One Long Lasting Truck
SEP
19

There is a long story about how we didn’t get our families 1996 ranger but it brought us to a 2006 Ford F150XL. We picked this one because it was so much like my wifes dad’s truck, standard shift, roll up windows, no automatic door locks. When we bought it new in April 2006 we never thought we would need a back seat (for grandkids) or power windows (to clear off the mist of Florida mornings) but therein lies the story. Although a back seat would be great, at 93,000 miles this truck is still running strong. Original clutch, and brakes and I wonder if anything on it will ever wear out (besides the tires). I really need to get a slightly bigger one for grandkids, but this one continues to run well, and except for a water pump, tires and a battery, all original. When you say “Ford Tough” you are not kidding. This truck has help countless widows and single moms move, carried more things than I can remember and still keeps on going. Great job Ford! This is one long lasting truck!
