2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat 4dr SuperCab 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

After 3 recalls a driver door handle that fell off, water seperator going bad, and a rattle in my driver door I still love this truck. The king ranch pkg is excellent and the truck still looks like new after 60,000 miles. Engine has been bullet proof with excellent power. Gas milage for a big truck is good at 18 with no AC or 15.5 with the AC on.PS the rattle in the door was fixed by a simple piece of electrical tape applied to the door latch post where the door meets the frame. This is a nice addition to my $50,000 plus truck LOL!


Best Features

King ranch pkg, interior room, and 4 drink holders.


Worst Features

The seats are horrible, they are far to skinny and the lateral supports dig into your legs. Gm has much more comfortable seats in my previous Escalade EXT.

2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat 4dr SuperCab 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Just got a used 2008 f250, w/ turbodiesel engine. Blast to drive. Unending loads of power. Drags my travel trailer around like its not even there. Built in brake controller great. Power towing mirrors are a dream. Quietest diesel engine I have ever heard. Don't bother with gas engine.


Best Features

Exudes coolness factor, the Diesel rocks!, built like a tank. Everything on it is big.


Worst Features

Overall gas mileage stinks. What do you expect? It is the price to pay for ultimate capability.

Review

Really folks this is a great truck and even better if you do some very minor tweaks. There is lag when you want to pass someone. Ford put that "feature" there to preserve the life of the transmission. The gas mileage stinks becase the EPA said we needed cleaner burning engines.. oh the irony. You can feel bumps more compared to chevy. Chevy uses IFS on the front end and when that chevy IFS breaks, then you see the reason ford stuck by solid front and rear axles. With one modification you can increase your HP and Torque by 50%, have 100% throttle control when passing, and improve your MPG by 30%. You can do this by buying a tuner for about $1500.00. Check out a diesel forum and you'll see.


Best Features

Its very cheap and easy to Modify. The comfort on long trips is really great for everyone. The towing is 2nd to none. Surprisingly the handling is pretty good for this 4ton beast. Due your research and you will see F250 is the best all around heavy hauler.


Worst Features

Get better tires. The stock tires have terrible traction even on mildly damp grass. Make sure you get a TUNER KIT!

Review

This is the 4th pu I have owned from Ford. This is my lest favorite. It hesitates with fuel injection when you are passing. My favorite was the 96. The leather seats are very uncomfortable even teenagers complain. Poor mileage. Last truck got 20. The bst I have gotten is 14.7 Very disappointed. Interior is nice and roomy. Don't like the height of the truck. 20 in wheels have shimmy when you go over bumps. Incredibly rough. If I could afford to, I would trade it in.


Best Features

heated seats woohoo


Worst Features

increased comfort of seats, work on the suspension, decrease height and engine performance
