1996 Ford F-250 HD XLT 4dr Crew Cab LB

Review

Wife's truck to haul travel and horse trailers, and run around to dog shows from FL to WI. She didn't know she would love it so much. No engine mechanical problems after 210,000 mi. One bad door light switch and one elec. window only real problems to date. Still reliable for her to take long trips. May replace at 300K w/4x4 diesel long bed crew cab.

Best Features

Fuel mileage ~18-20. Can let diesel idle for hours in the hot South to keep AC on our dogs left in the cab. Tows heavy trailers well, lots of power. We took the rear seat out to carry dog crates and gear in AC - only takes 1/2 hr to reinstall.

Worst Features

Hub caps expensive and easily lost. Make engine heater plug easier to reach. Step on front bumper to access engine. Place to add coolant additive.
