    I have a 2005 F150 with the 5.4 engine. No problem yet at 107,000 miles but I do hear a rattle some mornings

    due to the fact the 5.4 has had several issues snd Ford never did a thing to address the problems I will probably never buy a new Ford truck again. Another Mustang perhaps 2 years ago I bought a new Silverado. I like it better anyway

    Finally was able to pick up my 2012 Ram 3500 and trailer from the lower 48 and drive it home to Alaska. Drives and tows great. I think I'm losing a u joint in the driveshaft though. I can hear it and felt some shuddering while towing around 9K with a Jeep,a two bikes and a SXS in the trailer. IMG_20200823_135136326_HDR.jpg

    Around here used prices are just stupid high, like $25k+ for a truck with well over 100k miles and these are 1/2 ton trucks. BIL has a neighbor that's a finance guy for a ford dealer and had a brand new f150 with the 5.0 and listed at $43k so bet you could drop it to $37k.

    I've heard you can dump a quart of transmission fluid in and the detergent will free them up, try it next oil change and see if it works.

    Mine. Just recently picked up the canvas topper. Rolling it safari style for now. Once the weather gets wet, I’ll put the sides and back flaps on. Next up is a level kit and UCAs. Then some off road lights on the front. Mostly because I’m shallow and think they look cool.

    My local market is crazy too. $10K+ for any 2000's LS era chevy 1/2 pickups with under 200K miles. Most are in kinda rough shape.
    My dad just picked up a immaculate condition, fully optioned( Car phone!) 1998 ext cab K2500 4x4 with 102K for $6500 and I think that was a rare, better jump on it ASAP deal anymore in the condition it's in.
    A coworker is selling a 2000 chevy 2500 4x4 with 300K and a lot of really bad body damage( interior is pretty bad too), getting offers around $3500-4000 for it.

    It's an indication of inflation. I shudder to think of replacing my '97 F250... IMG-20190430-WA0001.jpg

    I sold my 98 just like your dads only a 1/2 ton with similar mileage in 2010 for $4k, I bet my 06 would get some pretty penny but to replace it would be expensive as heck. Also the miles people put on in a few years is crazy.

    I've also noticed as probably next year I want upgrade cars and even they are trending up in prices.

    Damn, I was given this ‘01 1500 a couple months ago. It runs great, although I just rebuilt the whole front suspension and replaced door hinges. It’s my new commuter to save miles from my nice truck.

    New car prices are setting records right now. While sales are down 20%, the price per sale is at an all time high. Covid changed the dynamics. Those that weren't affected by the crisis (in an industry where they could work from home) are taking advantage of cheap money and buying big. Those that lost their jobs or are lower earners are out of the market.

    It is trickling into used cars as well. The used market is the biggest driver of inflation right now. When people get priced out of the new market, they buy used, which drives up prices in that market too.

    The has been a hot topic in the business sector lately. Unprecedented times.

    Kinda like the housing market, prices are thru the roof and people cant buy enough thou I'd say the truck/suv market was crazy way before this.

    Car prices are definitely high to but since they are not "cool" theres deals to be had and in the case of some they drop value so fast you can get used at a great price. In 05 my grand am was $21k new, a Impala is around $30k and you get so much more car. My plan is next year or so I want to get a really good used one, leaning towards a CPO and not sure if it pays to fly to southern Indiana or Kentucky to get one not in the rust belt.

    Ain't that the truth! I figured it was an intervention because I got rid of my Superduty and they thought I was going down a bad path in life.

    I'm really impressed with the new ones, time will tell if they stepped up their quality control to go with the better cabs.

    One of the car haulers we use at work had 570k on his Cummins powered ram dually. He sold it in another state. Only problems he had with it were emissions/DEF/DPF system related.

    I've been watching the used prices on both my 1 ton and my Tacoma rise lately.

    I'm so glad we got the Ford F350 when we did, and for what we paid, today If I wanted to sell it I'd make a couple of grand easy.

    We bought the Taco new in 03 as a loss leader, If we sold it today we would only see about $9K in depreciation for 17 years of driving. I can live with $44 a month to have the use of that truck...
