    found a 89 f 250 w a myers 7.6 on it. truck body in pretty good shape cept rust in bed wheel wells n a cab corner. truck has 89xxx miles on it. pump has been rebuilt n has another pump ready to be rebuilt. New wheel bearings, new u-joints, new clutch, serviced 4wd, new front gas tank, new heavy duty battery etc. as of last year (approx. 500 miles ago). will need new tires also. no leaks that i have seen, oil pan is good also. test drove it today n will need new rotors n steering is a lil loose compared to what im use to driving which is a 80 k5 blazer n a s10 blazer. guy wont let it go for under 3500 but i think its worth 3. what do you guys think?

    i dont know much on repairs for SFA trucks but do know IFS. would take the truck somewhere to have it look over 100% once bought to find out what needs to be fix asap. blade is in great shape just surface rust on it. should i be worried much on the truck due 2 age? will be subbing for a buddy of mine and if the truck fails i do have the k5 as a back up so. o has a 302 also

    seems pricey for a 89 id keep looking for that money you should be able to find a 94-97 gasser.
