"Out of all of the trucks I have owned this is by far the best. The only things I have found to be a problem have been the stock Ford automatic locking hubs which I replaced with more reliable warn units and it is slow when the exhaust back pressure valve is engaged to warm up the truck first thing in the morning but that also was easily remedied by a TS 6 position chip (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED). A few of my passengers have said the ride was kind of rough but I have no problem with it, after all it is a 3 series chassis it's ment to be loaded down and when it is the ride is not bad at all."
Cons: "Stiff ride, passes everything but gas stations!"

"Owned this truck since 1997. I have only put 55k miles on it in almost 16 years. It has NEVER let me down. Been camping, haul rock, fire wood, motorcycles. You name it and it will pull it down the road. Dragged a 32 foot boat 300 miles for a friend. Huge cab seats six very comfortably. A/C still ice cold. Normal wear and tear; rotors, calipers. Just change oil every 3k, and transmission fluid every 20k. I put a B&M shift kit and a Haynes Transmission cooler, and I tell you the E4OD it a beast! Ran three inch exhaust to let her breathe, and a K&N free flow air filter. Gets about 10mpg empty downhill with the wind behind her! Leaf springs are stiff, and the mono beam front end rides rougher than the newer Fords."
