This is my second diesel truck, first used, and I am very pleased. I have heard all the horror stories about the 6.0L powerstroke, and it does concern me, that's why we decided to purchase the extended warranty. I did have to get a valve cover gasket and a rear end gasket replaced, but both were done within the 30 day warranty Carmax gives. The truck, however, was put to the test within the first month of me owning it. After the first week, I made a 1,200 mile trip, and the pulled my 10,500 lb camper 700 miles after I had it only 3 weeks, then made another 800 mile trip, dry. Needless to say, it is performing the tasks in which I bought it to do!!

Two Turbos, rear end, radio, emblems and paint are all junk. I only use the truck for pulling a trailer, it has plenty of power for that when it is working. The 4x4 push button control in the transfer case also broke, guess when, winter! Spent 40K for a fully loaded truck new, it has been a total pile of junk! Quality is typical Ford, bad! Can't even sell it because most people know that the 6.0 Turbo's are trash! Ford service has been a total joke as well. Their answer to the constant turbo failures, rebuild it with the same used junk that failed. I will never, never, never buy a ford again!

A truck can offer the perfect blend of utility and power. The sturdy truck bed carries all the tools needed to get a tough job done, and the engine and its torque can help tow all the equipment. With that in mind, different trucks have different towing options. Whether it’s towing for work or the family vacation, here are seven used trucks that excel at pulling their weight.
Do frigid temperatures and harsh weather leave you cold on the idea of braving the elements in your car? When you’re piloting a vehicle that’s up to the task, wintertime driving isn’t so much of a challenge. Instead, it can be fun!
The Ford F-150, the top-searched vehicle on carmax.com in 2017, has a heck-raising version called the SVT Raptor. Love it or not, the Ford Raptor is impossible to ignore. It rules the road (and dirt, mud, sand, etc.)!
