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.
Tight drive train. Step on it and you go, trailer in tow or not.
1997 Ford F-250 Regular Cab Lariat 2dr Regular Cab LB
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.
Lariat interior and controls are excellent. At the time they were better than many upscale cars. Fit and finish, reliability very good.
Power and fuel economy need improvement. Ride is harsh, even for a truck.
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.
