Ford F150 Farmers Work Truck

Dealership in Kansas offering a customized work truck for farmers. Would you buy it I would except there would be no storage as in the extended cab where you put things and still cannot find them.

It's a five nine five nine nine package, so no.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

It's a nice idea, the dealer is smart.

A grille guard, wheels and tires, and a leveling kit cost a whole lot less than $6000 though.

Maybe but you forgot about the decal. That thing was sweet.

If they wanted to make a "basics" kinda truck, first thing to do away with are headlights and tail lights that are $300 a piece and put standard 5x7 sealed beams in.

If you have to have a sticker that says Cattleman... you ain't no Cattleman. :cowboy:

I like that the dealer is trying to accommodate farmers and ranchers. They made some good calls on the 5.0 vs EcoBoost. A 3/4 with the the big gas motor and a full replacement would be even better. The sticker is nonsense though.

Tires, wheels, leveling kit, tint, bedliner, and grill guard... plus labor from dealer... factoring in you never pay advertised price and they are in the business of making money... that's not a bad price. Doubt many farmers or ranchers bite on it though.

I don't understand the draw of the fancy wheels and tires on a "work" truck??? The brush guard, bedliner and leveling kit (maybe) I can understand, though.

Something I found funny: When you go to the dealer's website and look at pics of the truck, it has roll up windows but still has the dash mounted electronic 4wd knob. Personally, I'd rather have power windows and the floor mounted 4wd shifter.

Don’t have to see more than “f150” before I say NO.... and not because it’s a Ford. Make it at least a 250 before you slap a farm ( or work ) truck label on it. :2cents: :2cents:

That’s true. More payload would be a must.

My truck say Lariat on the side but they doesn’t make me a rope so I better pass on one that says “Rancher”.

I may have not heard right in the video but I think they said they could also do a F250 version also.

Would be brain dead if they didn’t. :2cents: I’m sure their is a market for single cab half ton trucks but it probably is more likely to be commercial rather than farm and ranch. Even then...I have friends that started their own construction company and bought half ton trucks for everyone. It was during the $4 gas era, but within a few years they were back in 3/4 ton trucks.

I bought a near wore out truck last year for the sole purpose to pull trailers. Probably won’t ever get much over 50 miles from home and I don’t need a luxury land yacht for that. Would like to update my 15 year “go to town” Toyota Tundra, but I want something flashier for that. :cboy: :lol:

I like the ideal of a work truck without all the bells and whistles.
