Toughest vehicle ever made. I've hit deer, a cow, a monstrous round boulder, several trees (ranging from saplings to huge fallen pines), broken through 2 frozen lakes; sure they were very luckily only around 3ft both times, and the cow and larger trees were only around 20 to 30mph. All this bone stock!
The deer only bent my licence plate, I just rammed the cow to the ground without a dent, and the trees and boulder were just unlucky enough to be in my way, so I ran em over. The boulder was impressive; it was as big as one of the old 24" box TVs. I hit it going at least 45. I just banged over it, first lifting my front end over it and beating up my bumper a tiny bit, then dragged it in my undercarriage before it caught something big enough to let my rear end jump it and finally touch ground.
I've had it stuck in mud, snow, and ice at least 7 times a year. So bad 3 times I had to use heavy equipment. If you've ever been a serious off roader, you know getting stuck in mud and snow is very hard on your rig, and this one's been BAD stuck at least 20 times without any ensuing problems. And all this without any major fixes, and mileage at over 200,000. As a matter of fact, I've been trying to break it town ever since it hit around 230,000. I just can't do it. I'm getting close though, but I've thought that for 30K. No Dodge or Chevy ever made, at least after 1980, could ever take that kind of abuse.
This truck has outlived 4 other vehicles I've owned. I would put my life on the line in this truck, no joke. It will start every time no matter what, even in the dead 40 below zero cold of Wyoming winter. This truck has seen it all, and never left me with a bad thing to say about it. Even in the cold, the heater's scalding hot in minutes, and the A.C. will freeze you out even a 110 outside. I can't imagine not having this truck for the rest of my life. It may only be worth around a thousand, but I wouldn't sell it for 20K. And any major fix would be worth more than it, but I'll fix it no matter the cost.
The old golden boy as I refer to it, because it is champagne (which looks gold) in color, is absolutely the best vehicle I've ever owned, and that includes cars and trucks, ranging from Chevy Impalas to Porsches. It is indestructible, and it's back to being my daily driver since everything else is wrecked or broke down. If given the choice between a 94 F150 with a 100k on it or a brand new 60 thousand dollar diesel truck, I'd take the 94. How's that for a review, sounds like I love my truck doesn't it. Hope it helps someone make a great decision in the future.
