"I think this truck is great !! I had a defective head gasket at 67,000 miles and Ford would not repair under warranty.. because it was just over 5 years old.. Since then it has been a great truck, dependable fast and can tow anything. I might sell it because I no longer tow my 5th wheel and do not need a big truck any more.. but then again I might keep it as I only need to fuel it up about once a month and like the dependability.."

"I bought this truck over a V8 because the power gain over the slight loss is fuel economy was well worth the trade off especially with pulling trailers and hauling"

"I have owned this truck for 8 years. I've driven it over 100,000 miles with no real issues it. Its the F-250 LD (same as 7700 package in later years). Especially for being a first model year truck, its been truly flawless. The previous owner used to pull a 30' Tag Along trailer through the Appalachian Mountains with no problems other than the exhaust getting hot and melting his running boards (97' was the one year the exhaust exited before the rear tire). Overall a very solid truck!"

I would definitely buy it again.

"Purchased this truck in 2000, Been a reliable, comfortable and versatile vehicle for the entire time period. I am parting with it mostly because it is 14 years old, time for something new! The real reason, however, is I purchased a larger travel trailer, the gas engine just does not have the basic need of horsepower and torque to tow a 5th wheel with a slide the way my previous trailers were drug around the mountains. Last summer was a struggle on uphill grades, particularly on the 2 lane roads."
