I bought this truck new in 1993. I
have had another vehicle most of the
past 10 years, so the mileage isn't too
high (80K). Other than the leaks
others have written about, no major
problems or unplanned expenses.
Exterior has held up well. Interior
fabrics, carpet, and trim have held up
very well. It is relegated to being a
hauler & airport parker (to keep
my "good" car safe at home), but I'm
planning to keep it another 10 years.
I still think Ford did a great job with
the seat fabric this model year. I
have the 4.0L V6 which I have never
The plastic freeze plugs were just a
really, really bad idea. I can't
imagine there are still trucks out
there that haven't had them replaced
with brass plugs after 10 years (mine
lasted less than 40K miles).
