Great Truck. — i love the 460 big block 7.5 with the good strong E40D tranny 355 rear end and the dual 3 inch exhaust.this is a very powerful dependable truck that will last a long long time the only bad thing is that is sucks gas pretty badly.

Pros

Great towing rig

Cons

Crew cab + short bed = lame

35

Love The Power & Versatility... — Great truck....it's got the 7.3L Powerstroke, and the best year possible (1997). Easy to work on, easy to turn up and get more power. Great for towing but also a good rig for around town...downside is combination of the crew cab (4 full doors) and a short bed. Backseat is roomy enough for 3, but bed isn't big enough to hold what you need. Still, love the truck.

Fuel economy

Great Truck. — Only thing I disliked was fuel economy. Got 8.5-9 MPG at all times. Was a great truck. Had ALOT of power, towed great, handled great sat up high with OUT a lift kit. Would go through any mud or snow with 4X4

Not A Car... Shes A Pickup — Has the 7.3 powerstroke that is bullet proof and can take lots of modifications. The acceleration is amazing when the turbo kicks in. MPGs are ok but we are talkin power and not economy. She makes rice rockets look like scum.

needed trans when i bought it, and needed tires

My Ford Diesel — the truck was amazing when it came to power, ESPECIALLY with the 5spd manual transmission! it did real well in the snow and was overall a real good truck to own! id like to have one just like it in the future, but hopefully a crew cab!
