I'm getting a new TRUCK!!!

Yeah so listen to this...

I am in my freshman year of college at Mi Tech (woot woot) in the UP. My family has a tradition of providing vechilces to my brother and I until we graduate from college. He got a Ranger XLT and after he graduated I got it. It's a '02 and has been making some timing chain noise. Instead of taking a chance in fixing it or letting it go...

My mom decides to go to the dealership and check out trades and getting a new truck.

I'm getting a NEW Ford F-150 V8 lease for two years with the trade in from the Ranger. How's that for a fix it job. It breaks buy a new one lol!... Anyways just wanted to gloat is all.

Any ideas for colors? I can't seem to decide what I want. My new sportbike should fit in it nicely don't ya think...

So spoiled I know. And BTW I know some ppl's feelings towards Fords. We get a A plan discount so don't buy anything but 'em. So thanks but no thanks as to your feelings on them.

I'll never get another ford (nice trucks, just a fucking psycho-ass ex wife story there, lol) but the 5.4 is WAAAAAY better up here in AK, you use a lot less gas in the mountain passes....

Yeah things are really panning out for me. It is either black or red. No damn orange! We're gonna see how much custom paint is though.

5.4L V8 ought to use a lot of gas lol. Ahhh oh well its a new toy to go along with the bike.

The 5.4 will use less gas... More torque, less gear needed...
Custom paint?... Ahhh, I thought it was a lease?
