This truck was either a lemon or a truck that had some really hard miles. I bought it used and it ended up needing a lot including, new starter, new clutch, new steering box, rebuilt rear end, new oil pan, new leaf springs and mounting brackets and it is rusting apart. Has only 98000 on it too.
When it runs right it is a great truck. I like the overall design, dual fuel tanks, nice wheels, cloth seats give a nice ride
Ford needs to fix their bed design so there is less rust in the wheel wells. Rusting problems need looked at. A slower granny gear would be nice. Better fuel economy.
