2005 Super Duty Evaluation
By dek200 on
2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
I bought this truck to replace my 1999 F-350. This 2005 is basically the same truck but with the 2005 upgrades. The 2005 has some extremely nice features and some great safety features: The power sliding back window. The heated seats. The backup sensors. The built in trailer braking system in the Tow Command package (it is everything and more than the ads depict; the best trailer brakes I have ever used). The running light/turn signal on the towing mirrors. The heated/sliding towing mirrors. The lighted vanity mirrors. The speed volume control on the radio. The power passenger seat. The shorter turning radius. The 5 speed automatic transmission. A better drive over all.
See the review. I like all of the improvements.
Cab and bed paint are different colors. Paint expert tells me the paint on the bed is too thin. Have had some engine problems due to faulty injectors and faulty repair. Broke down on interstate due to faulty repair. Dealer did excellent job repairing and priority service.
