2002 Ford F150 Harley Davidson Crew Cab 5.4 Liter 351 cu in Supercharged from North America
Even if you must sell a kidney to get one, just do it
Nothing. This thing is not short on any level.
Perfect combination of power and poise. This thing rides better than any other full size truck, and out performs 9.9 out of 10 trucks I come up against, short of the SRT10 Dodge V10 500hp and some of my truck's sister models, the Ford Lightnings. Though I have installed a Diablo power chip, K&N induction system, which has bumped the horse power up from the factory 340hp to near 390hp. So some of those Lightnings are toasted unless they've done some performance modifications themselves.
This engine is happy to run, and after getting used to the whine of the supercharger spinning, you actually long to hear it. Though the gas mileage is poor at best, at 10-12 mpg. You must pay to play, and if you had a muscle car, you'd be at the same marks.
The 20 inch rims and tires really help this thing ride better and handle well. It could use just a little upgrade in the sway bars, as the higher speed turns lean a little. But you must remind yourself you're in a truck. So more than meets expectations in every area.
I've outrun BMW M5's, M3's, Ford Lightnings, Camaro's, Mustangs, Chevy SSR hard top convertible trucks, and a dozen other high end 4 door performers like Audi and Lexus on the highway. All taking a second glance as a truck leaves them sucking fumes. It's a blast.
Resale should do well, as the miles are low and this is not a primary driver. Though I'll have a tough time ever getting rid of her I'm sure.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

To the poster of the review; are you aware of your engine's size? The 5.4 liter (330 cu inches) Triton engine is more or less exactly that, just like a Ford 351 has around 351 cubic inches (5.752 liters) of displacement. The information you posted suggests that you have plus or minus 20 cubic inches/350 cubic centimeters.
