2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XL 2WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)
Traded a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 Quadbcab Cummins DSL for 2001 F-250 Crew Lariat 7.3 Powerstroke straight up. I am doing less masonry and more white collar stuff. Dodge was dynamic and strong, but loud and awkward for a father with 3 boys. Interior - Going from the Dodge to the Ford was like going from a closet to a living room. The Ford build quality and attention to detail is far superior to the Dodge. The Ford is quieter, more stable and seems better rooted to the road. Its like an SUV on steroids. Exterior - Ford's body lines are cleaner, the hinges tighter and the little things, like a light under the hood and a locking tailgate, are much appreciated. Very glad I made that trade!
7.3 Powerstroke; Road handling, smoother ride. Interior appointments and ergonomics; handy storage compartment behind rear seat; quality radio, c/d, cassette; back seats that easily accommodate adults.
None. Ford never should have abandoned the 7.3 Liter Powerstroke. If you can find one, grab it!
