as stated, Ford keeps the production down to about 5,000 per year, even on the Gen II.

I know that but, There hard to find one around where I live... unless I wanted to travel around 300 miles to get one... I guess people that has them wants to hang on to'em... I can see why..

I have found two sence Ive put this thread on, one is a 94', Its b;ack and has a rebuilt title. I dont know bout that.. Another I found is a 95' all orignal, Stock and it has only 62 hundred orignal miles, The guy wants 16k for it.. The two are close by also.. about a 20 mile range from my house.. Is that too much for the 95'? I greatley apreciate anyones advice

I think that the L that has the 6200 miles would be a great truck to buy. That is just like being a first owner on the truck! I would love to have a L that has that many miles on it. That tells you that it was babied and heck, it is not even broke in yet. If you have that 16K for it, I would jump all over it. Good luck on your decision.

And yes, the owners that have one, dont want to get rid of them, thay want more!!!
