Rough Riding Rascal
By Western Plainsman on
2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty 2dr Regular Cab XL 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)
Unloaded, this pickup rides so stiff
it's uncomfortable. Gas mileage on
the V-8, A/T is 14 on the road, 10
hauling an antique car on a trailer.
The power is sufficient, but that's
about all. Now for the good stuff:
It's surprisingly good in the mud in
4WD. This is a reliable, rattle free
Haven't had to return to the
dealership for any repairs. Pickup
has good finish and is decently well
assembled. Dana front & Ford full-
floating rear axles both outstanding.
More power & gas mileage (the only 2
areas where GM's are better). Lower
the body so it's not so difficult to
enter & exit.
