1997 Ford F-250 Extended Cab Lariat 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
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!
On the fly 4x4, automatic lights and I love the leather seats.

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.
Favorites: 3/4 ton hauling and towing. Lots of power and solid build. Locking tailgate. Tailgate is built like Fort Knox. Looks good, tows and hauls great and drives like a big ole truck (drives new still).
Purchased in 1996 - no keyless entry available then.
1997 Ford F-250 Extended Cab HD XL 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB
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.
So much power, nice body syle, very solid build.
Better fuel economy is about all

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.
The Diesel. This is the best engine in a truck. There are so many 'tricks' that can be done to this engine, the power is unbelievable.
Better side mirrors. Some kind of West Coast mirror like on the newer trucks. A better way to open the sliding rear window. In an extended cab you really can't reach back and open the window while moving.
