I bought this truck because I needed something to pull my 24' cargo trailer and classic car. It's the King Ranch edition, so it came with nearly every option. Don't be fooled: this is a work truck. Unloaded on the highway it can get loose on rough pavement due to the heavy-duty springs. The seats are comfortable, but you'll never forget what you're driving. The sound system is typical Ford- nothing to write home about- but Kenwood makes a bolt-in DVD/nav/satellite stereo for it. About $1250 for that and some decent speakers and you're ready to haul anything, anywhere. Unloaded the truck gets 19mpg highway, but with my loaded trailer it got 11. It never dropped below 65mph even in the mountains, so I'm not complaining. Loaded the truck smooths out quite a bit as the springs settle with the weight. It's a good looking truck, plenty of interior room for long trips, but there are no climate vents for back-seat passengers so some accommodating may be required in extreme heat or cold. I'm planning on getting a 30' trailer to haul the car and have living quarters and I have no doubt it will pull it just fine.
I had been looking for a truck for some time and this truck showed up. I called and had it transferred and once it arrived at the store i went and test drove it and was blown away at how clean the truck is inside and out. The truck has everything i could ever need on it. I've only had it about a month and a half but i wouldn't trade it for anything. The kids love riding in the "monster truck".
Mechanically this is the worst truck i have ever owned. Has left me stranded numerous times with livestock in the trailer I'm pulling - you can't even imagine what a pain it's been. This truck has just about sent me to the bankruptcy line. Very costly repairs are almost a monthly task with this truck. I suggest a hefty maintenance fund if you purchase one. Not sure why the others on here at giving this vehicle 5 stars as everyone I know with the 6.0 ford have experienced the same issues?? The upside - an awesome looking truck Chris
