Exclamation Need some help on this 1

I am thinking about pulling the trigger on this Ford F-250. I have always been a Silverado fan but they no longer offer the Extended cab they call it a double cab. I don't want a 4 door truck. that and the rear bumper just looks plain gaudy. so my question Ford still has the the front locking hubs with electronic shift on the fly. can I leave the front hubs locked even in 2 wheel drive???? here are some pics of it I built online. it is a F-250 Lariat 4x4 price is around $55,000

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

Yes you can leave them locked in. I did it a lot on my older 95 truck with lockouts....... I agree on you with the extended cab vs crew cabs. it's getting harder to find just extended. I prefer to have the bed - after all it's a truck right!


Also I have seen articles on guys who do away with the lockouts and convert the hubs.......




I am deathly allergic to shovels!

Brother... with that kind o' cabbage I'd spend $5k on a nice old Hilux, and the leftover $50k to load it up and get out of the crackhood and into some wide open space.

Just driving it off the lot you'll piss $10k down the chitter...

It's a very nice truck, yes... but will it make for a very nice life? And for how long.

?

Like this:



Guy calls it a Tacoma in the listing but it's actually a Hilux pickup, see description. A very nice one... reserve probably closer to $10k I'd guess. Worth it.

1987 Toyota Tacoma | eBay

My '94 Hilux Surf, do like. 4WD/3 liter Turbodiesel. That engine was unfortunately not offered on That Side, too bad because it's really good, much better than the V6 gas engines that went into the 4Runners there.

Todd, I agree with Ronin. A new vehicle is the poorest investment a person can make. It's been stated time and again that the best you can do is to purchase a 1 or 2 year old vehicle with low miles. Yeh, it's nice to have new and pretty and all that but that is some serious cabbage to lay out.
It's your $$ to do with what you want but you did ask. The only "new" car I ever owned is the Malibu sweet Bonny drives. It's a 2006 model and the only reason we bought it was at the time generous motors was offering 6 yrs @ 0% int. She is still driving it and probably will still be driving it 10 years from now.
