I'm thinking of getting a new Lightning in gunmetal or white.
What do you guys think?

Are you talking about the current one or the 500 hp New generation one? I say go for the gunmetal one.

You never know. I mean if DUNG I mean Dod...ge makes that Viper Ram , then Ford would build thiers just to keep the title King of Sport Trucks

i just wish that gm comes out with a real 454 ss and then i might consider buying one. Maybe i should look into twinturbo ls6 powered sonoma built by john lingenfelter. I heard it almost embarrased handful of tuners at the supertuner challange.

I'm not 'sposed to speak on the matter 'cause my opinion of FURD is WELL known! But the lightning isn't bad....

i saw it parked in the dealer lot and i've fallen in love with it(gunmetal lightning that is). So i'm thinking of getting one in the beginning of summer time. Good truck to go on a road trip with a friend or two.

The lightning will get up and scoot pretty good for a truck

Plus i fell in love with superchargers ever since the gtp.
paying less than $200 for 45+hp is awesome.

the problem ive always had with fords was their piss-poor interiors...i like the styling on alot of their cars but once you get inside its a whole different story
