never let's me down
By Eric on


1998 Ford F-150 3dr Extended Cab SB


I have used my truck for daily drive of 50+ miles for 5 years, plus hauling mulch, wood, moving- whatever I need it makes it happen. I have 2wd and living in VA I have never even needed 4wd in the snow. I am not good to vehicles and have only had to replace normal wear and tear. Some of the bottom of the doors has been starting to rust, but I just put on more rustoleum and keep going. About 2 years in I added a KN cold air intake and a flowmaster duel exhaust and this gives me about 3/4 extra MPG and sounds AWESOME! Overall it is one of those vehicles that you never have a doubt if she will start up- I would never part with my truck until she decides to go.

Best Features

Interior and Exterior styling holds up. Love the power of the 5.4l. So much room in the back seat also.

Worst Features

The tires and brakes seem to wear a little early, but that may be the driver.
