2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
I found this vehicle excellent on the highway, comfort and acceleration is very good. I also found the truck to handle very nicely in town. Parking in a lot is a little difficult, but to be expected for a big truck. I have heard that Ford has a problem with this engine but this was not my experience. I am somewhat skeptical of buying another one because of the "lemon" factor. BUT mine has been very good. I have driven the new 2007 King Ranch version like mine, very little difference.
I like everything about this truck, body style, Power Stroke, King Ranch is very nice.
The 4X4 makes a noise the is concerning. I did not take mine in for the noise but a friend said they told him nothing was wrong with his for the same noise...I would rather not hear the sound of stress.
