    Short wheelbase Crew Cab and Superab styles are now offered with a 6.75-foot box in 2- and 4WD configurations, and an improved hub-locking system and transfer case equip all 4WD models. The 7.5L V8 receives a standard integral oil cooler, and a throttle-control module for power takeoffs with the 7.3L diesel is now optional.

A standard slotted style front bumper and trailer tow wiring harness (except chassis cab) complete the changes.

F-250 7.5

Vehicle: 1996 Ford F-250 HD XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

This has been a great truck. It replaced my 1986 when it was totaled in a collision. The '96 did have a transmission replacement at 66000mi but otherwise great. The 7.5 engine does best with a bigger exhaust system.




An excellent truck

I am the original owner. This truck has lived up to its maker's name ... Ford Tough. The brake problems that plagued earlier models is gone. This truck has no rattles. It pulls and pulls. I have the original batteries and they are still good. I have carried 4000 lbs in the back with no problem. I highly recommend this as a work truck for anyone as it has been reliable. The only repairs I have done are a starter relay, brakes, shocks, and glow plug relay. Thats it!
