    I bought a 1997 Ford F250 new with the 5.4 liter Triton v8......Never had a problem with the engine... the transmission was replaced about after about 140k.....still have the truck and its running great! probably have 180k on it now... i say probably as the odometer no longer works.

    Don't be in a hurry. You still have a truck that runs. Take your time and keep looking for "the right truck" until you find it. When I was in the hunt this past winter/spring I looked at several used pickups. A couple of them seemed to almost hit all the right buttons, but there was something I discovered in them that didn't quite fit the bill. Then, when I was looking at yet another possibility that wasn't quite right, I saw a gleam of burgundy paint from under a carport across the property. That '97 Chevy K1500 now sits in my garage. https://www.taurusarmed.net/forums/l...d-you-buy.html

    The moral of the story: You'll know it when you see it.

    You're missing the obvious solution. Appropriate your wife's F250....

    not sure what year ford fixed the sprk plug issue, but my 2010 xlt no longer had that issue. good truck but the clutches in the differential sucked. replaced under warranty at 59000, traded it at 120000 when i felt the symptoms again. traded it in on a left over 2018 platinum 3.5 eco boost crew 4x4. it is soooo sweet. the 3.5 eco is a really hot motor. 375hp, 475 torque.got it new off the lot in 2019 at sweet discount. about same price as a 2019 XLT but with all the great options. it is so nice on the interstate to set the cruise at the highest i want to go and let it pace the guy ahead

    I have an Expedition with the 5.4, and an F150 with the 5.0. I prefer the 5.0, but the 5.4 is a fine engine too. There's an F150 with the 5.4 in the family, and it has over 200,000 miles on it.

    I'm a huge fan of Ford, and especially their trucks/SUVs. I wouldn't have anything else in the pickup department.
