1997 Ford F-250 Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

Bought at 62k, now at 97k. Strongest pickup I have ever owned. Trailer pulling dream. Only has the 4.6 and still pulls like a mule. 100% dependable. Moving into a Super Duty, but sure going to miss this truck.


Favorite Features

Tight drive train. Step on it and you go, trailer in tow or not.


Suggested Improvements

Has 7 stud wheels. Should be 8.

1997 Ford F-250 Regular Cab Lariat 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

No major problems (yet). Mine has the small v8 with tow package so it is slow going up hills with a trailer. At 100k miles transmission is starting to have rough shifts when cold. Haven't done much towing or city driving and it has a cooler as part of the tow package. Original Goodyear tires lasted 92k miles! Still on original disk brake pads at 108k miles. Best truck I have owned.


Favorite Features

Lariat interior and controls are excellent. At the time they were better than many upscale cars. Fit and finish, reliability very good.


Suggested Improvements

Power and fuel economy need improvement. Ride is harsh, even for a truck.

Review

I've enjoyed this truck. It's a work truck. I've had 4 brake jobs - too often in my opinion. Other than that it's been flawless and always ready to go. Very comfortable, even on 8 hour drives.


Favorite Features

The load-leveling suspension. I can load it to the max and it doesn't drop in the rear.


Suggested Improvements

Improve the brake life.

Review

This truck is a 3/4 ton ford f-250 light duty. It has a peppy engine good it's size. This same engine (5.4l) is not any good for the full size f-250. This truck has no prblem doing most any job u dish out.


Favorite Features

The 3/4 ton is a great suspension for it's size.


Suggested Improvements

Maybe a less rounded space ship like front.
