A truck with a floor shifter??? Thats not right"
Most of the manual trans shifters are on the floor....(-;
The dimmer switch needs to be on the floor too. But I may just showing my age with that.

I was disappointed to learn that F#d abandoned the V-6 Baby Stroke for the F-150. Fortunately, they guaranteed that my reputation would remain in tact...

I have to ask. What reputation might that be? And what does it have to do with the baby stroker?
#20 of 25 Any Ford plans for Avalanche-like mid-gate or quadrasteer options ?

Does anyone know if Ford has any plans to introduce/copy the popular Avalanche-like mid-gate design or quadrasteer equivalent to their truck/SUV lines in the near future?

I hope not. I really think the Avalanche is just a fad. Now, four wheel steering, I can see where that has some merit.
#22 of 25 Very disappointed with the interior.

Shiny plastic is not my bag. Glad I bought a 2003 model.
#23 of 25 FLOOR SHIFTER
Mar 11, 2003 (9:09 am)
I think the floor shifter option is a great idea. I used to have an 88 Ford Ranger and it had a floor shifter. It only became a slight problem when you had three people in the cab, other than that I liked thal little T handled shifter.

My first thought when I saw the new F150?
Aint America great?!
#25 of 25 quadra steer

Ford had a 2000 SuperDuty with 4wheel steering at a test site about 3 years ago. I know of someone was invited by Ford to drive it and give feedback.
One reason I opted for the SuperDuty when I bought it is because I very much preferred the exterior look and larger interior space of the SuperDuty over the existing F150's.
I see that in 2004, the F150 has an exterior look much closer to the SuperDuty and a pretty cool looking interior.. If they had that 4 years ago, I would probably would have given the F150 another look.
