2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab XL 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)


Review

I am a Ford Truck person with having several over the years. the problem I have with them living in SW pa. is the RUST. The wheel lips on the bed have always been a area of concern. With this 250 I park it in a garage and keep it clean but it didn't make a difference. the only option is to buy a southern bed or get rid of the truck. My next move is to move to the F-350 diesel. I presently use this truck to move a 6600 lb skid steer and with the 5.4 it is a dog on any grade. I am happy that the mech. part has given me no problems but I think a heaver truck will satisify my req. I will buy another FORD


Best Features

Super Duty is the way to go. I would go for an XLT thou. Truck looks good from the design features

Review

The 5.4 Triton V-8 and the V-10 are blowing out spark plugs thru out the USA. If you google this problem you will find out there are only 3 threads for the spark plug to grip to and the heads are aluminum. Sorry no fix as a heli-coil is made of steel and it heats up ar a different temperature than aluminum, then the heli-coil also blows out. This happens on Ford super duty trucks from 1999 thru 2005, Be careful not to purchase this poorly engineered garbage. Dont believe me? Google it! ~!!


Best Features

Selling it.


Worst Features

Do not buy a Ford 5.4 or V-10 aluminum block and engine.

Review

This truck is awesome! It is awesome for off roading due to its ground clearance and 4.10 gears. If only it had the power of Chevy's 6.0 v8.


Best Features

Front end styling and that's it.


Worst Features

Better ride quality.

Review

Currently have about 48,000 miles on this truck. Power is adequate. Mileage is great. Gets about 18 mpg highway. Not bad for a 4WD 3/4 ton. Haven't had any trouble with this truck yet other than an ABS light coming on and off recently. I dont like the way the truck handles on the highway. Ford redid their front suspension on their 2005 models though. Much better! Good clearance for off road.


Best Features

Gas mileage, reliability. ground clearance good.


Worst Features

Road handling characteristics could be better.

Review

Other than the new transmission, transfer case, front wheel bearings, air bag parts, oxygen sensor and bad fuel mileage this is a great truck. Perofrmance wise it is great, although it does squat pretty bad with a full load on the back. I have a fisher 8' plow on the front and salt spreader on the back which the truck handles great. The fuel mileage is about 10- 11 mpg local 13 highway (with a 4:10 rear). If this truck had not given me so many reliabilty issues I would put up with the mileage but I feel Ford has failed on this one.


Best Features

adequate power and performance.


Worst Features

Better fuel mileage and quality of vehicle.
