A few weeks ago it dawned on me that I haven’t seen a tenth generation Ford F-150 on the road in a while. So I started looking for them, as well as older GM and Dodge trucks. So far, I have not spotted a single example. I’ve seen tons of 90s and early 00s GM trucks, and a fair amount of Rams (especially Cummins, I don’t think anyone will ever scrap one). But no ‘97-’04 F-150s, or any of it’s variants. Not a single one.

Anyone have any idea why? This body style was hot shit when I was in high school, making the competition look boxy and old. But they’ve all disappeared around here, while at the same time Chevy trucks from the 90s are ubiquitous.
