IMO pick up trucks dont get any better than 99-07 Fords with 5.4 engines as long as your not towing 10,000 lbs every day, they are not tow monsters. Had a 2000 that when I sold it had 315,000 miles on it and driving an 05 with 118,000 and both were/are extremely good trucks. Both burned just a bit of oil as do all I have ever been around and if you get both lazy about checking and changing it you will run them out of oil. Spark plugs can have issues but if you change them twice as often as everyone says you need to and you will solve both major problems, sticking in the heads and coil pack problems.

Sounds like you got lucky. I have heard alot of horror stories on those Fords. Between spark plugs ,cam phasers ?,and dual overhead cam timing chain issues.

I have heard about the those an drive problems but never known of any personally. Both type spark plugs being the main problem area. I took mine out early on, coated then with Ford Nickle never seize, torque them and replace every 50K and no other issues.
