2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty XL 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


This is my sixth new Ford truck and third new Super Duty. Just picked up my 2008 SD King Ranch 4WD SB last week. Not impressed yet with my first diesel. Getting just under 13 in town without a heavy foot. Ordered this with most everything, so very nice. Hard to deal with the lack of throttle response. Seems like diesel is working way too hard to move truck up to highway speed and could be related to base weight and 3.73. Pushing 3.55 to boost economy = dog. Light tan interior is impossible to keep clean. SD FX4 lacks premium interior option like F-150 FX4.

Best Features

Better tow mirrors, lower headlights, rear camera option, better audio options, updated interior, hydro boost brakes, wide mounted fog lights, memory package, bed extender, quieter diesel, chrome package, 08 20" rims, improved gauge cluster and message display, rear ride stability, rear floor vents

Worst Features

Overall cost is too high, six speed tranny, bring back mini glove box, useful rear seat anchor points, better fuel economy, dark interior on Lariat and King Ranch, cheaper NAV radio, bring back colors and rebates for Harley, satellite radio that supports XM and Sirius, rear storage and better cup holders
