    I'm looking for a truck to tow a trailer with and also be a fairly common daily driver. What is the towing capacity for a 1995 F250 and a 1998 F250? Lets say it's an extended cab.

    Any big negatives/positives with the years, other than one being newer?

    Thanks!

    What this nigga said.

    According to wiki, and I think its about right, 6600 GVWR. If it's an HD, 9000GVWR.

    Some advice (if you're still looking): Go for the '98 as it will be the turbo 7.3L PowerStroke. Much better aftermarket if you need more juice, and much better support.

    I think that's also the year they added the intercooler, if not it was 99.

    Good info can be found on the PowerStroke forums, google it.

    Wiki page for F-series trucks:
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_F-Series

    I love my '97 Super Duty.
