2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

All around a great truck, pull heavy loads day in and out, dependable, powerful, 6.0 is reliable, I will have it for a very, very long time. Extremely happy with it.


Best Features

Instrument panel, controls on the steering wheel, brake control, longer maintenance intervals, the coil suspension on the 4 wheel axle, tow haul mode on the transmission


Worst Features

I do miss the lower door lights, was a nice feature on the older trucks.

2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr Crew Cab Lariat 4WD SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Great fuel mileage at 55mph, about 22, lower as speed increases. People notice the truck. Fun to drive and safe in almost all conditions although it's hard to weigh down the bed in snow because of the large payload capacity. Tows almost anything; I have to look to see if my boat is still attached. Had Dodges and liked them but really like this Ford.


Best Features

The comfort in this truck is beyond belief. Easily carrys 6 passengers and a full load in the bed without strain. It is fun to drive also. Actually handles very nicely. Wife hates it going through the bank drive-up.


Worst Features

The only improvements are the options I did not select.

2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

The truck in general is a good truck. But at 30,000 miles I had the turbo replaced. Now with 50,000 miles my gauge cluster, shocks, and CD player are being replaced. The front suspension is being rebuilt by the dealer due to a terrible shimmy at all speeds (TSB). The brake pedal can be pushed all the way to floor, which I'm told is normal for this truck. Only 6 months old and 50,000 miles, I wouldn't recommend this truck to anyone, BUY A DODGE. I was a long time Ford fan, not anymore. Luckily I'll be getting a new one at 200,000 miles


Best Features

Transmission.


Worst Features

Front suspension not holding up, too many problems for a new truck.

2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD LB DRW (5.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

While not listed as an option above, I own the 6.0 power stroke diesel. This is the best performing, handling and visually appealing truck I have ever owned. Power is unreal, fuel consumption is very good for an 8,000 lb truck. I travel extensively in my job and look forward to putting between 400 and 500 thousand miles on this truck.


Best Features

Cab is very quiet and very roomy. I have 4 children and can fit them ALL comfortably in this truck. Smooth ride for a 1 ton truck.


Worst Features

Turbo is slow to spool up and handling could be improved. I have had some work done on the front suspension. Nothing major just noisy springs.

Review

A drug addict crossed the yellow line and hit me head on. Long story short, the Chevy 1/2 ton was sent to the junkyard and its driver went to the hospital. My truck has about $5000 worth of damage, and I barely felt a thing.


Best Features

Headroom and roominess. Tow command system. Seats.
