Thinking about trading in the Powerstroke.

Well after my wife got stranded by the truck last week and we ended up having to go and get it, it left a bad taste with her.. So when we went to pick up the truck last Saturday she saw an 08 Harley edition F150 in the showroom.. We figured out the numbers and are considering doing it.. It has the 5.4 with the supercharger.. Now I love the Powerstroke, but we don't really haul anything. I am finding it very hard to make this decision. The Harley ford is very nice.. I can't afford to get the new Harley F250 or I would look into that one. Plus the salesman says it has 450HP and would leave my PS in a cloud of dust. Of course he doesn't know about the SCT and I didn't argue with him as I still have my 100,000 mile warranty.. So what do you guys think.. I know you are biased but please try to be honest..

Looking to buy again

Cars/Trucks break down... they're man made.

What's she going to do when that 5.4 spits a spark plug through the hood?

I can tell u from my position that i have already done what you are getting ready to do. Only i bought a Lightining and guess what. My New 04 6.0 will be here Tuesday or Wednesday already paid for and lightining is gone. So its up to you its your money but i am tellin you from what i did and it just costed me more money in the long run.

ill never buy a gasser for myself to drive but in all honesty the 08 F150 would be nice. 450hp is a lot of horse for a stock truck. Plus u have all the goodies in the harley edetion and on top of that its an 08 so you have all new warrantees and everything. The 5.4's are good motors too. At least your staying with the right company!
