I use d same ford made for mazda as d one in d picture above. it is 2weels axle automatic transmission drive. A very good truck, strong body fuel efficient good. Very stable and ballance espwcially when loaded with goods. My PROBLEM> Gear will nt shift unless i rev.high, after gear refuse to shift. I replace with a used transmission, it dose not perform. It only engage gear 1 and 2 only. please help help me. d That is d only vehicle i have, and its been down for almost 2years now. my e-mail ID is francis_toyin@yahoo.com I reside in .NIgeria.
I own a truck identical to the one pictured, I bought it used in 1997 with under 40k miles. Since, I've driven it to +185k miles. I also had issues with starting, after a bad shop charged me +$500 while "parts changing", they finally changed the ECC relay and has been fine ever since. I installed a 3" body lift and 16" Crown Vic rims w/265-85 rubber(FYI-Explorer rims will fit also); put 4 leafs in the rear and F-150 springs in the front, looks a lot like a 4X4 now! Does 70+ mph shifting out of 3rd, half way through 4th the speedometer is useless (85+ mph); not brave enough to see where it ends in 5th that high up. Awesome little truck, had to replace the normal items: battery, brakes, alternator, clutch, water pump, belt and a/c compressor. Still get around 26 mpg average on the freeway; under 60 mph - 15 mpg into the wind, 35+ with it (wrong gears for those tires).
I bought this truck in the middle of 2006 for $150. There was about $200 put into after webought it.Since then, we put over 60k on it and it still runs beautifully. The only major issue we've had was the fuel pump. It's gotten to the point of too much rust but makes a great field runner, even for a 2WD. I would highly recommened this for any person looking for a first vehicle. That or a 1994 Ford Ranger (same difference).
Bought it with 176,xxx miles, runs great good gas milage, everything works on it.
Overall, this is an exellent truck. But like everything, it has its limits. When we tried to tow a 91 Mazda B-2600i. We ripped off the right side bumper mount. But it was a cheap fix. Now we use it for a field truck due to some "mis-manufacturing". But it was a great truck and still is. I would highly recommened one of these little strong trucks.
