I have owned this truck 2 times! i have the 351W 5.8L motor, auto trans, xlt with buckets. love the color, the simplicity of the interior and exterior (easy to clean) and the overall comfort at 75MPH. the seats tend to show wear and tear easily however. for a 351W it should have more power than it does, and the fuel economy is horrible for around town driving. the push button 4WD is great in winter, and the legendary heater and A/C is second to none. i think the suspension on these are weak for the weight of the truck though, bu they fixed this with the 97 and up models. all in all it has been a great truck... never failed to start or so much as even a sputter from any cylinder. recommended!
push button 4WD, fast power windows, simple interior controls, silver interior bucket seats, the 351W motor, leg room in back seat incredible for a supercab truck of its year, comfortable highway ride.
lack of power for the motor, cheap interior components (door panels, fabric on seats, etc.), poor primer coat causing flaky paint (mine has been repainted), mileage of course, out-dated gauge cluster, and poor suspension.
