1996 Ford F-150 Special 2dr Extended Cab SB


I bought this truck with 106; 000 miles on it. It has 147,000 now, it's never left me stranded and has always run well. The only parts I replaced was a belt tensioner, radius arm bushings {only one was bad, but replaced both anyway} and ball joints just recently. I love the way it handles looks and drives. The fuel mpg could be better but I figure I make up for that with the reliability of the truck.

Best Features

i would have to say the 5.0 , i've had many people tell me these motors will run 200 or 300 k if not more. i love the design too. the last year they made them like that. i also like how the short bed handles with the shorter wheel base.

Worst Features

i cant think of anything other than fuel mileage but it's a full sized truck so i guess it's about right all things considered. i get about 12-14 around town and 17-18 highway. not bad considering it's 14 years old and mileage is pretty close to the year the car was made.
