"Everything functionally speaking is industrial with this truck. While, for a truck that is, it handles well with great feedback and little effort... that is relative to trucks. It still behaves like a truck but not to the point of where my petite wife feels uncomfortable driving it. In fact, she had more concerns driving my 2001 F150 Supercrew Lariat than this truck. The king ranch leather is not kid friendly and if you have children 4 and under it would be wise to get spill proof seat covers to avoid stains. the leather is durable and easy to maintain (save neglect.) The only really negative thing i can say for this specific truck is dealing with performance upgrades. 2006 was the first year for the 6L turbo. It had 3 specific flaws that would have to be addressed if you wanted to up the power. The stock head bolts were week, the turbo housing had issues and the injectors also had issues. When I purchased my truck, these 3 issues were already fixed and I haven't had any issues with power adders. My advice (if you plan on power adders) is to ensure that those issues have already been addressed. If you don't plan on doing any power adders it shouldn't be an issue."
Pros: "Strong/smooth drivetrain, tight body, great looks"
Cons: "High cost if not maintained, outdated interior"

"My dad purchased this truck new in '05 and I bought it in 2011 when he passed away with 52k miles on it. The only problem that I've ever had was a cracked STC fitting which caused long/no start when warm. Cost was ~$300 to fix. As a precautionary measure, I studded it with the help of a friend, deleted the EGR, and replaced the oil cooler ($275 at the time) and I've been trouble free. I love the power, sound, and looks of the truck and will keep it forever. The only thing that I do not like is the interior. It is very basic for a $40-55k truck when new. I pull occasionally with it with around 5-8k pounds and sometimes up a 7% grade and it does great. I have averaged 16.5mpg over last 12 months with mixed driving. Best tank was 21mpg (90% highway) and worst tank was 13.6mpg (towing)."
