Best truck Ive ever had! Most dependable, had it since 95 and only done small amounts of maintenance but its an old truck your gonna have to fix a little here and there! Bad on gas but definitely worth it!

Great Truck, First One, And Im A Chevy Fan. —

This truck is my first truck and the owner before neglect it to hell and only used it for towing his boat around. I payed 400$ for it and put in 200~350 into it so far. None of it major work just fluids,hoses,belts. Only thing went out on it when i bought it was the fuel tank selector couldnt find one for the life of me. Check LMCtruck they have it but want 200$+ for the part so i just bypassed the rear fuel tank to just be ran to the engine. Sucks alot of gas with a 5.8l in it but honestly in aint much differnt then my jeep with a 4.0 lol. Love the bed of it, i scrap alot and need that kind of space. Not sure if this is stock but the rear suspension has helper springs and coil springs(So can put alot of weight in the back without a prob, even the engine can hold up lol) Has a little bit of a lifter/rocker noise in the engine but it has 250k on the engine so i aint complaining. Love the truck, would only trade it for equal pros and better gas mileage lol. P.s. Little bit of rust (:

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

Pros: Strong,reliable,Beefy engine, for the year looks great, Most parts like fuel pumps/water pumps are on the cheap side.

Cons: Heavy,Fuel eco, Not my choice in mudding with 2wheel.

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Sides Of The 1986 Ford F-150 — good truck, needs work from time to time, but with any old truck or car, time and money keeps it going. i would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good project and has a good bit of time on their hands

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its a Ford

Cons: gas

Mostly Good — Once i get eveything fixed this truck is gonna be runnin for a long time cuz its a tough built truck, even tho its a ford i love it. Ive put alot of repairs into it cuz the previous owner didnt take care of it or maintain it. The interior is in pretty good condition, the outside just needs a fresh coat of paint, and now some body repair cuz it got hit 2 days ago :( it dont get to good gas mileage but the maintenence is pretty easy. And it is a very fun truck to dirve cuz its smooth and tall.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Whats awesome about my truck is that its is a special Texas Edition that there were only a few made, long lasting/

Cons: Fords always have problem

A Good Old Truck — I owned it recently so it handled like you would expect an old truck would, it needed some repairs but considering it was over 20 years old it was expected, 80's styling was not especially good for any vehicle but it's 4x4 short bed look helped. it was a 4 spd 300ci inline 6 and it got about 12 mpg. the 4 spd made it fun but the i6 isnt exactly the fastest engine

Pros: good dependable truck

Cons: it's an old truck
