I have owned this truck for as long as I can remember, and it has only needed regular repair. The 5.4L could pull Chuck Norris in half if it had to. I tow snowmobiles every weekend for four months of every year in harsh MN winters, and I have done all of it in my 97. Nothing compares in power and comfort, and I would look to buy another one if this one dies
5.4L engine, extremely sturdy front and rear bumpers (hit a deer at 80 last year, only a small dent), hauling capacity, steel rims
17" rims, "Check Engine" light seems to come on an awful lot
