The best, most reliable trucks period!
It pings under light load and it runs a little warm with a load.
The transfer case needs to be resealed.
I love the 92' to 98' trucks and apparently so do a lot of others as people continually offer me money for it and tell me how great theirs were. I bought it because I had a 2000 Ranger that had a motor knock and a bad tranny and Ford would not fix it! Ford service has gotten really bad so beware! Consider the 92' to 98' trucks, my last one went 240,000 miles and still ran great! I think these were the best truck ever made and I am a Chevy tech. It seems as though Ford quality is either really good or really bad. These trucks were made when it was really good. If yours pings check the distributor as it can pick up engine vibration and send the timing up. If anyone else has had this problem and cured it let me know what you did to fix it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
