2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4WD Review

With a 6000 pound cargo maximum and 24,000 pound towing capacity, the 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4WD is the truck to beat for steady, dependable use on the job site. The top dog Ford Super Duty F-450 XL, XLT, and Lariat with its 6.4L 350hp V8, brings all the boys to the yard. Boasting a 6-passenger capacity, the Super Duty will really do well to haul 4 or five, wearing tool belts and other gear.

The interior of the Super Duty is designed to weather well under rough use with durable cloth seating upholstery and handles and controls sized so that gloved hands can grab them. Grappling with bad terrain makes the 6-speed manual transmission a godsend, while the power takeoff from the transmission helps you do the job no matter how remote the job site is. You will also appreciate the dual battery setup and oversize alternator for cold starts.

You need to know what's going on under the hood of your Super Duty and the instrumentation on board has you covered with tachometer, trip computer, and a bevy of warning lights. With a curb weight of 8687lb, the Super Duty takes advantage of standard 4-wheel anti-lock brakes and airbags for driver and front passenger. Although child labor laws prohibit toddlers from working in construction, the Super Duty comes with LATCH for those who bring kids to work to watch.

On the outside, the 2008 Ford Super Duty can get itself all gussied up with chrome bumpers, fog lights, and truck bed lighting. Fender moldings for the twin rear wheels are matched to the body's color. Climb out of the mud using optional tubular cab steps and protect that finish with functional and stylish mud guards. The 2008 Ford Super Duty FWD will prove itself to be a step above the rest this year, with a new Biodiesel engine and unsurpassed performance.
