A real keeper of a pickup
By Saganashkee on


1996 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab LB


Bought this standard 2 door 8 ft bed 1996 F150 in 2000 just because I wanted a pickup. Since then I lived in rural IL south of Kankakee for 2 years and rural SE Georgia the last 7 years. It had 21k on it when I bought it and its pushing 95k now. The only problem is a worthless maintenance idiot light on the speedometer that turns itself on and off at will and tires that tend to go flat when a nail or railroad spike gos into one of them. Hey, I can deal with that! Without a doubt best and most enjoyable vehicle I've ever owned. I fully expect to be still driving it in 2017!

Best Features

Ease of maintenance and outstanding reliability. I don't see how it could be any better.

Worst Features

Don't change a thing!
