The 03 is a good yr to buy the 250 or 350 cause they use both the 7.3 & the 6.0 that yr. Myself I would recommend the 7.3 unless you have the 6.0 bulletproofed before you hit 150k otherwise your hpop will go bad. Then your screwed.

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.

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

Pros: Durable

Cons: Heavy

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.

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

Pros: Awesome reliability, rides great, tows great, looks great! Only in the shop for oil changes and routine maintenance.

Cons: None

Pulling Machine — I have owned this truck for four years, my father had it before I bought it. It was used on our farm to haul cattle, hay and equipment. I use it for pulling my racecar and equipment. I absolutely love this truck. Its my pride and joy.

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

Pros: Lots of power to pull whatever I want

Cons: Mileage could be better

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!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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.

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

Pros: The ultimate family car,  carries everything, hauls the toys, for a truck, quiet, with ok ride

Cons: mileage, brakes, maintenance,
