    Well here's another. Hopefuly it will be my last for a while. :D

    Here is a list of trucks I'm currently looking at. I would like some thoughts and votes. :cool:

    2003 F-250 XL ~ 44k miles - 4x4 - 5.4L - Auto - Redg Cab - NEVER Plowed : $9,500
    2001 F-250 XL ~ 56K miles - 4x4 - 5.4L - Auto - Reg Cab - NEVER Plowed : $8,000
    2004 F-250 XLT ~ 90K miles - 4x4 - 6.0L - Auto - Reg Cab - NEVER Plowed : $9,500
    1999 F-250 XLT ~ 84K miles - 4x4 - 5.4L - Auto - Ext Cab - NEVER Plowed : $6,500
    2002 F-250 XL ~ 35K miles - 4x4 - 5.4L - Auto - Reg Cab - NEVER Plowed $11,500

    On all of these I would need to buy a plow.........I've found two plows by me for $2500 that are one year or less old.

    i think i'd go with the '99 ex-cab...cheaper, bigger cab, low miles....with the money you save you can fix possible problems. it would be my pick.

    Forgot to mention that the 1999 has the full 8' bed, which is nice.

    And don't forget that you'll have to spend $1000 on all the truckside equipment.

    OK gotcha.......I'm really considering that '99. I think I can get him to $6000 cash.

    You should ck to see which vehicles have a plow prep package (esp if you are going to do commercial). That may narrow down your choices

    I put it up for a joke as well. lmao


    I not positive but I belive all of them have the plow prep.

    I know the guy is firm on the '03.......atleast for now. At the end of the month he said if it doesn't sell he might take $9k.

    Not sure on that diesel.............what would you offer? I know he originally wanted $10k



    Oh, that 99 is black with silver trim......reason why I'm kinda leaning towards that one is because it would be a like a little "fleet" and they'd be twins. Plus its way cheaper then the rest......saves me enough money to put a really nice plow on it.

    extenden cabs w 8 ft bed and fords turning radius suck for houses, would not even think about it, if doing comm work its ok you can get a used plow set up for $2000 for any of them. i would keep what you have for this winter learn how to plow, learn your houses. if any damage occurs who cares sell it in the spring or keep work only. next year buy a nice truck for estimates and personal use.

    dam!, i wish i could find deals like that where i live. actually, jersey isnt that far... Depending on the size of your driveways, if its not to big id go with the 99, extra room in the cab and a full size bed = good. if not go with the lowest mileage, even if its not the cheapest, it could be a whole year of miles without trouble on top of a higher mileage truck and thats always worth it on the initial price. good luck!

    Whatever you don't DONT'T buy the 2004 6.0 Diesel, all they are good for are boat anchors. Worst engine ever invented, injector problems, head gasket problems, turbo fins freezing up, head bolts stretching. :dizzy:

    buy them all, so i can strobe em all up for you..

    honestly...that 6.0 seems way underpriced...i'd look at that...otherwise the extra cab is ok..

    BUT THE 5.4 IN THE SUPERDUTYS ARE SLOW AS HELL......UNDERPOWERED
