Great truck

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

I have owned new and old Ford p/u. The body styles of these trucks are the best. The last 1994 Ford I had I finally sold at 523,000 miles this one now has 212,000 miles. Not a problem yet.




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

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

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!

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.

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...
