    I found a 1999 crew cab with a 6 ft box v-10 4x4 78,000 miles
    Some dings and dents (from picture and description) It comes with a 9.2 boss v-low. Not sure of condidtion

    They want $7500 for it Firm

    New plugs and all new exhaust studs

    Owned by a Limo company

    Does this sound to good to be true or am I paranoid?

    the reason I ask, is there are people asking more then that for just a ex cab truck with twice as many miles no plow

    Sounds like you are getting a bargoon!

    I just paid $18,000 for a 2003 F250 Superduty 4x4 with a extended cab and 8 foot box with 67,000 kilometers on the odometer. The truck has never seen a winter because it has hauled a trailer to Florida every year. I now have to buy a plow and salter for it.
    I'll have $30,000 invested before it even pushes snow.
    If you are getting truck and plow it sounds like a great deal. I would have a mechanic check the front end and tranny over before you buy it if possible.:nod:

    I am thinking that if i look at it and it seems ok, even if i have to drop a few dollars into it for a few things i will still be getting a deal.

    I hopefully am going to go look at it this week

    Good price but I would definately make sure the plug holes didn't get stripped when they changed plugs.

    thats market price for a gas sucking 11 year old vehicle. hell v10s dont hold value off the lot!!! but they get just aobut the same mileage as the 5.4!! buy it and dont look back. 99's have the unimproved heads so they spit plugs. not a disaster as they can be fixed when they pop.
