Solid Vehicle That Just Needs A Little Tlc — I loved the fact that you don't see many on the road and it is easy to work on. No diagnostic equipment is needed; parts are easy to come by because they are interchangeable with the F150's. I just wished I had more time and money to restore it to it's original beauty

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of power 4x4

Cons: load and no longer pretty poor gas mileage

Try And Get Posi In Both Axels!! 302ci With Fue Injection Better Overall — Although I no longer own the truck, it will always hold a spot in my heart, for its' heart! It had the 351 HO and limited slip in BOTH axeles. It never let me down!It was VERY hard to get stuck and pulled out more 4X4's than I could count.I had the baseline Custom with hose out interior and had to after playing in the mud! It was a big truck and liked the gas pump! 12-13 mpg..But I LOVED that old truck!!I used this for everything! Towing,commuting, off road, pulling out trees and shrubs, etc.

Pros: Go anywhere & reliable!!

Cons: Polution system went bad and was difficult to repair.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great summer vehicle with the top off and window down or doors off.

Cons: dies due to vapor lock unless modified exhaust.

Want To Keep It, But Got Too Many Vehicles Already — It's a V6, built ford tough and waiting to be driven away. Has a bit of rust on the body and a cracked windshield, but runs fine. Needs work on the rear hatch. A good beginners vehicle. Fun to take out to the bush for a drive. Fuel mileage hasn't been tested yet and maintenance is relatively simple.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Good for starters.

Cons: the one i have is a rust bucket that has it's problems.

'85 Bronc — performance - sluggish but strong quality - so many repairs, causing a love hate relationship, but body and chassis are indestructible appearance - shes a beaut, patriot blue with blue interior cost - 8mpg on a good day and atleast a quart of oil a month fun - cant be measured, she can go anywhere and everywhere as long as you have the gas to get there..

Pros: looks and function

Cons: gas and maintainence

Mud Slut — i love my truck except the headaches when it is always breaking down. its a all around fun truck but a big hobby toy. only paid $450 for it and stuck roughly $4,000 into it. but i got big plans in the future for it. a neew motor, tranny, and dual exhaust plus bigger lift and tires going into it.

Pros: fun to be in....a head turner

Cons: always have to fix something on it

Nice Medium-sized Truck Without The Drawbacks Of Big Trucks. — This war gave you a good bird's-eye view of the road. The construction was mostly solid... however, I do remember that after a few years, the joints connecting the front seats to the car corroded and caused the seats to partially detatch. This doesn't make me feel as if this car is worthy by today's road-safety standards. The car was also a gas guzzler, however it was not as big as some trucks that are out and about today... yet it still felt comfortably big.

Pros: Good size and easy to repair.

Cons: Bad gas mileage and questionable construction in certain key safety areas.
