Summary:

Nice smooth well made

Faults:

New Fan Clutch at 104k.

New Brakes and tires 105k.

Cab corner started to rust 125k.

Dual Gas Tanks had the recall backwash problem, but my VIN # didn't make the recall. I never fixed it, and tracked the fuel use by noting trip mileage.

General Comments:

An F250 with the 351 W and C6 4X4 Dana 60s and 3.56 is an excellent runner. You could literally balance a 5 level tier of champagne glasses on the hood when it idled.

The big neg was the mileage. 10MPG all day highway or city or towing made no difference.

Overdrive with a better gear ratio would be nice.

Summary:

Very good heavy duty work truck

Faults:

Rusty gas tanks, rusty frame, rusty brake lines. Most things under the truck are rusted, some severely.

Two spark plugs broke off inside the right hand cylinder head.

General Comments:

Very reliable truck, almost no repairs needed except as noted above.

This truck is not a daily driver, but is used for heavy work such as hauling materials, plowing snow, etc.

For a four wheel drive vehicle, it is very good on tires.

Too bad it has so much rust underneath (body panels are still in good shape)
