Joe,
Go to www.fordvehicles.com and start pricing trucks. We bought a '02 Explorer with the class III tow package. It is a six cylinder, but came with a 3.73:1 limited slip rear end. You don't have to have an eight cylinder to get good gears.

WHOA! Thanks y'all. Only thing I've been able to find the 3.73s in so far is the Harley and the SVT Lightning! Oh, man, the 5.4 with 3.73s.....

I went to ford.com and built a vehicle, but when I got to the end they wanted my address, phone number, all that crap before I could get a price.

I just want a working number. Once I get near there, then I don't mind submitting all my info to them.

Thanks!

Joe,
You can also find a dealer near you through the Ford website. Then check dealer inventory to see if they have a truck with all the options that you want. That is how Terri and I found our Explorer. That is also how we found out it was a Demo with only 155 miles on it. We got it for 1% over dealers invoice!

90% of the Ford dealers now have inventory online so finding what you want no problem..Oh BTW..the F150 is getting a seat change and one of the upgrades is a sensor in the passenger seat which will turn off the airbag if it notes a weight of less than 60 pounds present..so with the children you now have no worry about the airbag..but be sure to check to see if the F150 you pick has the new seat.

PS The wife Q.A. (or Q.C's) the center section..LOL..the console

I've had good luck with edmunds.com also. MotorTrend used to have a nice CarWizard, but that seems to have disappeared.

I took my laptop in with me to negotiate on the Expedition. They didn't know what hit 'em!!

Unlike some, I actually like playing the bartering game!!

I do too! Sometimes. I bought the Mustang via the internet at an pre-agreed-upon markup rate. All I did was go down, pick out the car, and fill out papers. Very fair, sanitary, and civilized.

BUT the car before that -- I have this leather, I guess you call it a portfolio (holds a pad of paper, brochures, pens, calculator, etc.) which I call my car buying folder. Into it I placed all the info on the car I was interested in -- bluebook printouts, etc. Flopped it open on the salesman's desk so he could see what's inside. Had an amortization program keyed into my HP scientific calculator. Any time he'd try to talk monthly payments, I'd steer it back to talking bottom line, and whenever I'd get a price, I'd run it through the program. He'd see the display flash running.. running.., and then my face would go sour when it spit out the result. The guy I bought that car from remembered me years later as the hardass nerd with the calculator.

I love it, though, because the game is played by a predictable set of rules. The game can be fun when you know how to play it (not fun if you don't). The three trips to the manager's office which are supposed to make you uncomfortable or impatient? Phhht! I wander around the lot and make them come find me to steer me back away from the way cheaper car that I have seemingly suddenly become intensely interested in, since I had all that time to kill while the manager and the salesman were sitting around having a cuppa joe.
