I am the original owner. This truck has lived up to its maker's name ... Ford Tough. The brake problems that plagued earlier models is gone. This truck has no rattles. It pulls and pulls. I have the original batteries and they are still good. I have carried 4000 lbs in the back with no problem. I highly recommend this as a work truck for anyone as it has been reliable. The only repairs I have done are a starter relay, brakes, shocks, and glow plug relay. Thats it!
Good looking, comfortable interior, always starts. Gets pretty good fuel mileage of 16.5 overall. Stops very well for a big truck.
The autolocking hubs stink! If you are stuck, you must move forward 4 feet to engage. I have had to have them replaced under warranty one time. Oh, yea, the fuel gauges. Ford still can't get this one correct. They stopped working.
