2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab XLT 2WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
My powerstroke diesel crew cab has dragged my 11,000 pound fifth wheel all over America for the last three years without a whimper. There's tons of room inside, and we stay comfortable no matter how long the trip or how hot the weather. It pulls my house up pretty stout grades at 70 mph without downshifting, which is amazing to me. With the bedcover closed and not towing, I get 20 mph on the road at 75 mph and a consistent 17 around town. What's not to like?
2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
Bought in June of 2005, This F250 SD extended cab LB 4x4 has been excellent so far. It is the "true blue" color which looks awesome. Inside, captains chairs with a huge center console. There are more cupholders than seats, (5) seats. (6) cupholders. Very easy to clean cloth. A/C thumbs up. Also very quiet, even with dual 4" straight pipes. 5.4L engine could use a little more power and the headlights could be brighter but truck is an excellent fun to drive vehicle, except in tight spots. Gas mileage with tonneau cover averages about 20 on highway, 8-12 in city. Braking power is enormous. Truck runs great with almost 61,000 miles. Only the trailer hitch rusted quite a bit but has not gotten to anything else.G
4X4, A/C, power windows & locks. C/D + cassette radio. Big center console. extended cab longbed. Takes up 2 parking spots! Excellent visibility!
Better headlights, more 5.4 V8 power. better undercoating for rust. deeper rain gutters.

7.3 litre diesel w/6-speed manual. The
high pressure oil pumped leaked and
needed to be replaced. The clutch
master cylinder failed. The pass.
window rattled when down. The tailgate
lock, locks automatically. After the
autopump sensor stops the flow of fuel
to the tank, you can slowly pump
another 6 gallons in the tank. The
front rotors needed to be replaced or
turned every 5,000 miles due to
warping. This is a chronic and known
problem with these vehicles. Worst of
all there is EXCESSIVE
driveline lash in the rear
end/transmission/transfer case. It is
VERY noticable between shifts and upon
moderate acceleration. I wouldn't buy
another Ford pickup.
Engine. Pulls heavy loads well. Cruise
control is great. Can go 600 miles on
a tank of fuel (about 30 gallons).
100,000 mile engine warranty. It's
HUGE and gets MAJOR respect/fear on
the road (no one honks at me when I
drive like an ass!) Cavernous
Tighten up the manufacturing
tolerances in the driveline! Recall
and redesign the front rotors!
Interior design is boring.
