Regular Car Reviews: 1996 Ford F-150 XL

Published on Jan 12, 2015 671,249 views

Typo fixed.
The 9th-gen F-150 was a transition period for Ford and Pickups in general. The Dodge ram showed the world that a pickup can be a toy and the other manufacturers followed frantically. This is still a very 80's stuck. it boasts that it has electronic fuel-injection. OOOOH.

  • Brian C
    Brian C 3 года назад call me old school, but this is my favorite looking F150.
  • Jason Fulcher
    Jason Fulcher 2 года назад bro the mid 60's models do!!
  • Jason Fulcher
    Jason Fulcher 2 года назад *doe!
  • Jason Fulcher
    Jason Fulcher 2 года назад yes, yes they are
  • Brian C
    Brian C 2 года назад +Holdadolla those Ford trucks from the late 60s and early 70s are definitely up there on my list. But personally, and this may be weird because I don't really know of the similarities and/or differences between the two, I'd rather own a Bronco from that era.
  • Brian C
    Brian C 2 года назад @Holdadolla ah, those are the Broncos I was thinking of. Still, the smaller ones look pretty cool, too.
  • yupitellwhut

  • Paul Morris
    Paul Morris Год назад 48-52 fat fender 53-57 effie 61-66 slick side 70-72 bumpside ( technically 67-72 but i prefer the grill of the 70-72 ) 73-77 dentside ( i prefer that grill over the 78/79 ) 80-86 bull nose ( well not 80-82 witch the swiss cheese frame ) 92-96 aeronose are my faves left out the 58-60 fridge and the 87-91 brick.( brick only looks good rusty and beat like a old farm truck )

  • MexicanBagpiper96

  • joebob3719
    joebob3719 4 года назад My pop-pop drove a late 80's F250(?), I never drove it because alas I was never taught stick, but this review brings up a conversation I had with my grandfather about the when I was a small boy. "Heh, the speedometer only goes to 80' (mph)" I boyishly scoffed. "It doesn't need to, life's not a race," He replied. I miss that man.
  • dbateman
    dbateman 4 года назад Yeah there is a reason that older pickups go slow, first of all they indeed aren't race cars.  The ride is bouncy and wallowy but actually settles down a bit with a load of stuff in the back.  Secondly the steering tends to be a bit vague.
  • Truck Stuff & More
    Truck Stuff & More 11 месяцев назад had my 93 f150 goin 120 down a hill and that's the most scared ive ever been going over 100mph olny reason I know the speed is because I had my phone and a gps speedometer

  • Nathan Mueller
    Nathan Mueller 2 года назад I love anything with a square body. All vehicles have become overly complex and parts put together tightly, ruining the possibility of working on cars for many working Americans, and the weekend mechanics who fix or modify cars. Of course this is by design for car dealerships to make money off of car work. And because of government regulations making cars more efficient, therefore smaller and more complex. Gone are the days when engine swaps and even changing tire sizes was easy.

  • Bearbait01
    Bearbait01 Год назад Sam Robb and I also believe the 5.0 didn't have 215hp that was the 351
  • ɐlex
    ɐlex Год назад Agreed. Dad had an f250 of that generation, and no decals existed

