A random thought

I think it'd be cool to convert a 4-door F-150 S'crew to a Lightning. Would be great for those of us with kids and dogs. Talk about a money pit though...

Just a random thought....

A man may smile and bid you hail
Yet wish you to the devil;
But when a good dog wags his tail,
You know he's on the level.

The newer HD's are blown, and IMO are a lot cooler/more unique than a Gen2 L.
I also think there were a few of those "Lightnings" made actually (SuperCrews).

They could be Supercab and 4WD and I'd be happy. But I agree - a Blown 5.4 in a Super Crew would be sweet.

I'm not real keen on the HD's. Yeah, they're snazzy, but, unlike Aaron, I like the Gen2 look better. JMO.

Main reason I don't care for the Gen2's is the cocky attitude of some of the owners (a decent portion IMO). Also the fact that people (not everyone obviously) used to "worship" them. It's not really that bad anymore, and most of the owners who've had them for a while aren't like that, but it's kinda like the 03' Cobra in that aspect anyways.
Still would rather own the HD, I would just get one that's not blinged out like some of them.
