7.3 nothing better

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

Bought used with 17k, station in san diego for two years and drove home up in Washington State just short of us/candian border(1400 miles oneway) 4 times a year. Best ride and fuel economy for a 3/4 ton truck (avg 18, best 23 mpg). Never miss a beat and and easy on the pocket. Currently hauling 26 ft TravelTrailer and no lack of power.




Love that truck

The 1996 F-250 is the old body style that was introduced for 1980, and refreshed in 1987 and 1992. Any body accessory for 1992-1996 will work. The 1997 F-250 was split - the light duty version was c...
