Getting more on trade than what you paid is unheard
of!  Good for you.  I think you had said you got
special pricing IIRC when you bought the Lightning,
but still ... makes it *far* easier to justify trading
so soon!

Was it the SVT version (or did Ford even make any
other version than the SVT Lightning - pardon my
ignorance)?  So you went from turbo-charged to
supercharged and now your on to NA ... very eclectic! 
There's a Lightning owner who crosses paths with me
almost every morning in the opposite direction as I
drive down our mountain on my daily commute, I think
he traded out of a pretty white Mustang for it (at
least he doesn't drive the Mustang any more).  It's
funny that on snow days, he's driving an old F-150 up
the hill!

Lot more car in the sense of size? gadgets/goodies? or
overall performance?

Perma-grin machines!  I destroyed my trunk lid last
month on garbage day (stupid garage door!) and now I'm
"de-badged" in the rear as I didn't pay the extra to
have the badges transferred or even new ones affixed. 
It's nice to hear someone ask, "What kind of car is
that?" when they see it from the rear ... I answer
with a grin, "A fast one."

While the platforms may differ, there *must* be some
common topics that could cross over forum boundries.
Dang boundries! :)
