Personally I find their V8's sluggish with terrible mileage. But some people have good luck with them. After owning 3 Rangers, and knowing a lot of guys with Dakota's and S10/Colorado's it'll be a long time before I own an American small truck. There's just no comparison to the NIssan/Toyota options.
Well I ended up buying the truck!
The 4.7 is anything but sluggish, but I guess I've never owned a v8 either. I figured the gas out that it can't be much worse than my Jeep, and I can afford to drive that around so why not, eh?
Overall I'm sure this truck will do everything I want it to, which is to look good and haul me and my bike to the track.
