1998 Ford F-150 XLT 3dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB
I bought this truck with 10,000 miles on it and it all started there. I tow 10,500 lb. trailers, hunt, fish, go to the beach with my truck and use my 4wd quite a bit. And it always gets me home. With a grand total of 152,045 miles on the odometer I feel it's just getting warmed up. All ive ever had to do was replace a window lock switch back in 99. I drive her a bit hard, use that 5.4 Triton like it's supposed to be used. My transmission is rock solid and so is the motor. I change my oil every 3,000 miles and transmission fluid every 30,000. Ford trucks are tough. Ive had some Dodges do the same but Fords are great.
Power, rock solid reliability, capabilities, great payload, nice 4x4 system, comfortable seats.
I guess gas mileage. I get 18mpg on the highway, but they've already fixed that with the new ones. Thanks for for making such a solid vehicle.
