"I realize that the milage is low and it has yet to prove herself, but this pickup is a classic and it works well for me. Down to the rubber floors that I can hose out. The 7.3 Engine has proven itself as arguably one of Fords best. Nothing fancy here in the XLT. I expect to get another couple of hundred thousand miles out of her."
Pros: "Great truck has alway done what is asked to do"
Cons: "too long for most parking spaces nowadays"

"The only flaws on the truck are the seating positions. The rear passengers seats are way too upright, not meant to ride in for long duration's. The driver"s seat is about 1-1/2 off center of the steering wheel. Not sure why, because there is plenty of room to the left of the seat. I've owned 6 trucks over the years. If Ford had put Dodge seats in this F350, they would have a truck nobody would or could complain about. The handling is superior to Dodge and Chevy (I've owned both). The payload capacity is by far better than Dodge, Chevy, Nissan and Toyota. The Power Stroke International engine doesn't quite measure up to the Cummin's engine, but it does a capable job nevertheless, averaging 17mpg (My Cummins averaged 19+mpg). Towing is the strongest point about this truck. Why they didn't put a brake controller in these trucks from the get go is beyond me. This is what they are meant for. Holding value is another strong point. It's incredible what a 16 year old truck can sell for, if it has the diesel engine. Not having factory running boards on every truck is another mistake Ford made. The stock mirrors stick out a few too many inches, making them seem like they should be pushed back in every time I walk by the truck. With all the space available under the back seat, why didn't Ford do like Dodge did? Put a cargo area under it, for things like raincoats, jumper cables, flares, ect?"
