Excellent Fuel Economy / Reliablity in a HD Pickup

The 96 Ford F250 HD Super Cab Long Bed is an excellent vehicle for personal use, as well as towing and hauling. THe truck tows up to 12,000 lbs, and has a bed capacity of 2000 lbs. This truck runs and drives great, handles well for a vehicle this size. Fuel economy is 21+ MPG hiway, and 17-18 around town. An excellent value for the dollar, as any parts items are low cost based on number of Ford Powerstroke trucks in service.

Not to cause a problem or anything but the description says 2 wheel drive but after veiwing the photos of this wonderful beast. You will notice that the front axle appears to have a differential on it which means really it would have to be all wheel drive or 4 wheel drive. Hey, Im just saying.

Truck should last you as long you want it to last. Great power from the turbo diesel. These trucks are just built to tough. You couldn't kill these trucks if you tried. Also ''the cargo light leaves off a romantic glow.''

This was my 2nd 3/4 ton truck I've owned and let me tell yeah I wish I never got rid of her it had the biggest block available 7.5L aka 460 backed by an automatic transmission that never gave me the thought of a problem 4x4 was 100% I got her with just over 105 k on her and traded it in with about 135 k and never gave me one single problem. My previous truck was a 2000 chevy k2500 and i nearly tipped it on a gravel road. both pasanger tires came up off the ground but gravity was on my side and landed on all 4 wheels but in the process broke the pitman arm and the lower control arm which tells me that chevys front ends are weak and it also shows on paper too the f250 has a higher g.a.w rating the only thing I liked about the chevy besides the mpg of a 350 vs a 460 was the smoother ride but I know the ford would have not been harmed in a similar incident that the chevy was in. Only reason why I got rid of it was the mpg when gas was at its peak

I bought mine new.It only has 58,000 miles on it. Gets great fuel milage. Drives fairly well. Looks great. I get compliments on it regularly. Even offers to buy. Its shortcomings is...its a 4 wd drive and didn't come with locking diffs. You can get it stuck in your yard. The front autolocking hubs had plastic gears and stripped the first instant I used it as a 4wd. I replaced them with Warn manual hubs. Another thing...it didn't come with either front or rear sway bars which would drastically improve its handling. But I love my old truck.
