I have an Explorer as my daily driver, but like to have a pickup for weekend hauling and to have a third vehicle between the wife and I. I had a '97 F150 that I really liked...regular cab, long box, five-speed manual transmission...but that drowned in the floods here in Nebraska last spring. After getting settled, it was time to look for another. Picked this one up today...2000 F150 Lariat with 177k on it. Really nice condition. Nothing fancy, but just what I was looking for.
