I have a 2008 f150 with the 5.4 with 175k. I have worked the truck hard. Changed spark plugs at 120k with no issues and 1 coil pack. Biggest issue being in Alaska is power steering hoses have all been replaced once and now with Arctic grade hoses. With routine maintenance it's been a great truck and would definetly buy it again.

I bought one last June. Itís got some minor issues but nothing to cry about yet. Bought it to keep the miles off my Ď18 Silverado and not beat it up for work. Itís an Ď04 I think. Maybe an Ď06. Canít recall at the moment. Iíve put almost 20k miles on it since June. Canít complain too much. Does need timing chain replaced this coming spring and itíll probably get the plugs done at the same time but Iím not overly concerned yet. If it dies, Iíve pretty much gotten my moneyís worth already.


I keep desperately hoping that one day someone will call me "Sir" without adding "please calm down" or "you're causing a scene."

There were I believe two 5.4l 3 valve engines. The easiest way is to look at the 8th digit of the VIN number. The most common VIN code for the 3 valve is 5, for the life of me I cant remember the other.

Yep, you don't need another truck, you need a different mechanic.


I think you may be right. If I bought the F150, which I've decided not to do, I would have to beef up the springs in the front end to handle the Boss plow I have on the W350. As I said, the Dodge hasn't even got 100,000 miles on it. I'll have to try some other mechanics.
