    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: big and fun

    Cons: fuel

    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!

    Pros: Big, lots of power

    Cons: gas mieage

    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.

    Pros: Great Looking, simple mechanics, cheap parts

    Cons: Underpowered
