Ford has problems with the ignition modules in the past. The Truck will break down in the most inconvenient spots like the intersection (happened to me 3 times) of a busy highway or freeway. Usually it would cost you a ride in the tow truck which can cost at least $130. The best thing to do is carry a spare ignition module or just take some flammable kerosene and a match to the truck. It is called the TFI Module. Ford knew about the problem and it didn't fixed until they were sued. Stay Away from Ford, Buy Chevrolet.
