Love It — I bought the truck two and a half years ago. I had to drive all the way up to Rutland to go get it but it has been well worth the long drive. The guy originally wanted $2000 and I talked him down to $1600! It has a big block 460 with fuel injection and it just turned 80,000 original!!! I love the truck!

Bigger The Better. — this is a old black f250 extended cab, with four wheel drive, a stock 351w with a manuel five speed tranz, chain drive transfer case. one ton axles. its a good truck i love it cus i can play and haul at the same time. nothing bad about it except the gas millage, but the play time in it over powers that problem.

Great Looking, simple mechanics, cheap parts

Cons

Underpowered

Reliable, Tough And Good Looking But A Bit Under Powered — I love my 88 F250. The body style is my favorite of all the F-series and it has been pretty tough so far. The 302 V8 is a bit underpowered.
