Don't Regret Owning It. — Bought the truck for $800. Used it as everything I needed it for-daily driver for work transportation, pulling trailers large & small, hauling firewood, as another tailgate for parties, off-roading, etc... Never got a complaint. The clutch finally gave out almost two years later, got my money's worth out of it.

It Is An Awesome Truck And I Would Definitely Reccomend It. — I absolutely love this truck. It has always run great. The only things we have ever done to it is change the plugs, wires, oil, replace the fuel pump in the front tank and replace something in the steering column. This truck is tough and the engine is a beast. Love it and love Ford altogether.

Pros

He ran great! Hauled everything I needed to be hauled, four wheelers, band equipment, ect. The driving was smooth as could be.

Cons

Gas mileage was awful. Had no 4WD, a must where I lived when I had him.

Love At First Sight. — Beautiful truck! He had no exterior damage to him. The motor was strong. He hauled everything I needed him to haul. He was my everyday driver when I was in high school. Drove me the 24(Sometimes 48) mile round trip every day without fail, plus some extra driving.

I Love It Personaly. Always Wanted A Old Square Body Ford As A Kid. — It runs nice for everything being stock. I enjoy the pulling power it offers with the 3 speed trans with the 4/10 rear end gear ratio. The 5.8l V8 sucks on gas (also because of the rear end) but I would rather give up on MPG's than on towing power. Its a XLT LB so interior space is amazing (and im 6,2 so I need it) plus the bed is quite large. Its also a Lariat trim so I love the country style to it. Overall I enjoy the truck quite a bit.

This Truck Was Built Ford Tuff And It Has Proven That To Me. — Great Truck! runs good, pulls good, but I have no overdrive on it and it costs me lots of money for gas! It has a 460 in it and will get up and go! Strong truck for the buck! Very comfortable interior, Paint is fadding.

Lots Of Fun — I do everything in this truck, pull, haul, play, and gets me from A to B. there is some rust. the motor runs strong but gas mileage is not the best. the front axle is the independent parallel bar front axle. i am thinking of putting a lift kit on it but i do not have the money or time and space to do it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
