nothing in specific. the duratecs are very reliable engines. just keep up on general maintainence on the truck and it'll be around for a looong time.

i have always considered the 2.3 duratec to be equal to the 3.0 in reliability.

sounds like a pretty decent truck. if you havnt already, you should post an introduction with some pics in the introduction forum.
