Pickup_Man buys a pickup.

Illustration for article titled Pickup_Man buys a pickup.

Bought me a new truck last night! After searching for a while and passing on at least three otherwise perfect trucks because they smelled like smoke I finally found the one! 2014 F-150 FX4 with zero options. Crew cab, 6.5' bed, 5.0 with the E-locker, just shy of 91k miles and super clean for a midwest truck. There’s a couple things I’d prefer to be a little different, (column shift vs console shift, sliding rear window, blue), but it’s all minor stuff and I love it anyway. The goal is to get at least ten years or 250,000 miles out of it before the next one. I’ve always been good with maintenance, but I’m going to really try and keep up with rust prevention on this one. This is by far the nicest thing I’ve ever owned and I want to keep it that way for as long as possible.

And not that I post about my stuff much, but for anyone keeping count, this makes pickup #4. I didn’t get rid of my ‘99, it’s going to a friend’s place for an indefinite amount of time, and I’ve still got the ‘49 and ‘50 at Dad’s place, with a goal of getting the ‘50 in my garage by winter and getting that project started.
