1998 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB

Review

I bought this truck on 1/2002 with 41K miles now 11/07 it has 71K. It has been an awesome 4x4. Repairs have been an alternator replacement, 2 rear axel seals and some O2 sensors plus normal maintenace. Just took a 3k mile road trip and fuel on the 4.6L v-8 w/w automatic trans ranged from 16-20 mpg at nominal 70 mph interstate driving. Ride is very plush compared to my old 89 F250 4x4. Mine also has the off road package w/w limited slip rear axel which is a great option on off road applications. I replaced the OEM battery this year after 9 yrs! The 4.6 liter V8 is more than enough power for my driving

Favorite Features

Love the short wheelbase/regular cab. Easy to park and drive compared to extended cabs. Sound system is good but 6 disc CD is a pain to load. Like the styling and the truck is extremely tight on off hwy roads. Very smooth highway ride and handling.
