2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty XL 4dr SuperCab SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Really folks this is a great truck and even better if you do some very minor tweaks. There is lag when you want to pass someone. Ford put that "feature" there to preserve the life of the transmission. The gas mileage stinks becase the EPA said we needed cleaner burning engines.. oh the irony. You can feel bumps more compared to chevy. Chevy uses IFS on the front end and when that chevy IFS breaks, then you see the reason ford stuck by solid front and rear axles. With one modification you can increase your HP and Torque by 50%, have 100% throttle control when passing, and improve your MPG by 30%. You can do this by buying a tuner for about $1500.00. Check out a diesel forum and you'll see.


Best Features

Its very cheap and easy to Modify. The comfort on long trips is really great for everyone. The towing is 2nd to none. Surprisingly the handling is pretty good for this 4ton beast. Due your research and you will see F250 is the best all around heavy hauler.


Worst Features

Get better tires. The stock tires have terrible traction even on mildly damp grass. Make sure you get a TUNER KIT!

2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty Lariat 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This is the 4th pu I have owned from Ford. This is my lest favorite. It hesitates with fuel injection when you are passing. My favorite was the 96. The leather seats are very uncomfortable even teenagers complain. Poor mileage. Last truck got 20. The bst I have gotten is 14.7 Very disappointed. Interior is nice and roomy. Don't like the height of the truck. 20 in wheels have shimmy when you go over bumps. Incredibly rough. If I could afford to, I would trade it in.


Best Features

heated seats woohoo


Worst Features

increased comfort of seats, work on the suspension, decrease height and engine performance

2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty XLT 4dr SuperCab 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

I have a 08 250 6.4 great power. I move up from a f150, not because of power. Braking was not the best when towing 7500 lbs. Now with bigger brakes & controler it's on.


Best Features

Brakes & brake controler. let's not leave out POWER.


Worst Features

N/A

Review

I have had a lot of trucks and by far this is the best one. This is my first diesel so I'm still in uncharted waters but so far I'm very impressed and I think you would be too. Tons of power and just an overall great styling truck. Fuel mileage is what you would expect with a big diesel but in comparison with my old 04 Dodge Ram 1500 with the Hemi and AWD it's almost the same. Around 13-16 on highway. And 10 in city. Ford did a great job by redoing the mirrors for easy seeing. Truck rides nice on the highway and the engine never lets you down.


Best Features

The raw power. Huge interior. Safe feeling size. The exhaust cleaning system. I love the tow command and the fact that aux switches are already installed and wired up


Worst Features

None really.

2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty FX4 4dr SuperCab 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

No problems so far. Diesel is not for the economy minded as this is a heavy vehicle not to mention all the new emission controls the engine has to deal with. Feels solid as a tank. Very happy with purchase.


Best Features

Love the bold interior and exterior style.


Worst Features

Seats are not as comfortable as GM, personally I would not set out for a long road trip. The tires may be suspect for the rougher than normal ride.
