    It's Dependable And Easy To Work On. — There's not that much room in the back for kids to ride in on long trips camping. While pulling a camper I've had to add air bag suspension on it to level the truck out. But it's paid for and easy to work on.

    Pros: Overall its been a durable truck

    Cons: Not that great on fuel, commute to work going across a mountain everyday.

    1998 F150 — Well this is the simplest vehicle i own. no blind spots comfortable for two and so versatile that it can be used for anything at all ( except Dinner with the wife ). Needs to be upgraded though to a more creature comfort version like the SVT.

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

    Pros: Everybody needs a truck.

    Cons: Boy it cost to own a truck

    Good! — The apperance is good and comfortable ride. Nice having back seat and the bed for storage. The V8 motor runs great and gets fairly good gas mileage. The braking system is fairly good, though in the rain it tends to want to hydroplane at times? Its a good truck for what our family uses it for, back and fourth to shop and traveling(fishing) etc...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Like the look and fairly comfortable for (four) adults.

    Cons: Don't like where muffler comes out the side of truck by door (Stinks like exhaust) when you get in while truck is running.

    1998 F150 — Outstanding truck. Lasts forever tons of fun to drive. A little slow at the top end but a tune up is all that's necessary. Fair price for plates. Awesome 4x4 for tons of fun when the road is too boring

    Pros: Solid truck

    Cons: No bad qualities

    My Truck. — my truck is 13 years old and the only problem i have had out of it is a slight coolant leak fixed it 45 minutes. It drives great and sounds great with the straights on it. Performance is pretty good for a small V8 it has great torque and handles pretty good too.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It is an overall great truck and no matter what happens to it, it will always be with me even when the wheels fall off.

    Cons: The only draw backs to my truck is the gas milage and some body damage.

    The Best Trucks In The World - Ford :-) — My truck has over 250,000 miles on it. It still runs and looks great, I would say that repair bills have been less than expected for a vehicle its age. The power and gas mileage have gone down slightly over the years, but that is expected.

    Pros: Its just an all around awesome truck

    Cons: factory sound system was not too great

    F150 — Fairly dependable truck. A big gas hog! I get only about 12 miles to the gallon. It has a lot of power. It should since it uses so much gas. Pulled a uhaul trailer through the mountains of Colorado and it had no problems. Feel lucky that the previous owner took care of it. The only thing is some rust underneath due to the winters in Colorado. Definitely a truck I would recommend for heavy work.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Like full size trucks you will like this one. Plenty of towing power.

    Cons: Gas hog.
