    I have a '99 F-350 XLT Supercab, long bed, dually. It has the PSD with the 6-speed. As of today, the truck has 102k miles on it. To date, the only mod is a Western Diesel Turbo brake. But, now that the truck is completely out of warranty, I would like to do some other things to it, mainly a ram air, chip and straight turbo-back exhaust. I purchased the truck to haul a slide-in camper, but as things usually go, not long after I got the camper and truck, the wife decided the slide-in was too small. So now I have a 31' travel trailer. With the trailer and all of our gear, the rig grosses about 17k pounds. I usually get around 18.5 mpg empty and 11.25 mpg loaded. I'm knocking on wood right now, but so far the only problems I have had are a broken clock spring in the steering column and the infamous turbo bolts that won't stay put.

    I love my PSD and intend on keeping it at least to 300k miles.

    it is a F250 XLT SC 4x4 V10 Wht/Slv.
    I live in the burbs of Atlanta.

    Still love the V10, wish it was bigger. Installed K&N filter, have the JBA headers in my shop from my 99 I traded in.

    Pull 27' TT, weighs 7500lbs, no problems, not the mileage a diesel gets but I'm a gas man.

    Truck is a 2001 F350XLT, CC, PSD, auto, 8' bed. Color is black with a silver bottom. I use it as my every day driver and also to pull a 30' travel trailer for vacations, etc. Plan soon to move up to a 5th wheel. Am planing on installing a Western Chip and going to the 285 tire size.

    Love my Ford!

    Just bought a new 2001 SuperCrew XLT, 4x2, Tow Package and Anti-Slip Diff. With the 2003's almost out, the 2001's were finally marked down to where I could afford it!

    Two tone green/beige (Nicknamed the green monster by my loving wife).

    So far I love its size and ride.

  • Does anyone else own one? I bought it last September it has the 4.2 and I love it. I saw one posting that said if you were planning on buying a F150 with the 4.2 V6 to run the other way. I have 7K on it and so far its been awesome. Any comments or owners??
  • I own a 1996 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer, purchased brand new. Truck has been wonderful and has been there for me thru everything. Now I own a brand new second truck, an F-350 Lariat Crew Cab Long Bed 7.3L V8 Diesel 2003 Model, Single Rear Wheel 4x4 FX4 package.

    Nothing beats a Ford truck.
  • Now that you're a Powerstroker, you'll need to go to www.ford-diesel.com

    Welcome to the club.
  • I've been raised on ford trucks. Dad had a 1976 supercab F150 that died with over 400,000 miles on the original engine, and he worked that truck til it needed 2x4s to hold the engine up. now owns a 1986 F250 regular cab w/351W and C6 trans. Been rolled twice (physically that is) and is still going. I myself owned a 1990 F250 supercab XLT Lariot that I traded in with 198,000 miles with many needed repairs for my current 1999 Ranger 3.0L extended cab auto 4x4. Needless to say that the ranger has been hell on me. Check out script #582 under ranger problems to see what I'm talking about. If you would like to leave input, please do.

    Hi, I am Ray.

    I have a 1993 Ford F-250 Super Cab, long bed, 4-wheel drive, with a 460 ci. engine and a 168,000 miles. I have had the truck for 2 and a half years. I have had to do some repairs, mainly to the drive train, but the truck is in very good shape, drive great down the road, and runs like a champ, only minor work done to the engine. The gas mileage is bad, but it's very dependable, and pulls 10,000lbs easily. I have had many Ford and Chevy trucks, but I prefer Ford trucks, because they are built so well. The only two negitive things I have to say is, poor mileage, and real bad turning radius, as it has a 8 foot bed. Other than that, its a great truck.

    I live in Lake In The Hills, IL.
    age: 43
    have owned 140 new and used cars and trucks since I have been driving.
    I know quite a bit about every aspect of vehicles.
    I am also a muscle car enthusiast.

    hey I just bought a 94 ranger. Its got the 2.3L engine and five speed tranny. just wondering, do you know any good ways of boosting power? the engine is a bit weak and I just put 31" tires and a lift and now need some more power to get it moving better. Gear change would work but looking for more power and help?

    I have the same cd changer too but with xplod head unit, big speakers and amp

    I have a Ford 350 with 26,125. and the oil pumped failed taking the engine with it. Of course it was 6 months out of warranty. I've been working with Middlekauf Ford in Plano who was not very helpful and ultimatley passed me off to the Area Manager for Ford. Oscar, the Area Manager called me to get more info about what happened to my truck. I spent about 5 minutes with him on the phone. He told me they couldn't help me, and then hung up on me when I asked to speak to his supervisor. Has anyone else had this type of treatment with Ford Corporate, if so, how did you handle it.

    One other note. NO ONE would give me the number for a regional office to Ford. But I have it now. Once again, NO ONE will take the time to call me back.

  • I bought a 1996 Eddi Bauer Bronco. I have a problem. After I stop when I go to take off I get a clunk sometimes more than one. It almost feels like the back end drops. I checked my u bolts, replaced the uni joints,checked sway bar brackets, pleeease help. I am lost. I am pretty handy but this has stumped me. Thanks for any help you can give me.
  • my 93 Ranger needs a new starter. however, i can't see how to get to the starter wire to remove it without first removing the upper and lower mounting bolts and letting the motor then hang down far enough to disconnect the wire. is this safe to do if i first disconnect the negative wire from the battery? or is something else required? any suggestions appreciated.
  • I also have a 1996 Eddie Bauer Bronco with what sounds like the exact same problem. Did you solve the issue? Any advice would be helpful right now.
  • Hello I have a 93 F-350 diesel crew-cab recently I have had a problem with the brakes, sometimes they are power brakes and other times act like a non-power-assisted system would work. I always have brakes it just takes more pedal pressure sometimes. Can anyone help with what I should look at first?
