1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty Extended Cab 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

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


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.

1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty Extended Cab Lariat 4dr Extended Cab LB


Review

Ford knows how to make a pulling truck although they give up decent fuel economy in the process. My V10 gets about 11 mpg with the 4.30 gears. The truck is very reliable but it does use a quart of oil between changes. The transmission is bullet proof with regular fluid changes. Previous comments were correct, you can't go anywhere other than on pavement without 4x4 due to the weight.


Best Features

Power, styling, reliability.


Worst Features

A lot of plastic in the cab which squeaks a lot when going down the road empty. Had to buy a louder radio to combat the noise.

1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty Extended Cab Lariat 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB


Review

I purchased my 1999 in 2005 for about $15,000 with about 45,000 miles on it, and it had a 5th wheel hitch and normal receiver hitch already on it. Mine is the Lariat with 4WD, and full 8' bed, with the V-10 gasoline. Primary use was to ocasionaly pull a boat with the normal hitch or horse trailer with the 5th wheel. Does a very good job pulling either one! Gas mileage is poor, but with the big V-10 you should expect that. I only get about 10-11 mpg highway when not pulling, and with a heavy horse trailer loaded it drops down to the 8 mpg range on highway. It seats 5 with no issues and is comfortable. You do have to "climb up" into it - and ride is stiff when not loaded or pulling.


Best Features

Very reliable - I only put about 3000 miles per year on mine, and have only had I minor issue, with the speed sensor on the rear differential going out - I replaced myself for $10.


Worst Features

Doing any work on the V-10 can be a challenge - I am 6'2" and sometimes have to use a stepladder. Replacing the spark plugs is very tough, and the year ones are very difficult to access.
