Heavy Duty Diesel

I've had a little trouble with the
capacitor on the diesel. However, Ford
has a 3rd generation capacitor that is
now reliable. I added a leaf all around
to raise the truck, rather than using a
lift kit.Happy with the results. This
truck is extremely reliable and will do
anything and get me anywhere. Put 265
tires on it right away.
Plastic trim on the inside of the XLT
is fragile Rear seat is ok, although
we've had teenagers sit in the back
across the country twice.
If you get a diesel, get the manual
transmission. You get the great
advantage of using engine compression
off-road and in poor road conditions.
