    I know this is a "snow plowing website" but I am shopping for a new F150 for a daily driver and NOT for plowing.

    What motor do you have?


    And what 4x4 locker?

    How do you like it?

    I currently drive an 04 XLT extended cab with 4x4, 5.4, 3.73 and Limited Slip. I see they now have an e-locker instead of the LS. What are the pros and cons of an e-locker over the LS?

    I do some mild towing of 21' tandem axle boat trailer and enclosed snowmobile trailer. What 4x4/motor/rear end option(s) is best for getting up a wet boat ramp, sled trailer on snowy conditions and/or up an un-plowed camp driveway, and into and out of muddy goose/duck hunting fields?

    Thanks guys!
