Over All It's A Truck What Can I Say — Ford has had three recalls on this truck which doesn't speak well for it. The engine has enough power for what I use it for however it should be noted that the truck is to light to tow anything. I might look into buying another one if Ford improves on the recall record.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The trust has been virtually maintenance free other than the recalls and the check engine light that never goes off.

Cons: The front auto locking hubs were the first thing to go.  The fog lights are unprotected and break from road pebbles to the point that I don't even bother with them anymore. The anti lock breaks prevent me from stopping quickly if I hit a bump(s) or rough terrain which I hate.

Fun To Drive! — The truck has a 3.0 liter V6 so it has pretty good acceleration the braking is good, but with bigger tires is kind of dangerous when raining. The truck is in great condition, ac works and has automatic 4x4. The interior has camo flooring, very nice. With the V6 it doesnt get the best gas mileage, but very fun to drive! Cant forget the rear locking differential for the best performance off road.

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

Pros: Rear locking differential.

Cons: Automatic 4X4

Something I feel is that car manufacturers dont want you to be comfortable in a small pick up and they are hoping to direct you to one of their pricey behemoths . The Ranger is an example of this . Th... Read More
