This is the 1st 4x4 I've owned, and so
far it's been 100% reliable.. no
rattles, squeaks etc from it. I've had
it on a few off road excursions,
ranging from graded gravel roads, to
gooey mud.. The stock tires leave a
little to be desired in the mud, but
were still able to get me through a
mudhole that covered the hood with
mud/water. I do wish that Ford had
installed a torsen differential in the
rearend on it, but since they didnt' I
plan on installing a ARB air locker..
the 9" of ground clearance is nice, and
the 5 speed auto tranny works quite good
