1993 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I've been reading these reviews, and I recently purchased a 93' F150 with 216,000 miles on it for $500. I knew going into this that it would need at least another $1,500 of work. Basically a major tune up (oil change/filter, belts/hoses, new universal joints, antifreeze). Some more of the items replaced were just precautionary to bring this truck a step up from where it was. I bought this from a guy who lives in California and drove it across the country several times. He also had a daily route to work of 100 miles back and forth. Since there's little humidity in California you wouldn't be able to tell from under the truck that it had so many miles. Virtually no rust.


Worst Features

if you're going to buy an older truck with a lot of miles you have to know the right people to be able to afford bringing it to where you want to have it for a while

1993 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

Previously I had a 1997 F 150 that after 295,000 miles the engine finally failed. So i was broke and needed a trailer puller. Ended up with a 93 extended cab 351W 4x4 long bed with trailer package. It had 135k on it when i bought it's now 147. I have replaced the engine with a 351 RV improved remanufactured engine. I think I have a tranny problem so the power is not good. The mileage is about 12 mpg which will be an issue when fuel gets to $4.00 a gallon. It is a daily driver now. For the money that you will spend on a new truck, this is a good value. Even if you invest in a rebuilt motor and tranny. It gets you down the road.


Best Features

body style, long bed, extended cab paint scheme.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy, smoother ride, rust resistant nuts and bolts, tougher upholstery fabric

1993 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

Got this used for $800. Needed another $1200 to get it into good mechanical condition. Interior is still very nice; the body is rusty in the usual Michigan places. 205+K miles on the straight six w/auto trans ... still runs PERFECTLY. Amazing powertrain.


Best Features

The straight-six motor. Overall reliability. Hooks up real well for 2wd.


Worst Features

More rust-resistance ... the driver's seat belt mount rusted out completely! I welded in some angle iron. I hope it holds!

1993 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Extended Cab Stepside SB


Review

This truck has left me stranded multiple times. Sure, its good looking, but thats about it. Its constantly breaking down. Its at 182,000 miles and its like it needs to be rebuilt from the ground up. Maybe back in the day it was a good truck, but it does not age well at all. Oh yeah, Paint fades badly, and the vehicle rusts a lot.


Best Features

Looks good.


Worst Features

RELIABILITY is a must. Other than that it would be OK.
