This 2006 FORD F-250 is a replacement for my 2003 Ford with 300K miles F-250 both 2 wheel drive, 5.4 gas. The 2003 is an outstanding vehicle, served me well with no serious maintenance problems. The wife has it now and she loves it. I needed a vehicle of that caliber that would stand up to the same over the road abuse and mileage. I looked at many vehicles other than Ford however, I kept returning to the Ford F-series line. The market is saturated with the 6.0 Power Stroke 4x4. I had no need for the diesel-4x4, with the amount of miles I put on I was advised that it would lead to maintenance problems. I sent out my request on the internet and after some time up popped the 2006 F-250 5.4 gas with 30K miles. Not as many bells and whistles as the 2003 but extra features that equaled out. I looked, test drove, purchased, went on vacation. The family loved it, spacious good ride. I have had the vehicle for 3 months taken several business trips and so far it has lived up to it's replacement. If you are considering a used or new pickup please take a minute and look at "The truth about Trucks" CD provided by Ford. It was very informative and shed a light on the pick up truck market. Ford, if you are reviewing this, Do something with that 6.0, even the dealers don't like them the 7.3 was your best go back.
I've been a Ford man since my first one 1953 Ford Convertible in 1958. Over the years I've wandered away from the brand - Chevy, Volvo, Dodge, VW, etc. But in the end I always went back to Ford. The reason? Most dependable, long lasting, and always a pleasure to own and drive.
