1999 F-350 Passenger Side

Practically every drivetrain part that could wear out in this 1999 F-350 has been replaced or upgraded.

While the modern Ford F-150 will do nearly as much work as an older Super Duty, the F-350 offers some key advantages that might lead some half-ton owners to go shopping for an older one-ton. If you are one of those people, we might have the ideal truck for you.

The 1999 Ford F-350 Super Duty shown here was posted for sale in the marketplace of our sibling site Ford-Trucks.com. While this truck is 20 years old with nearly 300,000 miles on the odometer, the seller has done a ton of maintenance work to make sure that this diesel-powered work horse is on the job for years to come.

The Introduction

When “BBslider001” posted this 1999 Ford Super Duty for sale in the FTE Marketplace, he included a full list of the upgrades made to the truck within the past year. He explains that the truck was modified for increased longevity, not more power or improved pulling capabilities, but as you can see in the partial list that we have included here, the OP has gone to great lengths to keep the engine and transmission working properly.

The OP also explains that this truck has the Lariat Package with “Leather Interior, Power Everything and Cruise control, while pointing out that the only problems are some body dings here and there. The truck is currently located in San Diego, so if it has always been a California truck, that would explain the lack of rust.

Great Daily Work Truck

If you have a job that requires you to haul or tow things with some regularity, or you spend lots of time on rough, unpaved roads, this 1999 Ford F-350 could make a perfect daily driver. While the mileage might scare off someone who isn’t familiar with the longevity of well-maintained diesel engines, this truck has been modified to last another 200,000 miles of normal, work truck use.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
