I had a 1997 F250 LD lariat 4wd ext cab short bed. I loved that truck till I got in a accident and it bent the frame. I looked around for a while looking for one but the one I found the people d#cked me around till I gave up and bought something else. I still see them around here but I have yet to see one like mine.

So yes, basically a HD-f150, but not quite a 250 superduty...
Well I mean I know all about them. It took 3 months to track down a 7 lug after market wheel for my friends truck. But I mean there are people out there that ask to buy his truck just cuz there hard to find. But I don't get it you could buy a superduty and it would be basically the same thing.

Guess it comes down to the f150 look that people liked and they have a better GVWR.

One reason businesses like them is you can register them as a half ton.
