    I am curious what opinion came in those basic truck?

    My 1993 F350 is cab chassis so po put box.
    It have 5.8L with C6
    NO AC
    basic radio and 2 speaker which not fancy
    No power window
    No rear window sliding
    It suppose to have dually but PO remove 6 tires when sold to my friend so he put his 4 tires on it. I say it look ok but it save mpg much.

    But it came with heavy duty leaf spring I think no more than 6 since my f150 have 4 that why it so weak plus bounce.

    I am curious what your truck came with it. Or you add because XL is boring so you put new radio.

    My plan is get 5.8L in that and put flatbed or bed on it then drive see how it work and put locker in rear axle see if it could do plow snow.

    And do you have trouble with rust on this f350? How to stop it? I know paint with por15 but how to fix those rust scale? Grind to clean then put patch of steel and rivet then paint with por15?

    The XL is a plain jane truck with very few options. You could order one with A/C and more features but most were ordered by the dealer to be a work truck and cheap. Unless you are doing bigger parking lots the 2 wheel drive will not work very well.

    Please post what it came on your f250 or F350 and what you install like new radio or ac or window or stuff you replace with new one. Like mod or performance.

    yes that 87-97


    Is speaker on Ford truck junk? Not good one like cheap one? If it is ok I would get expense speaker from my 79 F150 that PO put which look to be new but remove radio when we got it.

    well i had the sliding window put in when the standard one shattered- i was mowing and a rock hit it- the cd player wasn't hard went to best buy and picked one out then just had to get an adapter for the truck. but my speakers are stock an they're pretty good
