"I bought this pickup new in 1998. I had some warranty issues regarding recall notices and I had a couple of spark plug wires fail in the first couple of years. Other than that, it has been problem free. I live in Alaska and park it outside every day. It always starts right up. I only have 62000 miles on it but there are no squeaks or rattles. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who needs a 4x4."
"I bought this 98 F150 in 2000 w/30,000 Mi. on the 4.6V8. The Flowmaster exhaust sounds great and gives an extra 25 H.P. and 5mpg. I do nothing but normal maint. & it keeps on truckin'. I LOVE THIS TRUCK!!!"
"I own a 2000, ext. short box, 4x4 with the 5.4L. engine.(bought it used at 68000 miles and now I'm up to 83000 miles).
As far as use goes it will handle anything you throw at it, hauling or trailering. I've had about 1800lbs. in the bed and even over RR tracks the tires didn't touch the wheel-wells. Also I have a fiberglass camper that weighs 9400 lbs. even though it was maxed out according to Ford, it still could have handled another ton on top of that."
