    I've worked on them for about 5 years. They do tend to go through ball joints in about 40-50k miles (4x4's). Not that big of a deal, something to keep in mind.

    If you want good mileage, got a 4-cylinder. If you want good power, get the 4.0L V6. The 3.0L is lacking in power and gets bad mileage, worst of both worlds.

    Otherwise, they're good trucks. Don't count on having anyone in the back of an extended cab. It's too small, mainly for keeping luggage or things like that out of the elements. If you want a Ranger type vehicle that will hold 4 adults, get a Sport Trac.
