Bought a 97 F-250 diesel extended cab 4 x 4 pick-up with 210,000 miles. Took me 5 months to find one that wasn't a rust bucket. Use it mainly for my work with Habitat for Humanity, pulling trailers and picking up building materials. Wonderful truck getting almost 19 miles per gallon. Love the noise of the diesel and the Basset hounds here me coming 3 blocks away.

wish i had never let this truck go, it was great! my only complaint was the diesel engine was really loud, but other than that it was a dream!

I just this truck a few years ago for fishing/camping, deer and elk hunting. It has performed beyond my expectations. Everything on it says high quality. Very strong, dependable and reliable. I'd definitely get another Ford F250 if something happened to this one. Heaven forbid!

All time favorite truck

I have driven 4X4 trucks and SUVs for close to 40 years and this has to be the best overall performer I have ever owned. Easy to handle with plenty of room and comfort on long drives far exceeds any truck ever driven. The 7.3L has all the power needed for pulling and the ride is excellent (especially for a 4X4). Fuel economy isn't the greatest, (around 15 to 16 mpg) but what do you expect from an 8,000 lb. gorilla?

The ride is the best I've had in a full size truck, it has comfortable seating on long trips. We pull our 27 ft. travel trailer with it and it has all the power you'd want from a truck.I love the body style of this truck, I can't say enough about it. Check it out, you won't be sorry!
