I love my truck! It is so much fun to drive and comfortable to boot. The engine is plenty powerful for all applications and the truck can haul some mega weight. The only complaint I have is the back window which leaks in around the seals. Apparently it was a design flaw by Ford and can be fixed easily at a glass place (providing you have the money to do so!). As far as the gas mileage, it's what you would expect for a truck (*slurp**slurp*).
I really enjoy having the 8 foot bed on the truck. I also like the room in the rear of the cab.
Better fuel economy, different back window design so it won't leak and a tighter turning radius.
