i've never saw myself as brand loyal. being poor, i usually drive what i can find thats cheapest. i must say i've owned quite a few f150's with 300 six and standard shift and find this to be the best combo bar none ! the 300 is no racer but the little 6 does her job with out complaint and parts are cheap, plentifull, and easy to work on.. i've had several run over 250,000 miles. one we drove over 239,000 miles, 100,000 miles were with a rod or wrist pin wrapping that sounded like the engine was going to explode. never did blow up. the body rotted too bad to repair so it was scrapped.
