"I bought this truck used in 2002 with 12,000 miles on it. I have driven it for 14 years. It was great when I had kids, they loved riding in the back. Took it on vacations for several years, loaded the kids in the back and our stuff in the truck bed. Truck has been trouble free. Had to do some minor repairs to front end, just replaced the thermostat (although I think my repairman damaged that when checking the AC) and most recently EVG valve. Engine runs great and definitely hoping for 200,000 miles plus. Due to change in family circumstances, my college aged son is now driving the truck. I miss it!"

"I bought this truck about 7 years ago and it has been one of the best vehicles that I have ever owned. Has never given me any trouble, no major mechanical issues at all. The engine is in very good shape. A/C gets very cold for those hot Vegas days. Interior is in good condition. There is storage behind the back seats, not much though. Back seats fold down flat too. Back seats are very comfortable for even long rides. I need to fix the center console arm rest, my dog jumped on it and it broke. There is a small ding and paint chip on the passenger front wheel well area, the rest of the exterior is in good shape. It has a folding bed cover that locks at each end and can be used half open, fully closed, or easily removed. There is also a tailgate extension as well. If Ford still made this truck I would by a new one without a second thought. A great truck for a great price."

Pros: "A pleasure to drive. Lots of comments from riders"

Cons: "light weight rear end, due to fiberglass body."

"Have owned this vehicle since 2007, and with the right tires, (I use Cooper AT3's), it is great in the winter, on road or off. It goes anywhere while in 4x4 drive. Not a lot of traction without the 4x4, as it is light in the rear end. Comfortable, easy to drive, lots of power. Hate to trade it, but I must, as I need a larger truck."

"I have owned this car/truck for about two years now and buying it was my worst mistake. I live in an area where it snows and this car is one of the worst cars when handling in snow. I would rather drive a mustang in the winter then this."

"Bought with few miles on it. Towed behind 40' RV short distances. Never gave us a minute's trouble. Very comfortable for four adults traveling. Has a half-moon chrome extension for body (removable when not needed). Hard top lockable cover opens from rear and also just behind rear window. Leather seats are in excellent condition. Has been parked under RV Port when not in use. Good battery and tires"
