Bought this truck new in 11/99 there
has been no mechanical problems to
date. Came stock with Firestone
tires. Ford Gave me a set of Good
Year Wrangler RT's for free and
installed them. Only problem this
truck had was a MAF that was sticking
but that was fixed in 3/2002. and i
know alot of people think that 4.6L
motor is weak, well they are wrong.
this motor pulls a 5000lb 22 ft boat no
problem at 60-65 mph on the freeway
with over drive on at 1,800 rpm.
Roominess, center console. Handles
better than explorer. has better
turning radius than a 98-2001 Nissan
Do not restrict exhuast no need for
that coffee can muffler before the tail
pipe ends in the 2001, 2002 models.
luckily the 2000 didnt have that.
either way mine exhausts via flowmaster.
