This is a good overall truck, with the exception of the bed. The tailgate will not handle very much weight at all. 100 12' 1x4's bent the heck out my tailgate, can't even shut it now. Ford refused to do anything for me. It is obvious to me these trucks are geared more towards SUV status than work trucks anymore.
No one item sticks out to me here.
Put some stiffeners in the tail gate and beef up the bed. Mine is full of dents from simple use of it!
