Short bed 7.3 crew cab
By Trailboss on


1996 Ford F-250 HD XLT 4dr Crew Cab LB


Wife's truck to haul travel and horse
trailers, and run around to dog shows
from FL to WI. She didn't know she
would love it so much. No engine
mechanical problems after 210,000 mi.
One bad door light switch and one elec.
window only real problems to date.
Still reliable for her to take long
trips. May replace at 300K w/4x4
diesel long bed crew cab.

Best Features

Fuel mileage ~18-20. Can let diesel idle for hours in the hot South to keep AC on our dogs left in the cab. Tows heavy trailers well, lots of power. We took the rear seat out to carry dog crates and gear in AC - only takes 1/2 hr to reinstall.

Worst Features

Hub caps expensive and easily lost. Make engine heater plug easier to reach. Step on front bumper to access engine. Place to add coolant additive.
