1995 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Extended Cab SB


I bought my truck at an equipment auction. It had the 4.9L 6 cyl & 5 speed. When I bought the truck it had 105k miles on it. When I sold it 11 years later it had over 250k miles on it and still running strong. I averaged around 18MPG most of the time. If I drove only highway I could get up to 21mpg for a full size truck that is very impressive. I used it for work, and for fun. I hauled many heavy loads and full trailers with ease. I wish Ford would have continued th3 4.9L with the newer trucks. In my 11 years of owning it. I replaced a clutch, brake pads and a radiator. I bought it for $7k and sold it 11 years later for $3k. I wish I would have kept it ;-)

Best Features

Engine. More torque than the V8s and better fuel economy. Good heavy suspension, and smooth ride. Took 11 years of beatings and kept running strong.

Worst Features

body style was a bit boxy for my taste.
