Retro Ford F 150
« on: July 16, 2019, 05:37:08 PM »
For an extra 10 grand (or more) you can turn your new F 150 into a retro beast. I'm not a pick up guy but I do like this.

I saw that article the other day. I do like the looks of the retro thing they did. Looks very cool. Not for sure if I'd pay an extra $10K for the look though.

I do believe I could take a new F150 and duplicate the same look for way, way less than $10K.

I'm sorry,But what the hell is "Retro" on that truck? I wouldn't give $10K for any F150 in the first place.  :thumbsdown:

It's the new fad with new trucks. A Jeep dealership is doing the Honcho, and a Chevrolet dealership is doing a Cheyenne. I think the two-tone paint job is the most retro part of the package IMO.

I read what they are offering for $10K. I can't see it. The tires and rims would be the most expensive part of the package that I can see.

Mickey Thompson aluminum wheels $3500 -
35"  Mickey Thompson off road tires $3000
Lift kit $1500
Black Horse Roll Bar $800
KC Hi lights - $800

That takes care of the first 10k. You need another 10K+ for the Roush supercharger and exhaust.

Doing all the labor myself, buying the equivalent parts from Summit Racing, including possible extra $300 for misc. parts, I could pull it off for about $4K.

Even including their labor costs, $10K is still a bit steep IMO.

I think I've seen those running around the houston area - loud mexican music blaring (you know.....music that features an accordion, trumpet and a huge guitar) and decals of the mexican flag stuck all over the truck/religious hologram on the rear window

(by the way.....I "liked and owned" F150 p/u trucks - until they went aluminum and reduced the size of the gas tanks - so they could tout "improved fuel economy" - no no no ford, tsk tsk tsk - now own 2 Tundra p/u trucks)

i used to see all those add-on junkers come through and
i always felt sorry for them. about 80-90 % of the time they'd
plugged some hi-po module or something in or had an alarm
place cut into the first hot wire they found to wire in some
aftermarket gadget and ended up messing up the computer
or eventually shorting something out that wasn't designed to
draw so much juice.
the ones that really got me were the newer diesel owners that
told the service advisors ". . . but my salesman told me i would
be getting 40mpg. . . . and he never said anything about service costing
so much more than my F150 did. . ."

uh. . . . . . . you now have a much heavier truck with much lower gears
and is heavier all around. if you're just driving to work you should have
bought a cheap kia  :facepalm:

IF I want a retro F150 Ill find another clean Gen1 Lightning to buy. My last one (94model) had 425k on it when sold it.


OR Ill start with a clean old F series and build my own as I did with my 85gt.
