For the 2006 model year beginning in December, 2005, a flex-fuel version of the 3-valve 5.4 L Triton V8 became available, and the SuperCrew model was made available with the 6.5' box. Also for the 2006 model year, an updated front bumper with circular fog lamps and a smaller bumper vent distinguished the 2006–2008 models from the 2004–2005 F-150. Other updates included improved front seats with more supportive side bolstering, and new 20" wheels available for FX4, Lariat and King Ranch. A navigation system became an option for the first time, being offered on the Lariat and King Ranch, as well as the all-new Harley Davidson trim. Not leaving the XLT unnoticed, Ford offered an XLT Chrome Package, also known as XTR in Canada, as well as a Lariat Chrome package. SIRIUS satellite radio became available on all trims except the XL. The FX4 became more upscale with a Luxury package, making it almost an alternative trim to the Lariat. A Harley-Davidson special edition was offered for 2006, being available in two- or all-wheel-drive, and only in SuperCab. Other mid-cycle refresh improvements included five-inch running boards, traction assist on 4x2 V8 models, and an all-new "Smokestone Clearcoat Metallic" paint on Lariat only.

Last time it worked was when I hit a u turn and had to reverse a little bit to complete the turn. After that i parked at home depot and when i was ready to go, no reverse. Had to push my truck out. This was a big problem all the forward gears worked just fine. Parking anywhere soon became a pain in the ass!!!!! what surprises me is the number of complaints same year same truck same problem but NO FACTORY RECALL!! 126 in (3,200 mm) (Regular cab 6.5' box) 133 in (3,378 mm) (SuperCab 5.5' box) 139 in (3,531 mm) (SuperCrew 5.5' box) 145 in (3,683 mm) (SuperCab 6.5' box and Regular cab 8' box) 151 in (3,835 mm) (SuperCrew 6.5' box) 163 in (4,140 mm) (SuperCab 8' box). I just bought a 2004 f150 in June of 2010 34,000miles and today dec 23,2010 at 57,000 the transmission would not engage while i was driving. Got it towed to a transmission repair shop as soon as i walked in the guy asked me what happened and said i know exactly what the problem is and preceded to tell me what the problem is. Then proceeded to show me a part on a diagram that he said ford took out of there transmissions in 2000 and he has seen this problem plenty of times. As a matter of fact he had an explorer outside that he just did the same repair to. Fords customer service said there is no recall and i am out of warranty. What a croc, luckily my transmission guy is going to put that plate on that ford took off in 2000 and said i should not have a problem again and if i do i am trading this baby in and going back to Chevy. Jeep Renegade Recall Issued Over Fuel Pump Failures. Purchased a 2004 ford f150 with 9000 miles in may 2010,[email protected] 15127 miles and the vehicle resides at the ford store in san leandro ca.Thought I woud need no extended warranty for a vehicle with this low of milage! Wrong.To add insult to injury they are trying to stick the knife in further by trying to take me for 4 Grand on a $2500 dollar job.I have emailed ford but so far they are in hiding.This is hard to stomach! Was thinking maybe there may be some way to file a law suit for all the people on this web site that have suffered as I and put those slime balls out of buissness.Maybe just maybe they built these 2004/2005 problem vehicles like this on purpose to hose us @ the dealership.Also the window regulator and the passenger power window controller went out.Would appreciate all Ideas to help Found On Road Dead customers! No one has added a helpful site for this 2004 F-150 problem yet. Be the first! OK bought the first set of tires for my 2004 F-150 SCrew FX4 last week and brought it to Hub City ford in Lafayette,LA to get a 4 wheel alignment. They tell me both lower ball joints need replacing,,,that didnt surprise me I knew the passenger side lower BJ was worn. So I let them replace and align and while mechanic was road testing my alignment the truck barely made it back to the shop. The service rep tells tranny is acting up and $225 to drop the pan and inspect after the $600 I spent on BJ's and alignment.. The tranny never gave me trouble while I was driving it I'm not wondering if there is something fishy going on here.. Other than a power window regulator I've had no trouble I had to pay for. I did catch a rear end problem that the warranty covered at 35600 (cut it razor close) but they completely rebuilt the rear end or they said they did. They did fix the issue. All of this with less than 500 miles total under a towing situation,,,,and then it was an empty trailer on top of that. I've hauled stuff in the bed but with a truck who hasen't? All I can say is if I need a rebuilt or new transmission I will be looking at another brand when it comes time. I've had several F-150s and a full size bronco back in the day and never had the kinds of issues with rear end and tranny Update from Oct 28, 2010: 2004 F-150 just bought 11/2 month ago from a dealer. Transmission blew out on freeway! Don't know whats its going to cost me but after reading all the complaints on Ford F-150s I'm sure it's going to be expensive! I hope Ford recalls all their Ford F-150 starting in 2004!! Bought my 2004 Ford F150, from a buddy. For years I had admired it. In 2009 and at 61,000 miles while he owned it; he got a new tranny with 100,000 mile, and/or 3 year warranty. ( that cost him $3,200) I thought it had failed due to a heavy trailer he had pulled, but the truck already had its first transmission changed prior and and so a second transmission on this vehicle. I purchased the vehicle from him in early 2010 with 72,000 miles. Now 13,000 miles past the warranty and just over 3 years the transmission has failed again. Don't know yet how much its going to cost, but I suspect somewhere in the $2,000.00 range, so now the truck looks like will have a third transmission on and/or rebuilt one. I decided to go on line to see if other people had trouble with vehicle and sure enough; there a numerous complaints of tranny failure, as well as some of same problems I have had. The engine has a noise, sounds like if were a diesel engine - do not even want to think how much it would cost to repair it. Just repaired the electric motor on the passenger and driver front window $170. Now I am thinking the truck no matter what will need a new tranny in future again. All I can say is that Ford, will not be my next truck. I hope there would b a recall before next tranny, but it seems from all the complaints - that no action will be taking by Ford. magazine's Truck of the Year for 2004.

Introduced as a 1993 model, the Ford SVT Lightning is a high-performance version of the F-150 that was produced by the Ford Special Vehicle Team ( SVT ). Intended as a competitor for the Chevrolet 454SS, the SVT Lightning was derived from the F-150; to improve its handling, extensive modifications were made to the front and rear suspension and frame. Powered by a 240 hp version of the 5.8L V8, the Lightning used a heavy-duty 4-speed automatic transmission from the F-350 (normally paired with the 7.5L V8 or 7.3L diesel V8).
