Excellent — Own the truck new . Had the 7.3 never had a issue with the truck. I put a chip init when fuel went to $5 a gallon fuel milage went to 23 mpg. All the power you need for hauling or towing. I would recommend this truck to anyone. It is still on the road today with 230,000 plus miles.

It has stacks.

Cons

N/A

25

Just About The Best Truck Ever Made. — It has a Garrett turbocharger, 5-inch smoke stacks, a Cobra LTDBC CB radio with a 5-foot Firestik antenna, and 315/75 R16 offroading tires with American Racing Baja 16x10 rims. This truck gets amazing fuel mileage and is just about the most badass thing you could drive on or off the road.

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

Pros

it never gets stuck snow or mud

Cons

mileage

45

$4500 — She's old with 260,000 miles and she's got a dent in the passenger side bed but you can go there any snow drift in the winter and she's married to the horse trailer in the warmer months. 15 mpg is about as good as it gets.lol

Power

Cons

MPG, open differential

Built Ford Tough — My truck is built ford tough through and through, the 460ci engine performs wonderfully, the only drawback is gas mileage and the open differential out back. Soon it will get custom parts and look even better than it did from the factory
