Smile Newb From NH.

Hi guys! I signed up awhile ago and never got around to posting. I hope Im doing this right. I was on VFO until recently. Anyway, I have a 2001 F150 Supercrew 4x4 XLT, which is currently on ebay. If it doesnt sell oh well. Im happy to keep her. Done a few mods: 3" BL, headers, magnaflow cat back, superchips tuner, subs, 35's, blah blah blah. here is the most recent pic, which I took today, 30 seconds before falling on my *** from the ice in my driveway. Lol.

welcome.

So what else do you have if you sell the F150? Getting another?

I don't think I got "that" much snow this last storm. Prety close though. And I fell on my @ss hand sanding/salting (you know, the state mix) the driveway after plowing it.

I have a Caddy STS, but will be looking for another truck, maybe downsize a bit. Not sure. I like my truck, but its just going to depreciate and I hate losing money. Lol. I own it out right. Its on ebay now with a reserve of 8995.00 and buy it now for 9500.00. I sure hope Im not selling it to cheap, if it even sells on there, and I hope Im not making a mistake by selling it. I dont know. Im having mixed emotions.

I know a little about the dilemma you are in with the sale of your truck.

I had a '83 F250 that I put a new motor in and ended up doing a cab swap (accident) and other body work. And little things here and there on it. Had 2 car payments (not on the truck) so I sold it to get what I owed on one car down and than sold that car as well (it was a stupid moment that we won't talk about). I actually sold the it on eBay (car through Manchester union leader) and the guy bid in the last 30 minutes of the auction. Yep one bid. Showed it to the guy and he liked the truck. I sold it before gas went over $2/gal, the first time. I miss the truck but not the 10mpg. Got another truck 8 months later. Once I got the truck running (blown head gasket and popped radiator) it ran great but it's a '87 Toyota and suffers from frame rot. The '83 was old but looking back I had it to a nice point and should have kept it, plus not a single rust problem with it. But I might not have my 07 Ranger today if I had kept the '83. Toyota was getting so bad I needed a replacement and bit the bullet on a new truck. I still have the Toyota but it's sporting a plow now and as of June will probably only see pavement on the driveway. Like you I hate loosing money and a plow truck is worth more than I could sell the Toyota for.

I'm not sure what the F150's are worth. I do know due to the economy trucks are low right now. BigKen should have an idea what the truck is worth. He's good with stuff like that.

One last thing. I knew a guy that used to own a SVT Focus (Ranger before that) that used the handle JonnyBolt. Any relation?

So where abouts you from?

I'm guessing south with that much snow from this last storm.

I'm near the "center of the universe". Know where that is?

Nice truck by the way. Not a fan of the 4' bed but still looks good.

Forgot to add: All my trucks are in my photo section. Even the '83 I sold.

Lakes Region.... Because of that I will forgive you this time but you were close.

Epping is the "center of the universe". It's sort of a joke.

I work in Concord, kinda near the Lakes Reagon.

Lol. I live in Alton. I got to Concord all the time. I bought my dog, Shelby (a pug) from some people in Epping off of Craigslist a few months ago.

Hello Jonny:

Nice to meet you.

Best wishes with your truck.

I just bought an 2004 Expedition with the 5.4 this November.

I bought it because they had depreciated and I figured that for what I wasn't paying in monthly payments I can certainly apply toward the fuel bill and I'll about break even each month.

As you own it outright, depreciation is only a concern if you don't run it into the ground.

I've been reading that fuel prices are anticipated to skyrocket with the end of this depression due to the cutbacks in oil exploration and production.

That thought gives me all the more incentive to get propane set up on my diesel.
