Vehicle: 1997 Ford F-350 XL 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB

Great truck that does everything I want. You don't buy a 1-ton for comfort and fuel economy - you buy it to work. This truck has been driven hard without a whimper. Perhaps the best looking OEM PU ever. As with all Ford trucks of that body style, fuel pumps and power steering pump are poorly designed. Doesn't seem to have the power a 460 should have, but it does have oversize tires and has lived a rough life of driving into trees, pulling trees, and being covered in mud.




If you could only own

Vehicle: 1997 Ford F-350 XLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB

I bought this new in '97, still own it and probably will never have to buy another truck. I know that I rated the fuel mileage high - but what do you expect from that engine, nothing but torque and power. Has performed great from the deserts to the colorado mountains and the Maine winters!




What a beast

Vehicle: 1997 Ford F-350 XLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB

This is by far the best truck ever made. This could only be made by ford. The 7.3 diesel engine will last forever and the body style is beautiful




One tough truck

Vehicle: 1997 Ford F-350 XLT 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB

This truck can do anything I've ever tried to do. No excuses, one tough and capable truck. 7.3 liter turbo diesel with the 4.10 gears can pull or haul just about anything.




Great truck

Vehicle: 1997 Ford F-350 XLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB

Absolutely love this truck. Have always loved the body style and this is the last year it was made. Bought the truck with 200,000 miles on it and only had to replace the glow plugs (common on these engines). Other than oil changes and usual wear parts like brakes and tie rod ends, I haven't had to spend a dime on it. Rides a little rought but I have a 6 inch lift on a 1 ton truck so it comes with the territory. I'll drive this one till it can't be driven any more and then probably look for another one.

Best ever

Vehicle: 1997 Ford F-350 XLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB

This is the best truck ever built! I have 300,000 miles on it, and it will still burn the tires off the rims! Nothing else like. It was built when trucks were trucks, men were men, and the women liked us that way!

When I said F-250, I meant the Superduty F-250 not the F-250LD. The F-250 Superduty looks just like the F-350 Superduty. But for the point of discussion, if you put a 99 F-350 Superduty next to a 92...

Ford may have changed their ABS policy for 2000, but in 1999, it's my understanding that the policy was that ABS is standard equipment on all vehicles with GVWRs over 10,000 pounds. That means that i...

lets banter, shall we? I agree the t-150 will be a decent truck, but it will only compete with the F-150. Even then, Toyota can only produce 100,000 trucks. They only sold 27,000 the first year on ...
