Trading an 05 F150 for a Fox notch, advise!!
Hey guys I got a trade offer on my 05 F150 XLT super few with 73000 miles on the 4.6 engine. The offer is a 1990 mustang LX notch with a DSS 331 stroker, B303 cam, AFR 165 cc heads, Cobra intake, BBK CERAMIC longtubes and catted X pipe into Mac mufflers. Stock 5 speed and rear has 3.73 gears. The suspension is done too, koni shocks on lowering springs all around, subframe connectors and CC plate also tubular control arms. My question is would this car make a good DD? It has AC and the interior looks like new. The oil pan, a Moroso 7 quart has a small oil leak the owner can't seem to get rid of. Is this a good trade? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

What kind of value do you put on your truck? A notch like that, if its clean, are going for 6-7k up here in the rust belt.

Yeah you can daily drive them no problem, but lowered foxs ride like a box of rocks. Mines lowered 2" and I drive it every nice day I can. Its been a great, trouble-free car for 5 yrs now. If you've always wanted a fox, I'd say sure, do it. But if you like your trucks versatility, reliability, quietness, well only you can decide. Good luck

You'd be trading for a vehicle 15 years older that's rather highly modded. How well do you know the car and the guy wanting to trade?

Will this be your only car or do you have something else for a back up vehicle? I would imagine gas mileage isn't all that great, but who buys a hot rod for mileage? LOL

Just something to think about before pulling the trigger. Seems you have a pretty nice truck but you only live once, just don't want to see you get burned on the deal.
