Roush Mustang vs. F150

Now guys I know that I was really interested in getting a PSD but now that that won't happen I need to determine which vehicle I will be pursuing next. Either a 2005 and up Stage 2 or higher Roush mustang or a 2005 and up F150 4x4 Lariat... I love driving fast but I want to go offroad. I want to be able to park everywhere and I want to go offroad. I am slightly leaning towards the mustang because you can always go fast, but what about those times when you want to go offroad... And the few ladies that are on here, i need your opinions too. thanks guys

That's a tough one. I used to have to have a 4-wheeler, but I never used them. I had a F-250 on 44's but sold it and got my Stang. I use the car for going fast way more than I went four-wheel'n.

i would go with the truck..... you can always make that truck fast by adding a supercharger.... i have a mustang an 03 mustang cobra that im selling and love going fast on it but i find driving my truck is way more comfortable...... plus that mustang is an easy way to get speeding tickets lol..... i would go with the truck... good luck... oh plus a stage 2 roush is just for looks.... your better off buying a gt and spending the extra money you were gonna use on upgrades..... you could always put an elenor body kit for it... cervins makes a nice one that looks really damb nice.... www.cervinis.com

Get a heat gun and take all the funky azz stickers off the roush, get a ballpean hammer and knock off the ground effects, or you could find a GT get your own blower, do your own suspension, and save about 15K.

Unless you also need to tow stuff in/to the dirt, get the 'Stang and find a "cheap" truck to take into the dirt.

I am kinda leaning toward the mustang right now. i don't ever tow. i just like going off-roading and thought that i would do it every weekend. but now i am realizing how little i will actually be going offroading. so i am leaning toward the stang for that reason. plus i love high performance. thanks for you opinions and keep 'em coming.

Why pay all that money for an F150? You can get a Diesel for a few pennies more. If you get the F150...first thing you have to do is get the Edge Evolution for it. They suck without a tune.
