It just won't stop
By Richard on
1993 Ford F-250 XL 2dr Extended Cab LB
I love the power and braking, added try Y headers and it became a whole new engine and better mpg. I get 12 on the fwy and 9 in town. This is a daily driver that tows occasionally (10 mpg towing) and off roads on the weekend. Capt. chairs are good but armrests are to high for me (I am a tall guy). Got the manual shifted transfer case so the solenoid wouldn't fail me in the mud (experience from the dealership I worked at). Installed manual locking 4x4 hubs. I have had this truck airborne off roading before and broke steering box but was still able to drive home and then to work to put new one in. I have never messed with the A/C system and it still blows cold, not so great in southern California traffic.
The big engine (7.5L/460ci.) and brakes. Leg room and the plain simple design that just works great and doesn't break.
Electric cooling fans, so A/C works in the stop and go traffic in summer in socal, also would help fuel economy.
