Six Secret Celebrity Facts about the Ford F-250 Pickup

  • Cory Proctor lives a good life because this guard for the Miami Dolphins also drives a maroon Ford F250 Super Duty pickup that he customized by lifting it up and adding bigger tires on. He describes his truck as a perfect ten and a "freakin' awesome" ride because he can still tow some stuff around town even if it doesn't have "too much power". The full crew-cab also gets his praises for having plenty of room that big guys like him and his friend can fit into.

  • Meanwhile, motorcycles aren't the only thing that bike racer Brian Deegan rides. His daily driver is actually a 2010 Ford F-250 pickup that he uses to haul his bikes around the motocross track. Despite wishing for a slightly fancier interior, he's quite happy with his baby. In fact, he had it painted in flat gunmetal gray to match his aftermarket off-road wheels.

  • Athletes aren't the only ones who like modifying their rides. Singer-songwriter Edwin McCain may be best known for his hit single "I'll Be," but he also likes to customize his Ford F-250 with minimum supervision from his mechanic friend. Originally intending to get it as a farm truck, McCain bought his pickup from a gas station in Boone, North Carolina where it was formerly a snowplow and forestry truck. He likes its quirks so much that he rates this workhorse as a ten out of ten.

  • Before he snagged the role of manly-man Ron Swanson on the sitcom Parks and Recreation, Nick Offerman drove a Ford F-250 pickup. This environmentalist was justified in purchasing a big truck because he used it to haul salvaged trees from Northern California back down to Los Angeles, where he turned the wood into tables and canoes inside his custom wood shop.

  • Perhaps Offerman would be delighted to know that converting the F-250 into an environmentally-friendly pickup only costs around 10,000 USD. This price includes the 250-325 USD conversion kit addition that Ford can give to buyers who want a truck that's ready to go green. Another good thing about doing the conversion is that it also saves some green in people's wallets. It can add 24 gallons of fuel (around 300 extra miles) to the F-250's original fuel efficiency of 525 mpg. Daily drivers, actors, businesses, and government organizations that do so can start feeling the benefits after driving for 75,000 miles.

  • Finally, like any celebrity, the a few crazy fans desperately want to have the Ford F-250 for themselves. According to the Highway Loss Data Institute, this super-duty pickup is the second most stolen vehicle of 2011.

  • Problems with the Ford F-250 Pickup 17 January 2013

    For six decades now, Ford has been continuously selling its F-Series pickup trucks. While not as popular as the smaller F-150, the F-250 model has nevertheless attracted quite a following. Since 1999, it has been sold as a Super Duty pickup model thanks to its heavier-duty body-on frame, more powerful engine, and bigger components with greater towing capacities. However, even if it came brand new and straight out of the dealer's lot, the F-250 still experienced a few glitches. Here are some of the common problems that have been experienced with Ford F-250 pickup parts and accessories:


    Problems with the price and the design

    The F-250 is a large pickup truck with a large asking price. The newer Super Duty models look bigger than the older F-250s and some have said that the extra width could create problems while parking or while maneuvering through more jammed up roads. Meanwhile, older or light duty F-250s have been thought to have the same body panels as the smaller F-150 but with heavy-duty axles, suspensions, and wheels. Despite carrying a hefty price tag, newer models of the F-250 have been criticized for still having the same plastic interior as much more budget-friendly pickups. What's more, those who prefer a diesel engine will have to pay more than 7,000 USD to get the option they want.


    Problems with broken parts

    Occasionally, great pickups like the F-250 experience broken parts. Many owners, for instance, have periodically needed to repair the ball joints on their steering and suspension systems. Meanwhile, others experience occasional problems with the engine that require repairs. The spark plugs might break off on gasoline engines while diesel lovers can experience failures with the high-pressure oil pump outlet-to-branch tube connector.


    Problems with the fuel economy sensor system

    Thanks to its onboard computers, the Ford F-250 knows that it can only take about 35 gallons of fuel for around 500 miles or so. A fuel economy of around 16.5 until 20 miles per gallon isn't so bad, but it does have a warning system that could get on some people's nerves. Drivers who can't get access to a diesel exhaust fluid within 50 miles of running out of the stuff will find a screen flashing a countdown warning with every mile lost.
