Work Horse — It is a very good running truck that has low mileage for the engine. 2 owner vehicle that is very clean, as well as a good dash with No cracks in it. Also has almost new tires on the truck.

Good Work Truck — This vehicle is a sturdy, dependable work truck. It is nice to get into each day and feel confident it will start and get me through my work day. I like the looks of Ford trucks, and would shop for a similar model with upgrades in the future.

Pros

The basic truck has lots of power and the 7.3L is one awesome engine.  With the lift kit, large 37" tires, and enhansed tuning, the look and sound adds to the fun ride--lots of testosterone!  All the guys (and galls for that matter) want one.

Cons

Fuel economy, but hey--you're asking for poor fuel economy with 37" tires!  Also, the lift kit makes it hard to easily access the back end without a ladder, or stepping on on the tire--probably a younger guys' truck.

Fun, But Expensive To Drive. — I basically said it above. Speaking purely of the F250 supercab, there are times when I wish I had a quad-cab, but most of the time the extended cab is sufficient. If I had to do it over again, I'd pick the extended cab again simply to reduce turning radius and improve fuel economy. It's comfortable, although the leather material seems a bit thin and wears too easily. I hear Ford finally got their new diesel engines right, but only after many years of stuggling--post 2003 7.3L era. I like the 7.3L, but the fuel economy suffers. The new diesel engine gets better fuel economy, but who can afford a 2013 diesel. I'll definitely check them out in about 4-6 years once they reach my used-car price range!

Great Truck For Towing, Long Trips And Hauling — This truck has been with me since new in 2003, last of the 7.3 L diesels. It rides really good for a big as it is. With the banks power and oversized tires, I still get 21 MPG and never less than 14 MPG while towing my 11K pound trailer.

Its A Diesel And A Truck. — Didnt I just answer this? If you haul things, drag things, or play in the mud this is a good vehicle. 6.0L Diesel gets decent fuel mileage. I get between 16 to 19 per gallon with a 30 gallon tank.

My Truck — I got a steal on this truck. It had over 205,000 on it when I bought it but it is the 6.0 Turbo Diesel and all the miles were highway, so that means I got a good 400,000 left on it. I have pulled everything from a small utility trailer to a 28' Travel Trailer, all with ease. And the milage is AWESOME!!! Pulling a trailer up to Hancock I got over 20MPG!!!

This Truck Rocks! — This truck is absolutely awesome to dive. It has power, acceleration, handling and everyone says it's badass! Huge cab area, captians cairs in the fron so only seating for 5, but they all have more then enough room!This truck is sturdy, unless I'm hit by a dumptruck I'm probably walking away from any wreck I may get in(knock on wood).

Parodox — Ok, the mileage sucks, 11.5 with the V10 and 430 rearend, the brakes are horrid (replace every 20K), its lumbering and has a 1/2 mile parking radius, and there are other concerns, but it is my parodox. I love this truck. It goes anywhere, tows everything, holds 6 passengers with space to spare, pretty quiet for a truck, you sit up high and can see the road (and you need to because of a dismissal stopping distance). Overall quality is good, there are problem areas: on my third set of brakes at 60k truly highway miles (at 11.5 mpg you better only drive on interstates--computing is 9 mpg or less), and differential with limited slip needed major repair (disappointing for a heavy duty truck that hauls kids and soccer gear with no commuter stop and go driving), Despite the negatives I still like this truck better than my significantly more reliable Chev Tahoe, (wife loves the Tahoe). 100% of the use is recreational, so mpg is not a big issue, but it would be if I drove this vehicle as a daily driver or more.
