1996 Ford F-250 HD XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD LB


Review

I am the original owner. This truck has lived up to its maker's name ... Ford Tough. The brake problems that plagued earlier models is gone. This truck has no rattles. It pulls and pulls. I have the original batteries and they are still good. I have carried 4000 lbs in the back with no problem. I highly recommend this as a work truck for anyone as it has been reliable. The only repairs I have done are a starter relay, brakes, shocks, and glow plug relay. Thats it!


Best Features

Good looking, comfortable interior, always starts. Gets pretty good fuel mileage of 16.5 overall. Stops very well for a big truck.


Worst Features

The autolocking hubs stink! If you are stuck, you must move forward 4 feet to engage. I have had to have them replaced under warranty one time. Oh, yea, the fuel gauges. Ford still can't get this one correct. They stopped working.

Review

Pulls like a truck should. Very little
problems other than maintenance.


Best Features

VENT WINDOWS! When manufacturers took away vent windows I stopped buying new trucks.


Worst Features

Better ride. But what do you expect for a big heavy hauler.

Review

Bought used with 17k, station in san
diego for two years and drove home up
in Washington State just short of
us/candian border(1400 miles oneway) 4
times a year. Best ride and fuel
economy for a 3/4 ton truck (avg 18,
best 23 mpg). Never miss a beat and
and easy on the pocket. Currently
hauling 26 ft TravelTrailer and no
lack of power.


Best Features

Diesel engine, power and towing ability


Worst Features

replace fuel tank fill so you can fill at big truck stop fuel stations
