1997 Ford F-250 3dr Extended Cab SB


This truck does everything well. What's amazing today, 13 years later, is its reliability and it drives new. "Built Ford Tough" is true. This isnt a commercial, just 13 years of ownership. I bet the truck has 13 more years left. Has 120K now and should do 250k. After 1200 miles, always used Mobil1. Replaced shocks and tires normal interval. Oxygen sensor replaced once and just changed the plugs at 120K and engine sounds new and runs out perfect.

Best Features

Favorites: 3/4 ton hauling and towing. Lots of power and solid build. Locking tailgate. Tailgate is built like Fort Knox. Looks good, tows and hauls great and drives like a big ole truck (drives new still).

Worst Features

Purchased in 1996 - no keyless entry available then.
