Default HOPEFULLY soon to be a Pre 1997 F150 owner

So guys, My name is Ivan

I just recently sold my 04 Ford Ranger Edge 2WD
It is got a minor rear main leak / minor accident prior to my purchase. So i decided to let it go before it completely die on me.

So i got my eyes on the pre 1997 F150, love how their body look. And if i could afford the 2012/13 F150, i'd buy it in a heartbeat, but as a college student, i cant afford anything fancy =)

So the pre 1997 F150 fits perfectly in my budget around 3-3.5k

I got a few F150 that im going to look at this week, all are from Craigslist.

I just would like to know what type of things i should look out for on these old trucks.
What parts are more prone to fail, what needs to be replaced and anything that is worth mentioning.

I am not a mechanic or anything, but i do like to fix my own cars/trucks if it is within my knowledge.

So hopefully u fellas can shed some lights on a NEWCOMER TO the F150!!!
