjusted the pinion angle, and they also told me they can't fix it. the truck has 10,500 miles. it is regular cab fx4 with i have found it is very rare at least in southeastern virginia. i have a feeling the problem is mostly because the back end is so much higher than the front. i live on a farm, so as you can guess the truck has seen its share of off road. i am not talking about rock climbing or mud bogging, i am just talking about average off roading to get through fields. i have not pulled anything with it or have i loaded the truck down. the most i have put on it is about 800 pounds. this is the only problem i have had with it. every other aspect of this truck works perfectly, i wouldn't trade it for anything. i just need to get this vibration fixed. so if any of yall have had the same problems please let me know.

As an owner of a f150 tweo wheel drive I would recommend a f250 with 4-wheel drive with an extended warranty especially on the transmission. They are overall great trucks but hauling a horse from Mass to Vermont can be very wearing on a tranny

Hi Tracy and welcome to the board!
Just a quick note to request that you turn your CapsLock off when posting. It makes things more difficult to read, and on the internet is usually considered shouting.

Hey everyone, I have alot of questions to ask. so here goes. I own a '03 F 140 4X4 with a 4.2L V6. It runs great with 41,000 Miles. This engine has know power at all (on the Highway) Off road no problem. I want to replace that engine with the Lightning engine or at least the Big V8 of the Triton. I do understand that I will have to replace the Trans. and rebuild the rear end. Is this the best way to go? I love my truck and I want to keep it till it rusts to the ground. Any suggestions please E-Mail me at sailorfred17yahoo.com.
