There are times when we need a truck. Neither of our compact SUVs can haul certain items so, I have been looking for a good used pickup. Yesterday, I found one. I bought a used 2014 Ford F-150 STX Super Cab. It's a 4x4 with a 3.7 Duratec engine. It has 64,000 original miles on the clock. I hope it will give good service.

Thanks. It really is. It drives like a brand new one. It came with a new set of Mastercraft Courser tires and a new battery. I plan on an oil change tomorrow. I plan on contacting the local Ford dealer for a transmission fluid and filter change. Yes, it does have a transmission filter. The pan must be dropped. Old school!

I was specifically looking for a V6 powered truck. I didn’t need a V8. I was trying to find a used Ram with the 3.6 Pentastar or F-150 with the 2.7 Ecoboost. Rams with the 3.6 Pentastar is a hard truck to locate around here. But, this truck had just shown up at a local dealership along with a 2017 Ram with the Pentastar. The Ram was a 2WD and $2,200 more. So, it was a no brainer.
