My new 95' PSD Regular Cab 4x4

New PSD owner here. Just figured I would post my new truck here. I work a Ford dealership and this puppy came in on trade the other day. One owner, 140,000 miles. Came with the original window sticker and the previous owner even kept track of all the oil changes in his factory maintenance schedule. Had a A.R.E. bed topper on it, took that off and got a LineX liner put on it as well as an Advantage Hard Hat Premier Tonneau Cover. Inside still looks brand new. Still waiting on replacement hub caps for the front wheels.

I'm new here too but have learned a lot so far so! Great find!!!

Denton, TX

I envy those that know exactly which modification to make and in the most logical of sequences. But not enough to trade for my meanderings and misfires.

1996 F250 crew cab/short bed, 4x4, auto PSD, 6637 air filter, interior grab handles, stainless window vents, remote door locks work with engine running mod.

Yea I've been debating taking those off. Any suggestions from anyone on what to replace those with. I haven't had a lot of luck finding nerf bars or anything like that online. As for the previous owner, he was an older farmer. Drove across Ohio to buy an F150 we had in stock. I'll have to post some more pictures tomorrow of the inside and such.

Do you need steps? Mines leveled on 35s and it is a hop to get into, but I don't need steps.

Its all up to you, I personally don't like steps.

I don't really need steps, it's more of a convenience. I agree though that truck will look a lot better without the "old man" steps. I'm also going to get some new tires come next month. Still has the OEM size tires, was thinking about going up to a 265/75 16 Goodyear Wranger SilentArmor. I was told I could go up to a 285 but they may rub a little. What you guys think?

pretty truck my first powerstroke was a 97 ext. cab same color. I was looking for that same color when i purchased this one now.

defintely would loose those running boards, dont know if you can see mine in my avatar pic. but mine had steps on it when purchased.

i would loose the hubcaps, but thats just my opinion..

bet you got a steal on that since dealers dont give any trade in $ on older trucks like that.. but congrats.

well welcome to the forum

Depends on what they rub on, but I would definitely go with the 285s. I had 315/75r16s on my sd (see sig) and they rubbed on the spring at full lock. If its something simple they rub on like that, then I say get the 285s (33s) and and deal with the slight rubbing. If they rub on body panels...maybe not.

Youll probably end up leveling it someday anyway, so the 33s will look nice under there

Yea I am not a huge fan of the hubcaps either. I'd like to get some American Racing chrome wheels, I think they would look great with the chrome bumpers. I do have a set of hubcaps coming since I am missing the front caps. Do I need to get any special wheel since I have manual locking front hubs. The previous owner ordered it and deleted the auto locking hubs.

What do you think a fair asking price for the vehicle is? I'm not looking to sell just trying to see how well I did purchasing it. I know what these retail for and how hard they are to find. Was just kind of curious what they go for non retail now a days.
