    The 1998 F-150 gets a 50th Anniversary decal affixed to the lower left corner of the windshield. Other changes include making the locking tailgate standard on XLT and Lariat trims, optional on XL and Standard models. Foglights become optional this year on all four-wheel-drive models except for the Lariat, which gets them standard. An STX package featuring 17-inch tires, aluminum wheels and color-keyed grille debuts as an option for the XLT 2WD. The Lariat receives a color-keyed steering column, leather-wrapped steering wheel and outside power signal mirrors.

Good truck

by on
Vehicle: 1997 Ford F-250

This has been the best pickup truck that I have ever owned. It has done the work of ten trucks.




Good 97 f250

Vehicle: 1997 Ford F-250

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.




Solid truck

Vehicle: 1997 Ford F-250

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.




Dependable truck

Vehicle: 1997 Ford F-250

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.




This is one tough truck.

Vehicle: 1997 Ford F-250

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.
