I am in no means a truck person. I only bought it because I was moving somewhere that is would be a good vehicle to have. I really wasn't expecting it to last 10 minutes, ha. But, here we are over 1 year later and the thing runs fantastic. I paid $1500 bucks for it with 128,000 miles on it, and everything works perfectly. The only problem i noticed is that if you try to speed up too fast...the transmission will jump a little. ha But, it is by no means a sports car...so you don't need to be doing that anyway.
How high up it sits. I feel like a king.
Idk. I guess a stronger transmission. But, Fords are notorious for junky transmissions, and everyone knows that. People still buy them anyway, so why rock the boat?