  • Zachary Adams
    Zachary Adams 4 года назад Got the front locker info all wrong. All the locking hubs do is lock the wheels to the front axle. It's still an open front differential but your front tires wont get and power if you don't lock the hubs even if you shift the transfer case to 4hi or 4low. 
  • thatdankcat
    thatdankcat 4 года назад (изменено) huh thats funny i was told you only gain one front wheel to spin more unless you lock the hubs, my suby has vacuum auto luck hubs so dont have to think about it  just keep wheels straight and go 
  • Michael Aker
    Michael Aker 4 года назад Right on... Was about to make the same exact comment.
  • 4rev4
    4rev4 4 года назад This.  On a truck like this, it doesn't matter if you're in 4hi/lo if the hubs aren't locked.
  • The Tranquil Tiger
    The Tranquil Tiger 4 года назад true but theres no diff between tyhe front and rear axle, so while the front tires can move at different speeds of eachother, they will still want to spin faster than the rear axle during a turn because they're farther from the pivot point so itll chew up the tires and cause the front end to make a hopping motion, especially when on packed snow.
  • Jake Burks
    Jake Burks 4 года назад Mr. Regular doesn't do trucks often and I think it shows sometimes
  • Leslie48
    Leslie48 4 года назад I think Mr. Regular is confusing 'locking hubs' with 'locking differential'.  A locking differential is a feature that's been around since at least the 40's and they all lock from inside the cabin, (That's what that tiny third lever next to the gear-shift and transfer-case lever in an old Army jeep is for).   Locking Hubs are a fuel-miser feature.  Un-lock the hubs and the wheels become free-spinning and no longer deal with the drag of the front driveshaft when in 2-wheel mode. Looks like it's 'V-6's are smoother than I-6's' all over again.  :)
  • Darwinpasta
    Darwinpasta 4 года назад @The Tranquil Tiger  That's only true if the transfer case is engaged full time. I didn't see a transfer case shifter in the cab, so that may be the case with this rig. (Terrible design if it is.) My Pathfinder has a transfer case shifter that means I can drive in two wheel drive with both hubs locked, then shift into 4x as needed. I unlock the hubs in the summer to save a bit of gas and some wear and tear on the CV joints.
  • StandardFish450
    StandardFish450 4 года назад @Darwinpasta It's not full time. you can clearly see the transfer case stick right next to the gear shift at 1:49. Most fords never came with full-time anyway. That was more of a Chrysler/AMC thing.
  • Darwinpasta
    Darwinpasta 4 года назад @StandardFish450 Good eye! I re-watched the bit where he was talking about the shift knob and the camera didn't go far enough left to see the 4x4 shifter.
  • -Tq-
    -Tq- 4 года назад That is such a common misconception. Locking Hubs are not locking differentials. Trust me, if they put front locking diffs in trucks since back then it would be boneriffic. 
  • joeracer302
    joeracer302 4 года назад @ChargedTTq I think it's just confusion over ambiguously termed drivetrain parts that sound very similar so are confused by people who are unfamiliar with 4x4 drivetrain. Not sure why people are making such a big deal out of it, but I guess this is YouTube lol

    Rogue 455 3 года назад +StandardFish450 and if you don't see a shifter on an f150, but it's 4x4, it's got the electronic 4x4 with an e4od, it's just a button on the dash for 4x4.
  • Daniel Bonner
    Daniel Bonner Год назад Zachary Adams came here to say same. Still need a locker to be truly locked, you're not even in 4x4 until you lock the hubs.
  • shonuffisthemaster
    shonuffisthemaster Год назад i think the autos of this era were push button 4wd, but the manuals were all stick, however i think the previous generation had stick transfer cases regardless. yes itd be awesome if they put locking diffs in these trucks from the factory! and you know what, what about havjng a spool and locking hubs.......wouldnt that essentially work the same as a diff lock? i suppose it might be really hard to steer in some offroad scenerios with an always locked front.

  • Brad V
    Brad V 3 года назад Your explanation of the front manual lock in hubs is incorrect. It doesn't make both front wheels turn at the same speed. It still has an open diff up front so the tires are allowed to turn at different speeds, the hubs connect the wheels to the axle shafts. The front wheels are free to spin when the hub is unlocked.
  • Branon Fontaine
    Branon Fontaine 2 года назад All depends on what you run in your differentials...I've got a 1974 Bronco, gobs of horsepower and torque from a 347 stroker, so I'm runnin a 9" with a Detroit locker in the rear, and a Dana 44 with a posi in the front, 4.88 gears....
  • Jimmy G
    Jimmy G 2 года назад agreed they are locking hubs this guy's is thinking locked differential.
  • Dan Thurston
    Dan Thurston 2 года назад Agreed.  The F150 didn't have a locking differential in the front.  The narrator doesn't know what he's talking about.  The 4X4 system with manual hubs doesn't work at all if the hubs are not locked in.
  • splewy
    splewy 4 года назад 4:50 Oh lawwd, you and trucks. ;) That's not what locking hubs do. You're confusing them with a locking differential. What locking hubs do is they allow the front wheels to be disconnected from the front drivetrain on a 4WD vehicle. In unlocked mode, the front hubs are disconnected from the front axle shafts. This improves fuel economy and reduces wear and tear on the 4WD system when used in 2WD mode because it means all that front drivetrain stuff isn't uselessly turning all the time. Turning them locked mode locks the front hubs to the front axle shafts, which allows power to be transferred to the front wheels once the transfer case has been shifted into 4WD. Brand new 4WD trucks still have locking/unlocking hubs, but all of them are electronically controlled now and automatically lock when the vehicle is shifted into 4WD.

