Buying a ford with 63K supercharged miles?

Handy with a wrench I hope!


All kidding aside, should be a fun truck.

Can you say, "Rode Hard and put up wet!" LOL

I don't know, seems reasonable, but all and all, It's a FERD!!!

Good luck, and like Adavis99 said, Keep some tools handy!!

Someone told me a long time ago never buy a used Lightning due to the 'beat on' factor. Hopefully it is good to you as a toy. Should be fun to drive otherwise.

If the truck is from a 55-65 year old man and looks cared for I'd maybe think about this truck. If it's from a dealer I'd run, unless it has a NEW drive train.
The only time to buy any performance vehicle is when it's new. More than likely this truck has been driven to it's limits.

#1 DISGUSTING..........Too Over done for my likes......
#2 Looks like its a Beat vehicle.....Tell you why....
Reasons: It looks like a younger owner....takes all the short cuts to make it look fast ...IE:altezza's, rear wing, Hood...all yuck BTW IMHO
But overlooks important cleaning of crucial parts LIKE the engine bay....
I like the lightnings believe it or not, if done right and, taken care of.
I would look this over very very well....

Those tail lights are factory on a lightning, and very expensive. My uncle had his stolen out of his lightning. 450 each!!

I personally think that is a lot of $$$ for a almost 6 yr old truck with 63.5k on it, performance or not...

Hell, you can buy a brand new stripped KC for about that and bolt on some parts to make it FLY! Plus, it would have it's entire warranty on it...

Just my thinking...

I thought when you said toy you meant something like a jet ski or a big bike or something like that. Somehow a ford p/u is not exactly what I had in mind. But hey it's your money do as you wish with it hope you have tons of fun with it.

You have to weigh the pro's and con's. Some good advice would be to not spend that much money on a performance oriented vehicle with that much miles on it. Most likely that Lightning was abused a good bit sometime within that 63,500 miles. IMO for that truck, mileage would be a big deciding factor. Also how many previous owners, how the engine bay looks, what modifications it has etc. Theres bound to be some L's with less milage for around the same price, check on the L's forums for advice on what too look for when buying one. Heres a couple of L's you might want to look at just to compare.
