Plus they inflate the sticker price to comical level in the hopes some idiot will stroll in and pay that.

Seriously. A new 4x4 XLT F150 can be had for mid $30s

I bought a 2wd XLT super crew in 2017 for 31k. It was a loaner/program vehicle with 4200 miles on it.

Exactly, and an XLT is nicely equipped. That’s a good price for a good truck.

Not when you factor in the price of oil changes

“Well I could buy the XL but I think I’ll gwt the platinum 4x4 that I’ll engage one time because it’s not THAT much more.”

Decisions folks.

Trucks just have a lot higher trims than they used to. I could afford one but I'm just not willing to spend that much. An XLT, SLT, LT has all of the options I need.

Lol oil changes. Tell me. How many oil changes Your gas engine will have vs my diesel?

My diesel will outrun gas engines by 150k miles easy.

You’ll trade in a gas engine at or before 100k when I am just getting warmed up.

Yeah, I put 125k on a Dodge Dakota and never did anything but change the oil. Still had the original brake pads on it

I used to say I’ll never not buy the lower trim model truck until I bought my current truck. Those AC seats are like having little fairy’s blowing on your balls on a hot South LA day.

For the record your have to leave the FRC pants at the plant and drive home in your underwear to get the full experience.

Rize, I hate to sound like this is a subtle brag because it isn't (and I'm not OT rich) but I could easily afford a 50k truck. It's just not my thing. The 30-35k models have all I really care about tbh.

My girlfriend is driving a quad cab XLT as a loaner till the dealership she got her car from figures out what they're going to do with her old car...long story. Anyways, it's not bad compared to my Sierra SLE. My only gripe is that it doesn't have electronic seat adjustments like mine does and to be honest not a fan of the response of the EcoBoost as well as that start/stop nonsense. It...it just doesn't feel right but that's a personal preference. Other than that, it's really not a bad truck at all.

That and I'm kinda miffed that most of not all the XLT trim models I looked at in a 50 mile radius had the basic radio rather than the optional infotainment system with CarPlay/Android Auto when shopping several months ago. Every mid-tier Chevy and GMC I looked at did.

re: Current Truck Market—- Any Changes?
My truck has the auto start/stop. I usually just leave it on but during the summer I turn that shite off. It gets hot quickly in a vehicle in South Louisiana at a red light

I'm not a huge fan that feature can't be permanently disabled without a custom tune.

That’s okay we can take mine to pick up the crawfish for the neighborhood boil.

Let's do it. I will offer my house as tribute.

They are getting big now though. Had some last weekend from La Cajun Seafood on Coursey and most were bigger than I prefer.

I have a 2011 Tundra and some of these "improvements" have me thinking I'll hold on to it for the foreseeable future.

I’m in! I’m taking a few OB members to South Texas next weekend but I’m open after that.
