Here's something you [size]G[/size]overnment [size]M[/size]otors guys don't have to worry about. Rolled over 300,000 Sunday. All original drivetrain. Never a major repair, never had the valve covers off. Tranny, transfer case, and front/rear diffs have never been touched. 1999 Ford F150 4x4.

Just rolled over 300,000 a few days ago in my Toyota, now I'm not knocking Ford but I hear of a lot more problems with ford vehicles than with toyotas ;)

Does that one have the inline 6 cylinder? Those motors are pretty bulletproof. My dad sold his with 320,000 miles and it still ran like champ.

My dad had a 93 F150 with the 300 6 cyl in it,bought it with 40K on it,when he sold it for $600 last year,the truck had 325K on it,and still ran great.Original motor and transmission and running gears.The truck never burned a drop of oil. My last ranger 95 4x4 had 275K on it when I sold it and it never burned any oil and had the original motor and transmission.

Your little Toy 2wd is a car with a big trunk. Not really a truck. This truck has pulled my bass boat all over 3 states and spent a LOT of time in 4WD. That's a litle tougher than running down the black top to haul some groceries! ;)

My brother-in-law has a 2001 ford ranger with the v6 and just rolled 300,000 a few weeks ago. Truck still looks new. My 2006 f250 has a mere 50-something thousand on it but i plan for it to see a lot more.

My parents had 2 Fords in the late 80s to early 90s. One literally fell apart at 100,000, the other caught on fire at 32,000. The only 2 Fords in our work fleet spend more time in the shop than they do out. The 5 GM products I have owned/do own never did that. Wouldn't own a Ford, glad yours has worked out so well for you.

Cool, now wipe that ketchup off your steering wheel.

I think that's on the steering column but it does look like ketchup. I'm not surprised. I live out of my truck, and I love ketchup!

My truck before this one was a 92. Had 265,000 on it when I sold it and was still running strong. I won't own anything but a Ford.
