Holy overpriced Batman! That better come with a fatboy for that price! The crazy thing is given the limited production they will probably sell for over msrp. I’m not trying to be a hater but the Harley appliqués look very cheap to me and the ford interior is a bit dated for that $$. I do like the seats. Still you can get a whole lot more for you $$$ elsewhere (like Ram!)

Its mighty expensive for something based on a Lariat and I can't say I'm very impressed by it.

In fact, just been on the Ford website and I had a job to get over $57K with just about every option. I'd want a bit more than shiny primer, some orange badges, alloys, cat back exhaust and dull grey alcantara with unimaginative diamond stitching for $40K!!! Oh and I forgot the impractical hard tonneau cover, I laughed when the guy said you wouldn't get your Harley in the back then.

Of course, if people were to spend that sort of extra cash to mod a Lariat they couldn't use the Harley badges so I'm sure they'll be very popular.

I'm not a Harley fan either. Not at all.

Could this be a "feeler" truck? All of the brands say they haven't found the ceiling for what people will pay for a premium truck. It's debatable how premium this truck is, but seems like a safe way to test the waters.

One of the DUMBEST marketing moves Ford ever made in my opinion was replacing/discontinuing the SVT Lightning's in 05 but keeping the "Harley Davidson Edition" Trucks

Talk about alienating a huge chunk of people that don't ride nor care for Harley's,

This thing is WAY over priced and is it even Supercharged?!

Maybe if Ram brings back an SRT Truck Ford' will bring back a Lightning

I watched the TFL video and the truck on the show didn't even come with a factory installed brake controller. For 97k, I'd expect it to have one. Somebody with 97k would probably want to tow their Harley's with their new truck. But no, you gotta add something on to the already ridiculous sticker. That's about 25k more than a fully loaded Raptor. Two completely different buyers and vehicle segments but that is crazy.

Ford had a couple of garbage engines, no offense if anyone owned one of these. The 5.4L the lightning was based on was one.

I won't lie, it's a nice looking truck. Love the sound. But Jesus almost $100,000 for it! I'll stay with my Ram Sport-Rebel and upgrade the exhaust lol

Yeah I had a 5.4 in a ‘06 F-150 and didn’t have it long enough to have any problems. It was ok powerwise for that time. My dad currently has a ‘05 F-150 with the 5.4 with over 225,000 miles and hasn’t had any problems, lucky I guess. On the other hand, a friend of mine and a neighbor to the north both have had the 5.4 and have had multiple issues with them. Back in the day they both always and only had Ford. They also both had 2003 Ford’s with the 6.0 diesel. Nothin but trouble. One actually had to have two motors replaced before 80,000 miles. Back in 2012 they both bought new Ram 2500’s with the Cummins and they still have them today!:unsure:o_O

It's not a Ford product. It is an aftermarket company that does it. Hence the cost. I'm sure Ford could've done it FAR cheaper!!

225,000 on a 5.4 seems pretty darn good. I'd guess your dad does a great job of vehicle maintenance.

He has been fortunate. Truck is rusting out in places, and has had a new tranny but the engine has been good, surprising. Kinda like a few of those 6.0 stock powerstroke unicorns out there with over 200,000 miles.
