Keeps On Truckin — This is a great truck if you keep it maintained. My truck spent its first 13 years in the sierra mountain taking on the winter snow and ice. The past 5 years have been down by the beach enduring the salt air. No major problems with the truck just regular maintainence. People still ask me what year it is since it is in such good shape. I wouldn't buy any other brand after having this truck. The gas mileage is low, but that was the range back in the 90's. It has hauled wood, trailers, boats and more without any problems and it hugs the snow bound roads in 4-wheel drive. It's a keeper.

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.

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.)

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!
