Pros: Nice looking, has done a lot of work for me, pulls a heavy load easily.
Cons: Big things break, small things break.
I bought this truck new from the Ford dealer. It is nice looking but I have had many service issues. The head gaskets had to be redone twice with the truck under 70,000 miles, the first time under warranty which didn't fix the problem and the second time I had to pay 1/2 because the warranty was over. The 4 wheel drive has broken twice in the first 100,000 miles, and I have never been off road with it. Sometimes I have to do the switch twice to get it into or out of 4 wheel drive. The alignment has always been a problem. The left side door doesn't close properly so there is always a loud wind noise on the drivers side when driving on the highway. The heater temperature knob on the dash has broken twice because something inside makes it hard to turn. The rear window sometimes leaks in the rain. The mileage indicator only works when it wants to, sometimes it stays off for a few days. (The dealer says $85 just to tear into the dash to start figuring out what is wrong) I don't know if this is normal or not, but the tires have been replaced every 45,000 miles because of wear. This truck has always gone back to the dealer for service every 5000 miles so I definitely haven't mistreated it to have had all of these quality problems. On the other hand, I have put 110,000 mostly highway miles on it in 3 years and it has never broken down on me on the road. It has carried a big load several times and does quite well.
