1978 F250 3/4 ton 4x4 "Explorer and Ranger" Trim
1978 F250 4x4 with both the Explorer suspension package and Ranger trim package. The Explorer package is primarily a heavy duty suspension package. It adds a rear anti sway bar, heavier springs resulting in a higher 8100# GVW rating, , a graphics package, and plaid cloth seat inserts. The Ranger package adds styling and fancier trim.
This 4x4 still features the original paint and graphics originally from California. It is an absolutely excellent running and driving 4x4. It has a 400 engine. It has a Granny 4 speed with manual lockers. Other options include power steering, power disc brakes, limited slip 4.10 rear axle, dual fuel tanks, etc. Overall this is a nice survivor. It has some dents, dings, scrapes, and scratches, but it is still original so you know what you are getting. It does have a recessed goose neck hitch in the bed floor. It has a new aluminum radiator, new factory green carpet, new door seals and window seals. I replaced the rear drums and brakes and pads on the front recently, the heater core just sprung a leak on the new carpet, so I bypassed the heater lines. I have personally used this truck for four years, it drives nice and straight.
