2002 F-150 FX-4 Full-size 8 ft (man-size) bed. 5.4L V8

Black paint hides some body rot but nothing crazy - for Michigan…

147,000 miles.

Best tool purchase ever, right above the Fat Max non-retractable utility knives.

I remember visiting my mom with my newborn son out in the suburbs and looking out the window at this truck which had 350 miles on it thinking - “Kick ass ! I gotta brand new truck ! I can go anywhere !”

Mom is 16 yrs gone and my son is up in Marquette going to NMU.

In reality it has been a fantastic work vehicle with only one lightning trip to NYC on it. Otherwise all local.

Thanks blackie and happy birthday !

I hear you…my 2004 Tundra has 256,000 miles and hasn’t stranded me yet. My only issues with it have been minor ones like replacing the cable on the automatic shift lever and it’s had a few windshields.

Happy Birthday Blackie! Man, that was one of those super cool moments you had looking out the window and having that feeling. I've been there too, but not for a long time.

Happy B-day Blackie!

I have a 97 F150, 6 1/2' bed, 2 tone maroon and silver 4WD with about 90K miles and still going strong. Great, dependable rig. No regrets :)

Congrats on your [email protected]
Here's my 2007 Chevy Silverado that I got 4 years ago. It only had 36,000 miles on it when I got it and it still only has 45,000 on it now after 4 years. I only paid $7500 cash for it then from a Nuclear engineer that bought it when he retired in 2007 and kept it in a garage except for Lowes trips etc. I baby this truck and it should be the last one I own.
