1999 Ford F-350 Super Duty Extended Cab XLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB


Review

This is by far the best truck I have ever owned. I have owned 2 Chevy 3/4 tons and a Toyota pickup and by far this truck out does any of the other trucks. This truck has the limited slip front and rear vith the 6.8 V10. I have 111,205 miles on her and she hasn't failed me yet. All you need to do is change the oil. The truck has great power and will out accelerate about any other truck out there and tows like a dream. I've hauled a 20 ft trailer loaded down with 2 tons of gravel and the bed and you can barley tell it's there. And the truck will climb up any hill offroad and does great on the trails it fits in


Favorite Features

The best feature with this truck is the power. It does everything you need it to and still gets 15 mpg on the freeway


Suggested Improvements

The only thing I would improve on this truck is the trailer hook ups. They should offer more than just a four prong flat on the rear

Review

i bought mine off lease @ 140,000 miles, rear leafs broke before I could put any weight in it, winter came, it wouldn't start unless plugged in. Changed the entire glow plug system and still no start, drive shaft failed, transmission failed, front hub bearing failed, cup holder face broke, and the cabin had wind noise from the doors. I finally gave up throwing money at an expensive diesel truck. I will never own another computer controlled diesel; it never had a trouble code and no one could figure out the cold start problem... dealer told me the engine was worn out and needed to be replaced @140,000 miles. The transmission is one year & one model only and usually has to be ordered from Ford.


Favorite Features

Truck had good power, rode beautiful, wasn't too bad on fuel considering it was 7.3 litre's. Cabin was nice manual locking hubs are great. Solid front axle has Chevys IFS beat hands down. but the transmission is the weak link and VERY expensive to replace in the 99 F-350 model.


Suggested Improvements

Better quality control. F-350 should not fall apart @140,000 miles. Worst part was cold starts anything below 32 degrees F was near impossible to start unless plugged in overnight. Transmission in the 99 F-350 is one year, one model only and a replacement is very expensive and usually only direct from Ford!

Review

Had numerous 4x4 P/U's.6-Chevy's, 2- Dodge's,and 1 other Ford.This truck is by far the closest to a perfect description of a truck. Carry load,2 tons gravel, no problem.Pull load, 32 ft 5th wheel w/21 ft boat in tandem, no problem.Bought 7.3 liter w/125 K,has chip and aftermarket turbo.265hp & 575lb torque.Can actually accelerate up steep hills loaded.13 mpg pulling load,and 16 mpg unloaded highway @ 65mph w/373 gears.4 whl disc have great stopping power.Lockers in front and rear great match for diesel.Ext cab great for short trips w/pass and extra luggage.Rides like a truck until loaded.All this from a vehicle w/130 K miles.Ford tran will outlast Dodge.


Favorite Features

As stated above,gotta have 7.3 diesel, 4x4 w/lockers, extra cab space,4 whl disc.Chip and turbo package also have aftermarket gauges which helps monitor what's going on.SuperDuty frame is stiff, solid. IFS tons better than solid axle for ride and traction.Tie down points in bed nice.


Suggested Improvements

Installed K&N air filter on front end,but could use bigger dia. exhaust. Diesel basically big air pumping machine that needs big breaths. Factory tires stink,tire up according to your individual needs,whether on road or off.Little quieter cab, not from motor so much as road noise.

Review

Very comfortable, quality ride,great mileage, the very best truck I have ever owned. truck #6 for me have owned dodges,chevys, gmc and now 2 Fords and am very impressed with this truck above all others.


Favorite Features

4x4 system is a great and also lifesaving feature, being able to shift on the fly for a limited slip traction advantage while tooling down the road can really help if road conditions change when you blink. the front diff. lock can really put the rubber down in mud or dirt when needed,


Suggested Improvements

If I new how to improve it I wouldn't say it here but sell it to Ford, because this truck will be a winner for years to come.

Review

Wow.. A real tough truck to say the least. They hold their resale value better than Dodge and Chevy. The Powerstroke is the only way to go. Drove the big 3... the Ford is hands down a better Vehicle. They are also the hardest to find on the used market which might tell you somthing. As far as fuel... what are you crying about? Its a one ton Dually! 13 city 16.5 highway loaded or empty. Its better than an Expedition.. or Navigator. My 4WD Ranger only got 15-17 MPG. This is a true commercial vehicle with more power than you could ask for without buying a Semi Truck. And by the way... trucks are supposed to ride like trucks!


Favorite Features

The Powerstroke Diesel... Don't buy the gas engine unless you own a filling station. Resale values are over book value.


Suggested Improvements

Interior is a little thin... Leather seating is not durable and is very thin. A better gage setup would be nice... oil temp-turbo-trans temp etc. a tougher rear bumper would be nice... brighter back-up lamps would be nice.
