I looked all around and most all the Ford dealers wanted $29.900 to $31,000 for my 04 lightning I went to Wickstrom Ford in Barrington IL, and they gave me a great deal $28,000 plus they gave me $900 over my payoff on my 01 Lightning
A friend of mine sold his 04 lightning which he had put about $7000 into it for $28,500 ...he wanted to buy a house and his wife was on the way, so shop ariund first
I bought it off of my friend for $10,000, and it had 70K on the odometer.
Came with all the extras too.
Bassani Stainless Steel Exhaust & headers
20" KMC rims
LCD Pioneer Head unit w/ PS2 hookups
10" sub behind seat
cold air intake
Plus all the 2001 and up motor upgrades.
I had it tuned over at JDM, and she put down 502 rwhp.
I'm very happy with my truck for what i paid for it.
Your not kidding you sure DID!! get a good deal,any pictures of the motor? you paid what I put down for my 04 plus what it took to make almost the same hp you did.... great truck you have there,
Ya know, i never took pics of the motor, but i will in the next day or two.
Also, just so you know, i traded some of my skills for the truck.
I have my own electrical contractors business here in NJ, and i upgraded my friends electrical panel, and some other oddites throughout his house, and he took it off the price of the truck, instead of paying me.
