Super Duty is the proven leader in the over-8,500-pound GVWR truck segment with a reputation as America’s get-the-job-done, rugged, practical and capable truck. For 2004, Super Duty builds on its “Built Ford Tough” tradition with new interior and exterior equipment and the addition of a powerful Ford Harley-Davdison™ model available mid-model year.
The F-250 and F-350 Super Duty pickups are available in Regular Cab, SuperCab and Crew Cab body styles in XL, XLT and Lariat trims. For even higher payload capacity,

Design and Equipment
Super Duty has a confident stance, drop-down beltline, round wheel openings and oversize grille with side nostrils. Clean, sheer surfaces with distinctive geometric forms and strong lines introduce a modernized, highly structured look, emphasizing the overall sense of power.
Both SuperCab and Crew Cab configurations are best-in-class for interior roominess. The King Ranch special edition is trimmed in yards of rich, brown Castaño leather with unique badging inside and out.
The XLT Sport package includes a monochromatic paint scheme with Ebony interior. The FX4 package makes the Super Duty ready for off-road with skid plates, Rancho® shock absorbers and a steering damper.
