Vehicle: 1993 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB

i bought if off my brother in law in 05, it has the famous 4.9 strait six and at 16 years old it is more reliable then a some brand new cars i have drove. never stranded me and is a daily driver. i see these trucks all over the road as if they never get old.




Best truck i've had

I've always been a GM guy. Well I have now changed my mind. This is a great truck, lots of pep! The get up and go coming from the 5.0 is great. The only thing that I do not like is how much lower it sets than it's GM counterpart.




Ages poorly

My Ford mechanically was a good truck as far as repairs go. The problem is in northern states this truck will fall apart. Rear spring shackles made out of thin gauge steel, rusted through. Oil pan on engine rusted through. Radiator core support rusted through at body mounts. All this on a well cared for truck with minimal body rust. The rear springs were soft for a truck. The 5.0 engine a good motor reliability wise but was a gutless pig. 10 mpg 2WD truck. This model truck was designed in 1980 with yearly updates. Ford was way late in '97 to update their truck. A Chevrolet was a better truck for this year. The Ford was better looking with a nicer interior but a dinosaur; it showed behind the wheel.




Hey, its a truck!

Not great for towing serious loads, fuel economy was kind of low, very low. The previous owner had the tranny fixed at least twice so it's not that great for loads or construction work. Might need a bigger Ford. But it served its purpose for light hauling and basic work truck.




Best truck i've ever owned

Vehicle: 1993 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB

I love this truck. the handling and power are exceptional for the engine size. it looks and feels great. everything about the instruments and switches(such as the blinkers, windshield washers etc.) are right where i need them. Two gas tanks is an exceptional feature. Keep up the good work!




I miss my truck

Vehicle: 1993 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB

I just lost this truck to an accident. I had 132500 miles on it with nothing more than a belt and hose change. This was the most dependable vehicle I've ever owned.
