Default Ford sport trac

The girlfriend is wanting a truck. I feel the sport trac best fits her needs, but I have no experience with them. She will not be hauling tons. Shes looking at a 2004.

Any input?

Not knowing her needs, but my buddy has a Sport Trac with at least 100k on it. It's his daily driver, and we use it when we go hunting every year, as it's a lot quieter and more comfortable than my Cummins dually for cruising the hills. It's hauled a lot of hunters, supplies, and animals.

Well we'll see how it turns out. She picked up one yesterday and is loving it. I will be making a cargo net for it once she gets me the LxWxH of the bed. It seems like the guy took pretty good care of it.

The only think I know about them is the back brakes seem to always need attention and the rear spring shackles rot off, which may or may not be an issue depending on where you are in proximity to the rust belt.
