    I bought this truck about two months ago from a friend who owned it since it had 30k on it with plans on plowing this year. Well things are changing and I'm trying to get myself out of the hole so I'm selling. 97 F250 HD. Since I bought it I put a new fuel pump and fuel lines on the motor. New Grand Rock Exh. 3.5in down pipe, into 4in, into 5in out of the muffler to a single 5 in. stack. Also open air filter kit. Truck has 168K. The diesel runs great once warmed up. Needs glow plugs to help with starting issue. It is a 5 speed with a clutch in the past 18k miles. Has had alot of work done in the past 15 to 20k miles. Tires have less that 10k on them. The truck does have some ryst and two dings. Interior is in good cond. It does have bucket seats with center counsel. Drivers seat was broken and welded so no recline. Also the steering column was switched out and the one that was put in does not have tilt or cruise. Truck was NEVER plowed. I put the plow on this month "December" and ONLY plowed my drive once. Western 7.5 Unimount. I put a new pump and valves in it. Works flawless. I am including some pics but I do have more. 8500.00 FIRM! PLEASE serious inq only. Located in the Cleveland Ohio area. This is a great daily driver and plow truck.You can reach me by email @ vengeanceent@yahoo.com.

    Truck does have a bit of rust but all in all not to bad. If I don't get any bites I'll just keep it and make some money with it.

    I'd ebay it. Bluebook or NADA on that truck is around or more what your asking. Amazing what the old powerstrokes will bring in.
