What a truck
By Bob Friebus on 08/20/10 16:55 PM (PDT)

1997 Ford F-250 Extended Cab Lariat 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

I have owned this truck for 11 years and have done very little other than scheduled maintenance. I have hauled trailers up mountains, gone 4 wheeling over very large boulders, driven very long stretches with no problems what- so-ever. I have 198,000 miles on the odometer and have been amazed by the continued reliability of this truck. Ford has my business for life!

Best Dollar I Ever Spent

Review

This truck does everything well. What's amazing today, 13 years later, is its reliability and it drives new. "Built Ford Tough" is true. This isnt a commercial, just 13 years of ownership. I bet the truck has 13 more years left. Has 120K now and should do 250k. After 1200 miles, always used Mobil1. Replaced shocks and tires normal interval. Oxygen sensor replaced once and just changed the plugs at 120K and engine sounds new and runs out perfect.

F-250 4wd HD 7.5L

1997 Ford F-250 Extended Cab HD XL 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB

Review

We bought this truck from a drilling company after it had 155,000 miles on it. Its a tank. The drilling company obviously did not take it easy on it and we have had minimal problems with it. The head gasket blew on it and some minor brake issues. With the 7.5L 460 and a 5 spd it has alot of power. The fuel milage is not the best because of the large v8. The truck is very solid and reliable. Suspension is very strong for hauling and towing. Lots of power and braking control with large trailers.

F250 4X4 SC HD LB DIESEL

Review

Great truck. I've had a lot of trucks in my business, many Fords. My experience has always been a big truck with a little engine and lots of gears. Poor power to weight and constant shifting. The Navistar DIT diesel is definetly the way to go with a truck. When the turbo spools up, there's no catching it. It'll pull a house off the foundation and gets good mileage (for a truck) as well. There are plenty of chatrooms for Q & A on this setup if you have a problem, and the guys will give you lots of responses to keep it going.

Heavy Duty Diesel

Review

I've had a little trouble with the capacitor on the diesel. However, Ford has a 3rd generation capacitor that is now reliable. I added a leaf all around to raise the truck, rather than using a lift kit.Happy with the results. This truck is extremely reliable and will do anything and get me anywhere. Put 265 tires on it right away. Plastic trim on the inside of the XLT is fragile Rear seat is ok, although we've had teenagers sit in the back across the country twice. If you get a diesel, get the manual transmission. You get the great advantage of using engine compression off-road and in poor road conditions.

One of the best Trucks EVER!

Review

After driving this truck for snow plowing, pulling a 30 foot boat, and as a daily driver I have come to one conclusion, that this truck can perform at anytime you want. This is a great truck for doing anything.
