An Awesome Timeless Truck, Another Champ By Ford — I absolutely love my truck, it currently has 200,000 miles and still runs amazing, only issue is the gas mileage, which is expected for a truck an esp. with the straight 6 engine in it. That being said i can tow anything and never think twice about it. It's simply an awesome machine and definitely built Ford tough!

If You Need A Truck To Last Forever Get This One — This truck fits my needs perfectly. Its easy to work on, and with 600lbs. Of sand she goes great in the snow. Its a stick so there is no costly tranny work in the future. I just wish it had a better radio.

Fix Or Repair Daily Sums It Up — Bad MPG for a 6 cylinder, Idled Rough, Old "I" beam suspension caused the frame to split at all the cross members & steering box (Major / Costly Repair). Ice Cold A/C, Lots of power options, Hauled & towed everything, easy to drive.

Reliable Truck — This truck gets you where you need to go. Does not have four-wheel drive. 5 speed. It is rusted in a few spots. Ignition is messed up so it can start without a key. Doesn't get great gas mileage, and is drove everyday.

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

Cons

Gas hog

Like An Old Friend. Always There For You — I love my 14 year old trusty truck! Had him since he was brand new! The straight six engine will keep running forever with regular oil changes. Hand detailing twice a year keeps it looking nice, although it is starting to some rust. Air still works, orig. clutch. knock on wood, I need to keep it for a few more years! I'll cry when I have to let it go!
