I've owned my 1991 F250HD for 12 years
now. I use it primarily for hauling
building supplies & firewood, and
winter (snow) driving. I take this work
horse back on the logging trails deep
within the forest in the mountainous
regions of the Sierra Nevadas. The
engine is so powerful you don't realize
you have an extremely heavy load. The
brakes are undersized for this
capacity, especially if you are
decending from the higher elevations
and using the brakes regularly.
It can sit for months in the summer
time and when I'm ready to use it in
the winter, it fires right up without
skipping a beat. I'm still using all
original parts except for the battery
and the engine fluids.
Ford has made considerable improvements
over the years in comfort and luxury.
However, the base truck still remains
the same ... extremely tough, reliable
