Log Truck w/ Specs & Mods
FORDF250HDXLT, Dec 26, 2016
      Ninth generation (1992–1996/1997) - The last body style before ford copied the new "dodge styling".Ford had overtaken the combined Chevrolet and GMC pickup sales for the first time in a decade.

      1993 F-Super Duty (F-450) (15,000 GVW) XLT, Made in USA 444CID(7.3L)/Banks waste gated turbo equipped Navistar International InDirectly Injected Diesel Classic (Pre-Powerstroke) , 4 speed OD w/locking torque converter - E40D automatic transmission,Dana 80 full floater rear with 5.13:1 gears. 8'W X 16'L stake body dump. 190k original miles when purchased in winter of 2013.

      The Navistar International IDI was the longest produced diesel engine offered in the Ford F-series trucks (1983-1994.) With the Navistar IDI still holding this record today, which consists of three generations and a total of eleven straight years.The 6.9l and the 7.3l Navistar diesel engine became known as one of the most reliable and sought after diesels.Despite its modest power by modern standards,many enthusiasts still claim it was,and currently still is, Fords best era of diesel equipped trucks for reliability, affordability and a common favorite: simplicity.Since it has no on board pcm nor emissions.with many reports of well over 300,000 miles and counting.

      The F-Super Duty 1987-97 (the original super duty prior to '99 pickups) was Fords introduction of the class 4 medium duty truck. It was a commercial cab & chassis 2WD dually only optioned truck.They came with 460 gas engines all through the production run, with the optional 7.3l idi diesel engine from introduction through '94,then the optional 7.3l di (power stroke) diesel from '94.5 - '97.
      Known at the time as the "One Ton Plus." It sports a HD frame,the hydroboost brake system w/ 4 wheel disc brakes.Though they are 2WD trucks,they are equipped with 4WD transmissions but,rather than a transfer case,they come with a drive line parking brake. A HD dana 80 rear axle that came from ford with gear ratio options intended for two purposes; heavy hauling & towing.They came in various wheelbase lengths with up to a 15,000 LB GVWR.It's widely known as the F-450 equivalent with many auto stores listing parts under either name.
      These trucks are easy to spot with their pickup size cabs,yet unique F-Super Duty fender emblems & 10 lug wheels.

      The Log Truck Show

      This truck still needs light body work,fresh paint and accessories along with more dump bed work.A bit more welding of the dump hinge and some in/out port rams and it should be good.Its bolted down solid w/ hd hardware currently.
