I have a 2000 Ex..... Love it........pretty much the same as a truck ........all the exact same problems 7.3 L trucks have .........major difference is springs......Ford made them too light and soft for ride quality......problem is they sag ......need to replace them with truck springs and add rear sway bar.....lots of threads on that.......also steer axle is Dana 50 instead of Dana 60.....like F350 has.....never heard of anyone breaking one though ......think some F250's used it also......had to do ball joints at 75k.......also hard to keep the brake rotors from warping without spending a fortune on big $ ones........would imagine trucks have that problem also ??

2000 Limited, 119K, 7.3L, 285 Cooper ATR's, super chips 1705 on tow/performance, Bilsteins, AIH delete, Isspro EGT/Boost/(Trans temp broke)......Brand New Di pricol Trans temp what a deal.....was $35...couldn't pass it up.
