Welcome!

Get ready to have the most SPM then you ever had! It won't stop ... every time you go out you will attract more and more crowds and tons of conversations. :thumbs

wannabe questions

Since this thread's new 2004 owner loves his SSR so much, I guess I will not ask if they are too heavy to perform, since I would be getting the new 6.0 engine with the 6 speed. David N mentions above he has 2003 and 2004 Ford HD's and I have 2002 (black with the red flames) and 2003 (same black over silver as David has) HD's and am going to sell at least one to get an SSR. This guy is in a great position to e-mail me on [email protected] and give me a bit of a comparison performance-wise between the F150 HD and the SSR, if he would please. Also, one of ya'll has two-toned his silver SSR so that the lower portion is darker silver and that is gorgeous. I am very happy I bumped into you crazies!!! Thnx for all your info. The one guy with the laundry list of problems scared me a bit, though. One more thing.......anyone know if the automatics will get more gears soon? Momma has grown shiftless. thnx!!!

Well my take on the 6.0 vs the 5.3 is this... I don't mind the HP diffrence, I have a toy that runs in the 9's in the 1/4, top end is well over 190mph and is a blast.

The truck is for me, I love the style and look of this truck. You just don't see many of them and I love it that way.

If you want one to race with and all, that is great, I do not mind sitting back in my truck and watching yall play...

Congrats on the new ride...

When considering an 04 or 05, I think one of the very big differences is that in the 5.3 litre you use regular unleaded gas and the 05 6 litre uses premium. In a 25 gallon tank, that can cost a few more dollars, not that it matters really. They are both sooooo much fun to drive, who cares? :jester
