1992 Ford F250 XLT 7.5 from North America
Maintenance pays dividends! Great Truck Ford Loyal
Upper radiator hose failed while towing my 5th-wheel from Sacramento, CA to Ashland, OR.
I bought this truck on a whim idea that I wanted to trade my cozy suburban life in the beautiful Central Valley, California for something more rugged and rural such as the gorgeous Southern Oregon atmosphere. So, as being a adventurous 30 & 36 year olds we traded that life for an exemplary example of a 1992 Ford F-250 4x4 XLT extended cab 7.5/460 gas V8 & automatic and a 10,000 lb 5th wheel.
The truck is far from perfect, as I do love modern conveniences such as Bluetooth, navigation, and a stereo that supports well stereo... it's original and all it's 40 amps of glory. But, I appreciate that all is original and it all works!
I recently brought it to Butler Ford in Ashland, Oregon who upon an inspection said that it was "one of the nicer older Fords brought in." And that it checked out as in good condition and ready to haul.
This was great because I knew little about what correct truck to purchase to tow a 10,000 lb 5th wheel.
Any ways, it's a beast and didn't really fail. The seal broke at the thermostat and I replaced that and the hose plus the therm.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
