Excellent 1/2 Ton

Have only had this truck a week but already impressed. It's everything I thought it would be and then some. Drove an S-10 for a number of years and really appreciate the additional cab space. Considered a new Ranger but surprisingly was able to by a similarly equipped F-150 cheaper.
Brakes. Last 1/2 ton I owned was a '66 Ford. Going from 4 wheel drum to 4 wheel disk is an amazing eye opener. Cab space is excellent for 3 wide seating. This vehicle is also exceptionally quiet. The base vinyl seats are very well done. Everyone that has looked at the truck thinks they are leather.
None noted yet, though only have 300 miles in the seat. The 4.2 liter could get a little better mileage. Looks like I'm getting 15 in the city with the automatic transmission. Rated at 20 on the highway.
