1998 Ford F-150 XLT 3dr Extended Cab SB


I found this truck used last year and my wife just about killed me when I brought it home. Currently I have 272,000 plus miles on the original engine and transmission. I've pulled up to 25ft campers and up to 32ft boats with this truck. I've filled the bed with wood and it just keeps going. The body is excellent even after being backed into by an Envoy. The dent just popped out. I've replaced the tailgate handle, steering gear, and transmission oil cooler lines(all over 250K). I can't say enough about this truck. At 272k it still runs, drives, and shifts great and is still a good looking truck. Ford will be my next truck as well.

Best Features

Rear seat fold down for a solid flat surface. Comfortable seats. Lighted controls even the power windows. Body. Lots of cup holders and 12V power outlets.

Worst Features

Armrest for captain's chairs break easily. Bed tie downs. Brake controller prewiring.
