2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XLT 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)
Outstanding vehicle in every way. 12-13 mpg city/highway with 6.8L and 3:73 non limited slip rear. Best mileage at 16 mpg empty on open road at 60 mph. Motor has plenty of power and is good choice if diesel is not an option. Motor is strong at 97k, burns 1/3 to 1/2 quart between 4k oil changes. I will look to replace it with similar options. Thanks Ford!
Exterior -- full chrome front bumper (no colored plastics). Grill is nice retro of earlier 1950's F series.
Higher front springs -- remember the ol' 1972 F-250 "hi boy". The body needs protective corner covering on lower front sides of pickup bed. Rocks kick up and chip the paint on lower pickup box where it separates from main body.
