1998 Ford F-150 XLT 3dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB
This is truly one of the most reliable vehicles we have ever had in our drive way. Currently (2013) our truck has had nothing go wrong with it that was not related to poor ownership. First problem Fuel pump went, maitnence item that should have been replaced. As well as a belt that was not changed when it was suppose to and snapped on the road. Other than that, nothing! We bought the thing with 140,000 on it, now it has 200,000 and still runs strong, and starts everyday. We do not hesitate to take it on long trips (500 miles +++) and neither should you. The 4.6 is working harder then it use to, but that's just due to it's age. Nothing a tune up wouldn't fix. No intention of getting rid of it
Enough room in the front seats for tall men 6'2 plus. Plenty of leg and head room, with room to spare. The reliability is phenomenal and we just can't seem to part with this work horse. It never gives us trouble, and drives just as good as when we bought it. Several people will say "it's getting old, trade up" little do they know of how reliable of service has given us, and it doesn't ask for much.
That they don't still make this model of the F-150. Such a good looking body style, and they obviously done something right. We use this as a daily driver, and it never fails. Made it through one teen driver, and all my wear a tear driving back and forth to work everyday. Including 100+ temperature, and 0- temperature with lots of snow on the ground.
