Truck-See SuperDuty 4x4 F-350
By colbyco on
Vehicle1999 Ford F-350 Super Duty XLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB
ReviewHad numerous 4x4 P/U's.6-Chevy's, 2-
Dodge's,and 1 other Ford.This truck is
by far the closest to a perfect
description of a truck. Carry load,2
tons gravel, no problem.Pull load, 32
ft 5th wheel w/21 ft boat in tandem,
no problem.Bought 7.3 liter w/125
K,has chip and aftermarket turbo.265hp
& 575lb torque.Can actually accelerate
up steep hills loaded.13 mpg pulling
load,and 16 mpg unloaded highway @
65mph w/373 gears.4 whl disc have
great stopping power.Lockers in front
and rear great match for diesel.Ext
cab great for short trips w/pass and
extra luggage.Rides like a truck until
loaded.All this from a vehicle w/130 K
miles.Ford tran will outlast Dodge.
Best FeaturesAs stated above,gotta have 7.3 diesel, 4x4 w/lockers, extra cab space,4 whl disc.Chip and turbo package also have aftermarket gauges which helps monitor what's going on.SuperDuty frame is stiff, solid. IFS tons better than solid axle for ride and traction.Tie down points in bed nice.
Worst FeaturesInstalled K&N air filter on front end,but could use bigger dia. exhaust. Diesel basically big air pumping machine that needs big breaths. Factory tires stink,tire up according to your individual needs,whether on road or off.Little quieter cab, not from motor so much as road noise.
