    2003 Ford F-350 - Lariat 4x4 SD Super Cab Long Box Dual Rear Wheel

    Pros: The 6.0 Powerstroke Turbo Diesle

    Cons: The glove box room was a little small.

    Advice: Trucks don't get tougher than this. If u need a heavy duty truck, this is what u want

    I have the 6.0 diesle, which provides plenty of power and a good ride. I'm an Ironworker and this is a great truck to have for heavy duty jobs. I put a superchip in it and now this truck is fast as hell, this truck takes off faster than my 1994 5.0 Mustang GT.

    2004 Ford F-350 - XLT 4x2 SD Crew Cab Long Box DRW

    Pros: None

    Cons: Everything

    Advice: Don't buy this truck or make sure you are dealing with an honest dealership...

    Bought this truck Dec. 15, 2004. Truck has been back to the dealer 5 times for numerous problems. The vehicle is calibrated to tow 13,000 pds. My truck shakes violently when towing an 8,400 pd horse trailer. Gas mileage is poor. Averaging 7 miles a gallon. Sunroof leaks so bad we had to stuff towels under it. Ford Field Service Tech. told us to get a lawyer. Seems that Ford is not going to stand behind their product. We have not even made the first payment yet...

    2005 Ford F-350 - Lariat 4x4 SD Crew Cab Long Box DRW

    Pros: the power of the 6.0L and the ride comfort

    Cons: the price of diesel fuel in California ($2.62/gal)

    Advice: Get one soon!

    In less than 2 months I have driven over 9000 miles: South Lyon, Mich. to Stockbridge, Mass. picked up a U-haul trailer, loaded it with furniture and drove it to Laguna Beach, Calif. by way of Kansas City, Mo. and Denver, Colorado. The 6.0L diesel performed flawlessly at in all conditions and at all speeds(ask the Kansas State trooper outside of Pratt, Kansas), loaded or unloaded and especially over the pass thru the rockies west of Denver.

    2003 Ford F-350 - Lariat 4x4 SD Crew Cab Short Box Dual Rear Wheel

    Pros: Combination of 6.0 litre diesel and 5 speed automatic

    Cons: Nothing at this point

    Advice: A great pulling truck that is well worth the look

    We presently have 44,000 km on vehicle; warranty work has included replacing rear main seal on engine and intercooler feed from the turbo charger (this tubing was upgraded by Ford). Vehicle has 1 recall on the grounding connection from the battery to the engine and 1 upgrade to the engines computer. Warranty work has been a pleasant experience with prompt attention and excellent workmanship at our local dealer in High River, Alberta. Trucks powertrain continues to impress us as we use the truck to pull a 38 foot 5th wheel. The 6 litre diesel is strong from the word go. Fuel mileage pulling the trailer is approximately 11 mpg while empty mileage is around 18 mpg. The 5 speed automatic with tow/haul mode is impressive saving brakes on downhill grades and providing smooth, effortless shifts under all pulling conditions. Truck is equipped with a trailer towing package; including oversize stabilizers and rear axle air suspension. Stability is excellent and is considered better than with our previous dually truck. Fit and finish of the truck is very good. Cabin access is great and the Lariat package provides 'carlike' comfort. Rear seat room legroom is excellent. We look forward to years of enjoyable use. This one has my previous Dodge dually beat so far; 'time will tell'.

    2002 Ford F-350 - XLT 4x2 SD Super Cab Long Box Dual Rear Wheel

    Pros: The power

    Cons: The rear seat cupholder

    Advice: It's a great truck, just focus on getting a good deal!

    We've had a Ford f-150 and a Dodge 3500 with Cummins diesel, but neither compare to our F350 crew cab dually with the V10. Excellent in every respect, and we work it hard! It's a kid hauler, a tow vehicle, and hauls around a 4000 pound trailer.

    2003 Ford F-350 - XL 4x4 SD Regular Cab

    Pros: everything but the power train see test drive

    Cons: having serious engine problems @ 13,400 miles

    Advice: buy a Dodge

    13,400 miles, 6 months, purchased 7/03 new, Feb. 2004 idle begins to get rough, then begins to handle poorly, dealer preforms 'tech search', drains HFCM, re-loads PCM, does 15,000 mile warranty service, problems continue, begin to smell extreme fuel fumes in cab, locate source, mech failed to replace oil filler cap, fume coming from crank case, return to dealer, #7 injector failed, fuel in is now in oil, deal wlllingly going to replace oil, and injector, cannot commit to any engine damage, however the 6.0 V8 has had note injector leaking issues, engine seizing, and Ford is aware. So if you begin to loose idle, and the engine becomes rough at stops, something like a mini-harley experience, and the truck begi9ns to run as if you are onrumble strips you have a possible injecor problem: I am referring to a: 2003-6.0 V8 Diesel-F350 Crew SD duellie:GOOD LUCK not sure what to do with an 8000lb+ boat anchor
