A Good Long-term Investment. — A reliable truck. Timeless styling. Comfortable, yet easy to drive. A good first-vehicle for new drivers.

I Was Disappointed That It Only Lasted A Short Time — Another well used truck before I bought it. I hauled horses in a steel box in the bed. I only got about a years used out of this truck, it wouldnt stay running and i replaced a ton of sensors on it.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: it was just an ok truck

Cons: It was a headache trying to keep it running

1986 Ford F-150 XLT Standard Cab 4WD LB Review
ClassicCar33 says:
I have driven this vehicle. Turning radius is not as good as the bed is longer so you have to be aware of this if off roading in 4x4. SAme cab space as the short bed. Same fuel economy if it has the 302 engine. LB is heavier than the SB so I feel the power is a little sluggish. LB is good fro hauling items. I dont haul alot so this is not a consideration for myself.

1986 Ford F-150 XLT Standard Cab 4WD SB Review
ClassicCar33 says:
I own a Ford short bed 4x4, excellent turning radius, reliable start and stop every time. Always passes SMOG. Great power for towing all of your toys. Good acceleration with the lower gearing in the 4x4. First gear is granny so in 2WD it can be go in second gear from a start. I overall prefer the short bed versus the LB.
