last vehicle I had that did that, the issue was a worn out syncho and a worn/bent shift fork that was keeping it from fully engaging, and probaby caused the synchro wear.. It wasn't a ford or even a truck, but manual transmissions are all pretty similar inside.

I've ever since babied first gear on most anything i've driven, and wait for 2nd before pouring on any significant power.
