This is the best pickup I've ever owned!
Rotors and pads worn-out, had to replace.
Window motor burned out at 217,000.
Transmission slipping at 220,000.
Vacuum pump went bad at 219,000.
Leaking break booster at 217,000.
Had to replace vacuum belt and alternator belt at 215,000.
Head rest rattles, along with the passenger seat.
Truck runs and starts great in all kinds of weather.
Sure parts have worn-out, but that is expected with a truck over 200,000.
I love this truck and have put a deal of stress on it by farming and hauling trailers, along with stop and go driving in dirty conditions.
My only major concern is the e4od transmission. Under load the transmission slips. We have replaced three of them on our other Ford trucks. However our one Chevy has been replaced twice.
The truck is naturally aspirated with a K&N filter on it.
I install a Wix standard filter on it during the summer months, because of the extremely dirty conditions.
Overall I am impressed with the truck, and how the 7.3L performs when under the gun.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
