    Bought a 1990 F-150 the other day. It is 10 times better than my Chevy. Granted it is 17 years newer too, hehe. I love the truck. It only has 79,978 miles on it. Can you imagine?

    Anyways, i love the truck. It drives well when under NO load or anything. I have ZERO complaints about that. When i drive around town with my trailer hitched up it does fine, but when on the free way i am fighting to get above 55 or so.

    I have changed everything i can think of to date. New fuses, oils, filters, gaskets, screens, and so forth. Granted, i have NOT changed the wires and plugs yet, but was waiting for more $$$ to fall my way.

    Any tips or thoughts on this?

    Stay off the freeway...

    Just kidding. Is it gas or diesel?

    Sounds like a 302 with wrong final gear ratio or too big of tires.

    Is it all stock? 4x4? lift kit? anything like that?