  • Alex DooD
    Alex DooD 4 года назад It is easy to get the 2 mixed up because having the hubs locked will turn the axles and keeping a vehicle in 4wd will turn the axles regardless of the hubs being locked or not. The forces that make the the axles move in both situations are different but you end up with the same result.
  • splewy
    splewy 4 года назад @irsever  Yeah I think he's just not into trucks, so he doesn't really know much about them. It's okay though. I mean, I think all car guys have those areas where we're practically experts, and others where we're completely clueless. Like I couldn't tell you the first thing about motorcycles...
  • splewy
    splewy 4 года назад @vaughan zappa  Um, like 3-4 minutes? It would have taken way longer for me to make a video and post it to youtube.
  • Egor Malyshev
    Egor Malyshev 4 года назад AFAIR, F150 has only one differential, and it's in its rear. So when the front wheels are connected to axles via these manual hubs, stuff RCR says happens. 
  • jllego89
    jllego89 4 года назад @Egor Malyshev no, it has the transfer case that controls 4wd and front and rear differentials. The manual locking hubs are as stated, only to engage and disengage the hub from the front axle.
  • Egor Malyshev
    Egor Malyshev 4 года назад @jllego89 Thanks for clearing this out. In this case, of course, hubs are only for fuel economy.
  • meanieNJ
    meanieNJ 4 года назад @Egor Malyshev fuel economy and not putting unneeded wear on your front drivetrain. You can still but a new super duty with manual locking hubs. They're much stronger and cheaper to replace than auto hubs.

  • bluettr250
    bluettr250 4 года назад Agrees. It's no big deal to have the hubs locked in full time. Dodge did it for years. Astros have their front in all the time. The only reason that the hubs lock and unlock is so that one can use the transfer case for low range without locking the front in. Americans are so weird about hubs.
  • meanieNJ
    meanieNJ 4 года назад @bluettr250 Astros have full time AWD.  And no... hubs are to detatch the wheels from the front drivetrain for normal driving as explained 1000 fking times already lol.  Never in my life have I ever wished I could engage low range without 4x4 with it.

    kolton5543 4 года назад Not all but many new trucks don't lock and unlock the hubs. They instead will have a two piece axle shaft that separates instead. Its pretty use less as everything is still rotating from the other axle shaft. The only thing it does is keeps power going to the front tires (unless there is a locked differential). And they inevitably stop working within the first few years.

    John Fischer 2 года назад I think the old jeep yj did this too but it was controlled with a vacuum modulator when selecting 4wd
  • Ian Mcdowell
    Ian Mcdowell Год назад Uhh actually he is right. The transfer case will try to split the power equally front to back, but when turning the front whees are traveling a different distance, so the driveshafts don't turn an equal number of times. This resistance causes wear. Trucks that run in full time 4wd like land rovers have a center differential, usually with a viscous coupling, that allows the power to be split differentially front and back
  • Rusty Shackleford
    Rusty Shackleford Год назад Ian Mcdowell yeah but he's not referring to when 4x4 is engaged he's referring to the locking hubs confusing it for a locking diff

  • Austin Aubinoe
    Austin Aubinoe Год назад my base model 2016 F250 still has a manual transfer case, and manual locking hubs. we have a small fleet of F250s, most being 2004s with close to 200k. manual hubs let you avoid the vacuum issues. they work great.

  • P77777777
    P77777777 10 месяцев назад I like the bullnose ones better than the 90s ones looks wise but its hard to find a bullnose that doesnt have rust on it I wonder if you could just take the bullnose front end and tailgate and put it on a 90s one. The side panels didnt change except supposedly the wheel wells look very slightly different

    JRC99 10 месяцев назад P77777777 Bullnose wheel arches are squared off a lot more. Brick nose and Aeronose wheel arches are round.
  • buildingman
    buildingman 8 месяцев назад P77777777  Bullnose front end is from the 7th gen F-series truck (80-86). You can front end swap onto an 8th gen (87-91), but not onto a 9th gen (92-96). Reason why is the 9th gen included a crumple zone.

    sirgallium 2 года назад This was the last model year of trucks before they started getting super ugly in my opinion. They keep trying to 1 up each other with looking big and aggressive and bulgy.

  • Horatio Huffnagel
    Horatio Huffnagel 2 года назад Best looking trucks IMO were 1974-79 Chevy c-10. Nothing fancy just a nice looking truck with no 80's gimmicks or anything. A 350 engine usually, that you can crawl into the front and sit in the engine bay to work on. No electronics or useless crap. Love the old days.
  • MrSnowrocks
    MrSnowrocks 2 года назад The only "modern" truck that looks 1/2 decent is the 05 Silverado. But still, I'd take a 70's 80's square body any day of the week.

    CJ Colvin 2 года назад MrSnowrocks Amen Brother I have a 96 Ford F150 with 5.0L Windsor V8 with 203,485 miles on it and it's still going strong. The only thing I replaced on my truck was the starter but other than that mostly was just simple maintenance and cleaned out the transmission fluid just to get rid of the shuttering it was making and it hasn't had a problem ever since.
