Loaded, lifted, versatile, and affordable, this 1998 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat 4×4 has a touch of a monster truck look and a true go-anywhere ability
This truck has an instant presence. The red and silver two-tone shows all the right signs of being the original application. It continues to have an attractive and premium style because the mileage is quite low compared to what you usually find on F-150s from this era (a lot of the others have maximized the truck’s robust and useful reputation.) There’s the right Lariat premium style with pinstriping and chrome bumpers. But what you’ll really appreciate are all the features that make this truck large and in-charge. It comes from upgrades like the lifted 4×4 stance, billet grille, tubular steel side steps, color-matched fender flares, and big 20-inch Fuel wheels. And of course, there’s a ton of usefulness in this truck. You have a strong bed liner and a proper hitch on the back.
The interior is both versatile and comfortable. The extended cab has a rear half-door that gives you extra room to carry more people or a secure place to store your gear. Up front, are two high-back bucket seats with a center console in-between. A loaded modern pickup like this means you never go wanting for features. It includes power windows, power locks, power mirrors, a tilt steering column, and cold air conditioning. The stereo has been upgraded to a modern AM/FM/CD with Bluetooth. The driver’s seat is a command position with power adjustment, a tilt steering column, an airbag steering wheel, and a full gauge package.
Under the hood is Ford’s 4.6-liter modular V8, and this one has the clean and tidy look of a very original-style package. So that means you get a fuel-injected powerhouse that we now know is both versatile and hardy. It’s easy to get into four-wheel drive with the floor shift two-speed transfer case. And you have the lifted stance and Nitto Terra Grappler tires to maximize the off-road fun. The four-speed automatic transmission is long-haul ready with overdrive comfort. Plus, power steering, cruise control, power brakes with ABS, and front discs make for a solid total package.
