1998 Ford F-150 3dr Extended Cab SB

Review

I really like my F 150 and have believed that Ford has always produced a superior truck. However, to my surprise, shortly after the warranty expired, I have had to replace the rear axle seals and a tie rod end which happened to shear off and punch through the drive side rim at 5 kilometers per hour (good thing I wasn't travelling any faster. Surprise, FORD has yet to recall this vehicle for this problem. I have been told by numerous TOW TRUCK operators that this SAFETY Concern is a common occurrence.

Best Features

Other than above, I really enjoy the ride and capabilities of the truck.

Worst Features

Mr. FORD recall this vehicle before someone DIES. For a heavy half I would not recommend this as a working truck.
