Yep that is why I bought mine new, I have seen some of the abuse 4X4's take especially if someone is trading it in, I had a 1990 Ranger XLT 4X4 I bought new and it lasted me 20 years, when i decided i was going to get a new one...well i put that truck thru hell for about a week, I could tell it was in pain when I traded her in.

Bought new, ordered it the way I wanted it.. Price was right too.. $19,700 for a fully loaded brand new FX4? No brainer..

Hooray for A-Plan and $6000 dealer incentives.

My 2000 I bought new and had it for 3 years , I loved that truck . Then I just bought this one new as well . VERY happy with it so far . All power except for the mirrors . never knew they had them . It is a real comfortable truck to drive .
About 23K total minus a few bucks , plus I put some money down on it . I'll have it for another 5 to 6 years ...

I bought mine used for $800 too!

I don't think I would ever buy a new vehicle. It costs too much for what you get. You can get a good quality used vehicle for a good price. If you are worried about a 4x4 being beaten before it is brought in, take it to a mechanic you trust and pay him to inspect it first.

New, less trouble that way.. or so i thought.

Ford is a shitty company, but what saves it for me is a good community of owners.

Got mine used and still paying for it. It's in great condition and I got a great deal when I got it. It has never let me down.
