You can buy my 1995 that's diesel and 4x4 for only a little more... ; )
But in all seriousness... It looks nice. Running boards off like others said.
And if you're worried about power, why 305 tires? That's a wider tire, requiring more power and adding more weight and drag. Have you considered a 285?
Little things like that could make a big difference.
Otherwise, I think the 5.4 should have enough power. After all they've been using them in SMB's for years.
You can always add power mods.
