Good vehicle, but not great.

I like the vehicle. It is tough. But,
comfortable. The six cylinder engine
has decent power. If you want power get
the 4.7 liter. The transmission is a
bit rough when its shifts when a
passing gear is needed. Gas mileage is
not bad. I drive on the highway most of
the way to work and I get 20.4 mpg. I
have the select-trac 4x4. I like being
able to leave it in 2WD mode for normal
conditions and when needed 4HI or 4Low.
However, I did have major problems with
the drive train.
Comfortable ride. Good ergonomics. Go
about anywhere off-road. Good A/C. Good
heater. Like the exterior/interior
design. Handles very well.
Drive-train. At 43000 miles the tranfer
case, rear differential and both drives
shafts were replaced. Vibration and
poor assembly from the factory.
