    Does Everything It Was Designed To — Top of the line work truck from the 90s. 7.3 was the best deisel ever built bullet proof and pulls like a train. Simple truck that's easy to drive with good visibility. Got a ton of character and simple styling make it a timeless truck that want ever go out of style.

    Pros: Easy to drive around town,great AC,will haul or pull anything

    Cons: Have to stop to roll down passenger window

    Great Truck — I only paid $700 for this truck. With $250 in repairs, it has run like a champ. It's perfect for towing my 32' camp trailer. Back seats are small and typical for an extended cab truck. Ride is rough since it's a 1 ton, but I don't mind that. I hauled some heavy loads and the truck has performed perfectly.

    Pros: This truck has a lot of power and is perfect for towing.

    Cons: Fuel economy.

    Lets Get To Work — A good lookin truck that is easy and fun to drive. Wheel base is great for parking and maneuvering. Weight is well dispersed making this vehicle easy to handle on the road for cornering and adverse conditions. Brakes on a dime. Stereo system is surround sound.

    Pros: Handles well with lots of giddy up go

    Cons: not great for fuel economy

    Useful But Crude. — The truck is a workhorse. I've got the XL so its not well optioned but does what its supposed to do. It is a Powerstroke so its got plenty of power and does reasonably on fuel. With the ground clearance it has, it goes great in the snow. The bad? The gearshift is slow and clunky (it IS a truck), turbo is slow to spool, turning radius is about a quarter mile or so, and it rides like crap.

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

    Pros: If you need to haul/pull something, ifs where its at.

    Cons: Daily driving this thing would suck!

    Would Love To Have It In 4wd Version — Had the 351 with 4.10 gears and limited slip, that made this truck 100 times better. Being a HD 250 it hauled amazingly. With the camper on, it barely sagged a couple of inches, whereas any half ton we've used nearly bottoms out. Somewhat cheap build quality, but solid truck. Hated the regular cab and 2wd, and being a work truck, there wasnt one single option.

    Pros: fairly quick, actually rides like a truck should

    Cons: no features at all, no room in reg cab, 2wd sucks

    This Truck Will Run Anything Over — Not a spot of rust on this beauty, she runs amazing and gets me out of anything and everything, plus has the speed and power to keep up with alot of the ricers in my area, 351 small block with hooker headers, k&n air filter upgrade, and much more

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: It's huge

    Cons: Nothing can't complain at all

    Big Truck — One time our former church secretary let me drive this to Target to pick up some office furniture. It could barely fit in our garage, and it definitely felt huge. I rode in the extended cab on the way back, and it almost felt like riding an airliner.

    Pros: Feels like a truck

    Cons: Feels like a bus

    One Hard Working Truck! — With a 460 big block V8 Ford engine and 410 rear-end stock only complimented with 4wd.

    Pros: The kick A exhaust

    Cons: The gas milage (10 mpg)
