1997 Ford F-250 HD XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

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.

Favorite Features

Diesel, 4WD, Heavy DUTY load rating. Versatility.

Suggested Improvements

Less plastic.
