1995 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB


Owned a 1995 F-150 XL Regular Cab Short Bed with the 5.0 V8 and 5-speed manual transmission.

The truck was fun to drive with the 5 speed.
Did occasional hauling/towing, but not every day.

Body style:
I love the boxy body style and simple interior.
I was lucky enough to find one without power windows or door locks.
The only real upgrades to the interior were a cloth bench seat (instead of vinyl) and cruise control. I added $75 aftermarket CD player/radio after buying.

Stock 5.0 V8 was a bit under-powered and thirsty-averaged 10-15 mpg.

Weak link was the 5-speed
tranny-Ford used the same tranny used on the 4/6 cyl Ranger.
The F-250 got the heavy duty version, although a limited number of F-150's came with the heavy duty version in 1995 (I was not lucky enough to get one of these :( ) Went through 2 clutch replacements in 80K miles. That being said, I still would buy an F-150 with a manual (if available) over an automatic transmission.
