I've had this 10 year old truck for 2.5
years, and I absolutely love it!! If
it got better gas mileage, it'd be the
greatest vehicle ever. I've hauled 2.5
yards of mulch in it, towed trailers,
and the previous owner towed his boat
to the beach regularly; and the truck
still runs perfectly. He and I have
replaced very few items on it, and it
still runs like new. It's extremely
comfortable and reliable. I plan to
keep it another 10 or 15 years.
And since it's such a popular vehicle,
tires and many other accessories are
fairly inexpensive. Also, it has a
good safety rating. No body makes
trucks better than Ford.
Inexpensive tires. Super Cab bench
seat. Dual gas tanks allow me to go 2
or 3 weeks between gas station visits.
I love manual transmission, but the
automatic is very convenient. Got it
used and got a great price on it. Used
is the way to go.
I bought this truck last year/03 and
since then I have rebuilt the trans and
the engine is bored over .60 and has
forged pistons, headers, racing cam. new
brake system, new suspension/front and
rear, also new tires and rims,
the power. it's my hod rod
the only thing left to do is very little
body work and a paint job, and the paint
is not the bad either.
