now thats a buy. o did u mentioned when she finally went she had 270000.
the guy before me was no saint with her and neither was i
xl with a 5.0
I inherited this truck from my grandfather after he passed away. I got it in 2005 and it had less than 50k miles on it. It just now hit 93k. It had been babied until I got it and since has been used as a daily driver. I would say that this is a highly reliable truck. Mine has the 4.9L I-6 in it, which is the better motor. Although it is not easy on the gas, better than the V8 though, and alittle underpowered for serious hulling and highway use, it is a great everyday, in-town driver. Mine is in great shape, and only recently starting to show rust. I still have people checking my truck out and commenting on how nice it is. They don't build them like that anymore! A+ Ford!

I've had this truck for the last 11 years and it's been a reliable, tough truck. I have had very few problems and they have been minor. The motor, tranny, and clutch have never needed any work done to them. The chassis is extremely strong and the truck rides well. Never needed front wheel alignment. Interior still looks good and the exterior paint still shines. I admit I have taken very good care of it. Built like a tank.

Great truck. If it layed down today it
would not owe me a dime. I have owned
it for 11 years. It had 16k miles when
I bought it, now has 117k, only paid
$12.5k loaded out. Best vehicle
purchase I ever made. Wow, can it pull
a boat. Used to pull my 3500 lb ski
boat through the Ozarks and pass cars
going uphill with the a/c blasting-temp
gauge stayed perfect. No rust problems-
spent most of it's life up north. When
this one gives up I would like to buy
another just like it-only a different
color-after 11 years I am really tired
of the 2 tone brown. I call it the
milky way on wheels.

A great truck built like a tank but
suprisingly quick. Mine has the 5.0
(302) and it is a great motor, it gets
this beefy truck moving pretty
quickly, this engine is a torque
monster with good horsepower. My truck
has a great highway ride with plenty
of passing power. It can also do
smokey burnouts if the need arises.
