Thinking about buying one. What are your thoughts on this truck?
Are you talking about a 1st gen or a 2nd gen?
I have owned a 2nd gen for more than a year and I love the truck. Its a bad ass vehicle.
Best sport truck out there. Great in every aspect except fuel mileage.
2nd gen. 2000 to be exact.
the 00/99 are different from the 2001-2003. they have a 80mm MAF, iron driveshaft, smaller intercooler and a couple of other things to make them slower. But there has also been suspicion that they have stronger rods than the 01-03. but for the most part, you can make a 00 as fast as a 01-03. Depends on what mods you go with. and with the tuners, anyone is as good as the next. the top dogs are JDM, PSP and a few more. But over all, I have been very happy with my Lightning.
Thanks for the info
they kick ass...that is all you need to know
Might want to wait for the next gen to come out. They're talking about 500hp.
Awesome truck, I'd buy one but I'd end up sinking too much of my mustang's mod money into the truck
Lets not forget the older ones stripping the spark plugs out of the heads :eek2: I believe the 99/00 were the years that did that.
I'm not much for Fords, but I think the Lightning is bad ass
