My Super Duty reached it's 10th B day in May. Its easy to rate a vehicle when its a year or two old with a few miles on it. My truck just passed 270k and it still looks better than any other 3 or 4 year old truck. It has pulled loads to 30k over trips of 6000 miles in mountains. Mileage never less than 16 - 20 empty and never added a qt of oil between changes of 5000 miles. This with the truck living mostly in Minnesota's salt and snow. This truck has never let me down even in the 9 winters with sub zero temps. To date the only items replaced were the normal consumables like brakes, wheel bearings, etc. Teh engine still runs like new teh tranny is solid and the body shows no rust.
I bought this truck brand new in 1999 I pulled a 30 foot travel trailer from Louisville Kentucky to California several times averaging 16 - 18 miles per gallon empty average 22 - 24 miles/gallon I had to replace the starter alternator minor repairs best truck I ever owned 7.3 is great motor
I bought mine to tow my travel trailer. I recently changed the rear end to 430 limited slip and love the change for towing. At 96K I needed to repair the exhaust manifold bolts which was a major pain. Wheel bearings also don't last very long. Overall I love the truck. Mine is a 2WD version with the V10. It is a towing beast!
i bought this truck a month ago. The original owner purchased it new in 1999. It have 144,000 miles and runs perfect. Fuel economy it great i have a 2006 honda ridgeline and the 7.3 powerstroke gets better fuel mileage. Mixed city and highway i get 18-20.
I bought this truck with 35,000 miles
on it and I have never had a any
trouble with it whatsoever. This truck
is very stable on the highway. I use
this truck both as an off road
and highway vehicle. I have a farm
which makes it necessary to get this
truck in a soft muddy barn yard as
well as the fields using 4WD.
I also have pulled heavy fertilizer
spreaders up steep grades with this
truck on the highway. The Triton
engine performed far better than I
The fuel compsupmtion is a little
high at about 12 to 15 mpg, but, with
this big engine that's to be expected.
I would buy this truck again in a
