It's all good, sh%t happens.
The 5.4s get a bad rep for being under powered and to a certain extent, that's true. Where the 5.4 struggles is from a dead stop. With my truck, from a stop shes a little slow, but when she makes that first shift to 2nd, she starts pulling hard. Sometimes I just pull out and ease into the gas and get up to around 20mph and punch it..... with 35" mud tires and stock 3.73 gearing she pulls pretty damn hard. That flowmaster 10 series coming through a 4" tailpape sounds pretty good too
