I had my 2000 extra cab for about 10 years, bought it for $1,500 and at the time that was cheap. It started out as a work truck and then became my favorite ride........even over my Lexus. 2 wheel drive with 355,000 on it until it hit black ice this January. So now I have an 07, just wanted to dabble with the second Gen, but still have the 4.7. That is one great engine, and I still miss my first gen, what an awesome truck. It is now all in pieces and just a frame sitting in the yard. New frame better shape than my 07. Here is a pick of her last big journey. From Rhode Island to Wyoming and then down to Austin Texas and back home. Not a drop of oil lossed, and still golden when I got back home. It felt like I wasn't even towing anything. Gota Love it. So go out today and give your first Gen a big Hug. It deserves it.
