No one wants to drive a truck that is struggling to run properly. No matter how well made the vehicle is and no matter how well the owner maintains it, time can wear down even the absolute best vehicles. The Ford F100 is a beloved pickup truck that has proven itself over the decades and if you can find some older farmers, ranchers, and your regular country boys can attest to just how reliable a well-maintained F100 used to work from the final generation (1980-1983) and you may still see some of them running in the right rural area.
Now when you look at the truly classic Ford F100 models from the previous 6 generations there is a truck that is beautifully designed, engineered, and could still hold up to a work load although for many classic truck collectors that’s not likely to be a consistent use but in an emergency they will still pull their weight in a pinch!
Common Ford F100 parts to replace include, but aren’t limited to:
– Motor mounts
– Transmission mounts
– Flip kits
– Rod assembly
– Suspension system & more!
