2001 Ford F-350 Super Duty 2dr Regular Cab XL 2WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 5M)
I always wanted an F-350. When I got it I was not disappointed. The only con is Ford did not design this truck with a infared ignition or any other kind of anti theft device. My truck has been stolen three times, recovered every time (lucky) with minimal damage. If you buy invest in a good viper systen vx770 and a fuel cut off system or a ECM cut off system. It dont stop em from breaking in. Buy it will keep em from taking it.
It is a beautiful symphony of metal and leather. Power comming out my ears. Fuel for this motor is awesome for the motor size, 13MPG city 18 MPG highway. 16 towing a 2800 pound boat.
F-Series Lacks any real anti theft features. The door lock is imbedded in moulded plastic. To easy to break with a screw driver. Make it out of metal. A coded key or infared ignition system would be great start to real anti-theft devices. An optional GPS tracking unit would be a nice added feat
