    I have a 1985 F150 and a 1997 F150. I have to get rid of one of them and don't know what one to choose. The 85 is a shortbed 4x4 (regular cab) with a lift and all terrains, and a 351. It is in good shape for its age. Of course it has some minor things wrong with it since it is over 20 years old. Or I could choose the 97 that is 2wd, lariat edition(leather interior, 6 cd changer, air), 5.7L with just under 100k miles. They both get about the same gas mileage.


    What would you choose? Basically I have to decide do I want a 4x4 reg. cab with less "comfort" features, or do I want a 2wd extended cab with air.

    The 97 is probably a better daily use truck

    I'd keep the 85. That's my favorite F150.

    I think I might keep the 85. I could get more money out of the 1997 anyways and I can use that money for a bike. The 85 is my first 4x4 I have owned, so I might as well get my use out of it.
