ReviewI have 135k on the truck and no major repairs, just fluids and exhaust. I however did replace an axle shaft after a guy hit my rear end but I felt lucky considering I was able to still drive it while his car was in a bunch of pieces. I have really beat on this thing bought it from my Dad when i was 17 and took it off roading all the time and have put 2000lbs in the bed a couple of time. The only thing I wish was different was the 4x4 Ford uses a vacuum system to engage the system which always fails. I switched to manual hubs and no more problems. The 3.0 and 4.10 rear end is a pretty nice set up
Best Features4.10 gears, great hauling ability, rated at about 1300 but very composed up till 1800lbs
Worst FeaturesGet rid of pvh hubs which they did but I would avoid 4x4 Ranger from 98 to 00 unless you are willing to install manual hubs. A limited slip would be nice but not necessary
