1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT 4dr Crew Cab SB


Review

Pros: Super reliable: 220k on mine and all it's needed is 2 alternators and a set a glow plugs. Super powerful: Hits 90mph easily but has a Governor at 92. Neutral: Gas mileage: Horrible when going slow or stop and go. Got 5mpg in some areas before. BUT, I get 18-20 on the Hwy and Freeways and ~15 when pulling a large trailer which is amazing considering how big and powerful the vehicle is. Cons: Lots of little stuff. Bad stereo, AC works but needs Freon and doesn't have recirculating air, power locks broke, electric seat adjuster barely works, tires are too small for the engine so flats and tire ware can be an issue, bad traction when not in 4x4 but it's only an issue during snow or when off roading. Summary: Everything that matters works amazingly and is super reliable but it does have many small problems.

1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB


Review

my truck has 129,000 and no problems till now blew a spark plug out of the head . not to exspensive $213.00 for a spark plug and a coil and a sleeve simular to a helix coil, but no drilling involed just insert and spread took less than 2 hours truck is a beast. ford screwed us on the gas but 18 on the freeway is'nt bad the harley makes up for the winter gas i spend !!! Parking sucks in a crowded place !


Best Features

for one i feel safe in this truck ! cars move right out of the way they want no part of this masive truck in thier rearview! tow pakage long bed and wench shoot the whole inside of the truck . i'm all around happy ! Henry Ford would be proud!!!!


Worst Features

bigger brake roaters on the front truck is a bit heavey when towing a big load. And put a handle inside to grab on the drivers side so you can get into the truck easier ! and make the drivers seat go up and down or stuff the seat so that we sit up higher i"M 5'11" I probably need to re stuff my seat it is 13 years old!!!

Review

Beware of Ford Diesel 7.3, bad fuel economy, hard to start, bad electronic, bad transmission, mechanics' nightmare. Turning radius is very bad.


Best Features

looks great, very comfortable.


Worst Features

get an Isuzu engine for this truck and a better transmission.

1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT 4dr Extended Cab SB


Review

I bought mine to tow my travel trailer. I recently changed the rear end to 430 limited slip and love the change for towing. At 96K I needed to repair the exhaust manifold bolts which was a major pain. Wheel bearings also don't last very long. Overall I love the truck. Mine is a 2WD version with the V10. It is a towing beast!


Best Features

Towing ability


Worst Features

Don't care for huge expanse of plastic on the dash. Should have a padded dash for looks and safety

Review

My Super Duty reached it's 10th B day in May. Its easy to rate a vehicle when its a year or two old with a few miles on it. My truck just passed 270k and it still looks better than any other 3 or 4 year old truck. It has pulled loads to 30k over trips of 6000 miles in mountains. Mileage never less than 16 - 20 empty and never added a qt of oil between changes of 5000 miles. This with the truck living mostly in Minnesota's salt and snow. This truck has never let me down even in the 9 winters with sub zero temps. To date the only items replaced were the normal consumables like brakes, wheel bearings, etc. Teh engine still runs like new teh tranny is solid and the body shows no rust.


Best Features

7.3 Diesel. Too bad Ford didn't stick with this engine. This is proof how the EPA standards can sometimes cause more harm than good. Interior comfort. 16 hr. days are a snap. Ease of maintenance. Tansmission is positive but yet comfortable when shifting. Solid body. Still no rattles.


Worst Features

Ford should go back and produce this truck again as it was then. It is absolutely as good as it can get.
