Sometimes you just have to wonder WHY. Trying to frame the trunk and add a garbage can to a little commuter car? WHY?

He’s playing on the “tuners” who put big wings and coffee can exhausts on 4 bangers. So the 2x4 frame is a “wing”, and the trash can is supposed to be a loud “coffee can” aftermarket exhaust. You just can’t fix Stupid.

That right there is some "Kentucky go-fasters" on a budget!
Couldn't tell for sure if that 2x4 framing is the spoiler or a wheelie bar?

But still, this is all dependent on condition and mileage. Too much damage, and milage and a well taken care of XLT could bring more than a beat up, run down Lariat. We could argue the possibilities until the cows come home...
I’ve always figured ‘resale value’ as a selling point was spending a dollar to save a dime. Buy the vehicle you REALLY want, and drive the heck out of it…If you buy the WRONG vehicle and have to buy ANOTHER one as a result, you’ve blown the savings model entirely.

If you sat next to me not long ago and saw what the resale value was on my last vehicle your comment may have been vastly different.

I have a 2020 crew cab long bed F350 DRW 7.3 gas.with the same rear axle you’re looking at. I’m pulling a 41.5’ Montana weighing in at between 16K lbs and 18K lbs. We've pulled “the beast” to elevations right at 9,000 feet. It’s groaned a few times, never shown any real signs of stress. The 10-speed transmission works well and does a fair imitation of engine braking as well. On an up-hill day, we will get around 6 mpg to 7 mpg. On downhill days I’ve gotten as high as 14.6 mpg ( from Ruidoso to Carlsbad). Generally, though, I get 8mpg to 11 mpg on cross-country. I rarely move along faster than 65mph … usually 60 mph where permitted. I burn regular, but watch out in the high elevations where gas labeled regular is 85 - mot 87 - octane. You will be forced to opt for midgrade to get 87 octane and your owners guide states using less than 87 could forclose your warranty. My previous truck was a 1999 7.3 diesel pulling a 13,000 fifth wheel. I got a little better mileage with it when not pulling a trailer than I do with the 2020, but about the same when pulling. Also, my current ride has a 48 gallon tank versus the 35 in the diesel. I now can do a full day if towing with fuel left in the tank. Never could before. Hope this helps.
That is the kind of information I was hoping to get. Thank you very much. It also shows that the 7.3l gas fits our needs for the size we want to own. Plus, resale on this truck will hopefully be my daughters problem after we croak!
