Just purchased '04 Crew Cab 4WD SE with 66K miles. The soft brakes and drive shaft/u-joint issues decried by some '04 drivers were a bonus for me: Easily corrected(!), WHILE driving the resale value down among mechanically un-savvy drivers--BONUS! I've always been a fan of Ford and GM trucks, and have owned more JEEPs than most drivers. But in selecting a work truck, the superior fit-n-finish, interior quality, and ergonomics of the Titan, and the above-mentioned bargain pricing, forced me away from the Big 3 offerings I intended to purchase. Time will tell if I remain happy. I will report after 30K miles are added to the odo. For now, I've twice the truck for 1/2 the dollars.
Superior cargo tie-downs for motorcycles and work material. Spacious cabin. Powerful engine. Commanding exhaust note.
Front seat design. off-road approach angle comprimised by nose-down fuel saving front end set-up.
