It really is a FORD (Fix Or Repair Daily) and I'm getting fed up with it. I've thought about selling it soooo many times but I'm too emotionally attached and I've dumped more $ into it lately on stupid BS. Just bought a Subaru Impreza to use as the daily driver and maybe the truck will last - but I think this might be its last summer with me if it doesn't die first.

A few small dings in the body work. Also a small hole in bed, on drivers side, where rock punched through. Some moron pulled in front of me, in construction area, then stopped to turn, with little warning! Had to hit brakes, with about 450# decorative rock in back.
Drivers seat vinyl cracking/splitting bad. Want to replace seats anyway.
And no bedliner of any sort.

swapped out the flimsy-looking and horribly corroded battery post connectors with burlier ones.

I hate that I found out in the middle of the desert that the stock jack I have is not tall enough to lift the front end enough to change a tire. And that I had to unload a dirtbike and half my camping gear because you can't get the spare out with the tailgate down

Now that the weather is warmer, my rear window creaks when the cab flexes. I'm going to have to find out what is going on and silence it!

Could be bad seal or bad window. Mine does the same when I go down the driveway, it leaks a little as well.

The battery light is flickering now and then and everything tests out fine and there are no loose connections or wires!
