Pros: "Great mileage for this truck, best engine Ford!"

Cons: "Tailgate damage and some rust."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I bought the truck to tow a 5th wheel camper and it was remarkable doing that. It has an in bed 5th wheel connector and got better mileage than I expected. With the camper, it got 11-12 mpg and without the camper 16-18 mpg. It has been serviced regularly, brakes including electric brake connector are good, and looks good as red with chrome running boards. It does have some rust and the tailgate is damaged but works. I have retired and no longer need the vehicle. You will enjoy this great working truck."

Pros: "260000 miles still running like new, price, towing"

Cons: "gas milage, not enough cup holders."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"our 1996 ford f350 dually 7.3 liter has been with us since 2001 and has been a great tow hauler and family truck. its towed three of our boats (21ft 26ft and 32ft) and our travel trailer (44ft) from panama city to key largo to Miami to ft laud, its never given us a days problem and was a great investment despite the gas milage of this pig. our dually is incredible and I'd recommend this to a friend over the 2000-2007 models because of the look and old turbo"

Pros: "heavy suspendtion dual wheels turbo diesel"

Cons: "tailgate latch jams a/c vents adjust hard"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"This 7.3 turbo diesel is nearly indistructable. At 260,000 thousand miles it performs as well as the day it was born. I've pulled goosenecks tagalong and fifth wheel trailors sometimes heavy loads through hills without strain. The transmission holds its own and the rear differential is tuff. Crew cab lets for plenty of space in longhauls. With lumbar ajustable seats, crews control and dual fuel tanks, this truck has a good mileage range. But please remember, take a rest break, drive safely home."

One of the best vehicles I have owned.

Cons: "Bad fuel economy."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I bought it used from a used car dealership in the town I live in for a fair price. It was great. Then it snowed and just got better. I absolutely love it. The whole family and our dogs went out to play in the snow. We never got stuck or had any issues with it. Also towed a couple different types of trailer really well. Couldn't be happier."
