"Out of all of the trucks I have owned this is by far the best. The only things I have found to be a problem have been the stock Ford automatic locking hubs which I replaced with more reliable warn units and it is slow when the exhaust back pressure valve is engaged to warm up the truck first thing in the morning but that also was easily remedied by a TS 6 position chip (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED). A few of my passengers have said the ride was kind of rough but I have no problem with it, after all it is a 3 series chassis it's ment to be loaded down and when it is the ride is not bad at all."
"We just bought our 17 yr old a 1996 F-350 4x4 crew cab its a powerstroke. Looks fabulous, rides great for a big truck. It has 235,000 miles but has plenty of life left. We own International tow trucks and you can't beat their motors. There were a few minor items in need of repair such as: dome light repair, power locks but the key pad is missing so whatever, and a few bulbs need replaced. Sharp looking truck with plenty of room. After the reviews I think we got a GREAT buy. I'm not a Chevy or Ford person, just like a great deal on something dependable."
