Maintenance:

-Cooling system serviced/flushed

-religious oil changes
-fuel filter

Other info:
-Seats are in great condition, but there's a small wear spot on the driver side thigh bolster.
-I slid off an icy road in February at low speed. Hit a street sign and it scraped the bumper cover. Insurance paid for a new front bumper cover, then I paid to have the rest of the parts repainted (to get rid of the normal rock chips from everyday driving)



My truck is very conservatively tuned. I drive it daily as a commuter car and don't race... so I wanted it to be reliable & safe. There's very little timing in it, maybe 12*. This tune made 380rwhp & 515rwtq. If you up the timing and get more aggressive, it shouldn't have a problem safely making 430-440rwhp.

I bought this thing with 110K on the clock. Re-did everything on it to make sure it was correct. Performed all maintenance work. This thing is ready to go... really. Just get in and drive. No issues.

129,700 miles.

I'll get some up as soon as possible.

I got the truck out of Kansas, so it hasn't been subjected to the harsh NJ winters and salt. The chassis appears to have had undercoat from day one. Some worn spots are showing very little surface rust, and that's on the inside of the frame rails in few spots. The underside of this thing is good to go. No leaks, seaps, drips, drops, nothing.

Interior: the gray carpet is starting to show its age. I have a brand new black ACC mass-back carpet here for it, with new Chikenears black mats with silver embroidery. They go with the truck.

I'll get pics up sometime tomorrow if the weather cooperates.

GLWS... My truck is at 171,000 miles and you can eat of it. Thought about selling it but I think I just gonna keep it.

Your price is decent and you should get a buyer quickly.

Thanks Rgig. If it sells, it sells... if not, I get to drive a clean, reliable, bada$$ truck for a while longer :)

Here's a few interior & engine bay shots. The weather sucked today, so I'll get some exterior shots in a few days.

No floods, fires, natural disasters, or other acts of God.

The MAF is seated in a position where it will get the best reading. It was clocked when the filter & adapter were installed. It was then dyno'd same day.

VIN: 2FTZF07371CA55481

Yes, sir... clear title. I have the CarFax from when I bought the truck. The only issue that would show up is the incident that I described in the ad. I slid off the road in bad weather 2/2010... struck a sign post and had insurance replace the front bumper cover.

No flood damage, no thefts, no fire, no nothing.

I have the Ford OASIS report, too. Here's the warranty claims:
-Nov '02: fuel pump replaced
-Jan '04: power steering pump replaced
-Oct '04: pinion bearings, pinion seal, and tracloc clutches replaced
-Oct '04: left front lower control arm replaced due to missing steering stop
-Oct '04: transmission output seal replaced
-Feb '06: cruise control harness replaced

Bout a two hour ride, give or take. Depends on where you're at. I'm in 07728. You'd come north on the NJ Turnpike to exit 7a, then take 195 East to exit 28b. I'm only a few miles from there.
