    Thanks for all the feedback, I made the trade and drove home the beast Monday. All I can say is I’m in love!

    CONGRATS ON YOUR NEW TRUCK!

    IIRC the only real issue with the 5.4 is the spark plugs tend to ruin the heads when extracted. I think I read there was like a 25% chance of cracking or stripping the aluminum. 25% doesn't sound like bad odds until you figure out there are eight of them.

    This was really only an issue on the earlier 3v motors. By 2010 they had been upgraded.

    OP- good looking truck. Like the bumper! Congrats.
