1996 ford f350 4wd lb

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Ford F-350 XLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB

I use this truck like a truck. I don't expect it to be fun or drive like a car. I haul hay and horses. It restored my faith in American built vehicles. For 11 years I drove it with virtually no repairs and only casual maintenance. Today I will replace the u joints, some seals, a cracked manifold but overall, still just an excellent workhorse doing what it was designed to do. Other than brake linings, trans flush, radiator flush, and oil that is all I have done since I purchased with 3,000 miles on it.

Vehicle: 1996 Ford F-350 XLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB

I bought this truck to replace my Chevy pickup I had. I pull a 28' stock trailer with my Ford truck with no problem. The 7.3L turbo diesel engine is the best diesel ever. My truck has 230,700 miles on it. I have a friend who has the same truck with 435,000 miles on it. These trucks ride like tanks, but pull everything. The truck catches a lot of peoples attentions. A trans and exhaust temp guage helps alot on these trucks.

This is the best truck I have had ever and I would never trade or get rid of it for anything else. This truck is built to last forever.




Not bad diesel f350

Vehicle: 1996 Ford F-350 XLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB

This isn't a bad older F350 diesel. Works well for towing our smaller 5th wheel with power and economy. Interior isn't as refined as the newer trucks, but it works for us.

Very Reliable and stylish with the customize package. Lots of power and acceleration. Redesigned engine burns very clean.

Good truck

Vehicle: 1996 Ford F-350 XLT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB

this is my first truck and it has been a blast to own. The 4x4 works great and this truck tows just about anything you put behind it. The ride is a little stiff, but if I'd wanted a car, I'd have bought a car.
