id tear out the interior to make sure they didnt lay eggs, other wise that would really suck... just get your exterior wash really good, in all the nooks and crannies (like a english muffin()

Ants naturally avoid sage. Sprinkle some sage under, behind and around things in your truck, or better yet sage oil (if there is such a thing) they will probably avoid the interior.

We had an E250 at work that sat in the lot unused for a few months. Ants got inside and nested in the drivers seat cushion.
