I call mine my "sh**box Ford Focus" because everybody laughs at me for driving it, but you know what? It gets 33 MPG and has 120k miles on it. Still going strong with minimal repairs required. I have had to replace the wheel bearings at around 100k miles, front struts at around 90k, and a power steering line & pump around 105k miles, other than that, brakes, tires, oil. Not bad for almost 10 yrs old. Best part is it's paid for........all my vehicles are. People ask why I don't get a new one...........my reply.........why?

Feel the same way. Even if I have to put $200-$400 a year into for repairs, it is a hell of a lot better then $300-500 a month for a loan payment.

You got that right. As soon as I'm done paying for my daughter to go to college it is going to be new vehicle time for me......... With the $650 a month I'm putting out now gone, I won't even feel like I have a payment.........

Hey all, my name is Corey and I've lived in St. Albans all my life, but recently moved to Highgate to live with my girlfriend of over two years. I was just looking at forums about F-150's and stumbled across this one and thought it was pretty neat. I'm currently unemployed but I am looking! I recently received a degree in Criminal Justice and hope to use it soon!

I drive an '04 F-150 XLT with a couple different mods.
Roush Off-Road dual exhaust, AEM Brute Force CAI, HBS 2 1/2" leveling kit, Dick Cepek FC II tires with black 17" mammoth wheels

Hey everyone, I'm Josh. I'm from Enosburg, went to high school at BFA-St. Albans, and am currently attending UVM with a major in forestry, minor in wildlife biology and geospatial technologies. I am an avid outdoorsman, hunting and fishing about every season, logging, sugaring, working on the family farm and with my draft horses. I recently got a 1997 F250 Light Duty, plan on putting a steel flatbed on it and a plow next year, its got the 4.6. I also had until recently a 2000 Ranger stepside XLT with some real good mods. It had 33" cooper STT's, F150 leafs and front end springs with custom fabricated mounts. Ended up giving it about 3 inches of lift, also had a homemade cold air intake, 3 inch single swept exhaust. But, long story short, I left a key at home when I came down to school and my brother got ahold of the truck as did my dad. Didn't last too long, now its sitting behind the garage hoping to get rebuilt someday

Hi Kendrick good to meet ya. What part of Vermont do you live in now? You sound like you stay busy with a full time job and farm. What type of farm do you have?
By the way I'm the chapter leader for Vermont. We do a monthly BS thread where you can pop in to say hi or start a discussion about something.

If you like to join the chapter you can make a request and then it will be my job to approve or deny, but most likely approve since you are a resident of Vermont now.. If you don't mind we like to have people put there first name down in the signature to be a little more personal.

I see you already requested membership. I have accepted it so should be good. Yours is actually the first I have done so I will check to see if I need to do anything else.

Glad to meet you Glen. Mud season is drying fast. There there are a couple. I'm in central Vermont, just east of Barre. I'm going to go and approve your membership.
