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


Review

The 7.3 turbo diesel is excellent tied to the 5 speed manual transmission. The drivers seat is comfortable after 200k while the interior is like new for its age. awesome heat in the winter and cold factory ac in the summer. Owned for 3 years after purchase replaced turbocharger, glow plugs and o rings on fuel injectors, waterpump and fuel lift pump. Would recommend removing ebpv on turbo as it sticks in the winter which can cause your turbo bearings to go out as did on my truck.

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.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

Styling and ride


Worst Features

Bigger (3") exhaust system. This helps lower engine temp and extends power band.

Review

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!


Best Features

Good looking, comfortable interior, always starts. Gets pretty good fuel mileage of 16.5 overall. Stops very well for a big truck.


Worst Features

The autolocking hubs stink! If you are stuck, you must move forward 4 feet to engage. I have had to have them replaced under warranty one time. Oh, yea, the fuel gauges. Ford still can't get this one correct. They stopped working.

Review

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.


Best Features

Diesel engine, power and towing ability


Worst Features

replace fuel tank fill so you can fill at big truck stop fuel stations
