    This guy has a 9'2" Western VBlade that he used on his 2006 F-550 dump truck and I want to put it on my 2005 F-350. I'm not worried about making it fit, I'm more or less asking if you guys think $4500 is a fair price for this used plow. It has some rust on it but has been garage kept. :dizzy: Which makes me curious to say the least.
    What do you guys think on this one? I have a price in my head but want to see if it lines up with what the xperts have to say! Thanks in advance.

    Yes sorry, I was thinking of Boss sizes for some reason. No pics, I posted a craigslist wanted ad and he responded to it today. He said it is in excellent condition with some rust.

    excellent condition doesnt include rust in my book... may be in very good condition but i think that price may be a little steep....

    That's exactly what I was thinking!

    What do you guys think I should offer him, comes with mount, wiring, hand held remote.

    I just paid $4875 including tax but no install for a brand new 8'6" MVP Plus in Buffalo. I would think that is a little expensive.

    Go get a brand new one for close to the same price.

    I'd say thats alittle high but i really don't know western plows. However for reference I have seen new 9'6" Western V plows on ebay for about 4875. shipped to your house, and I could get you a 9'2" Boss poly power v plow for 4865.70 shipped to your door. I would agree with making him a low offer.

    I called a dealer over in Lincoln and he quoted me $5403, that's installed and with sales tax already figured. In other words, the other guy is a huge rip off. I am going to go a step further though and get the wide-out instead. $6107, installed with sales tax. I'm gonna offer him $5900 and I'll buy it same day. What do you guys think?

    I'm getting a 8 Ft. Western wide out installed next week $5545.00 including tax. Cash and carry was $5,045.

    no kidding? Was it that price up front or did you have to haggle for that?
