    New tires and brakes all the way around
    8 Ft dump body (electric over hydro) with outside and underneath of body rhino lined
    Boss mount and wiring already on the truck.

    I picked up a '03 F-450 XL 6.0 Powerstroke

    4x4 61,000 Miles with 9'6 western V and salter

    Needed drive tires and rear brakes and a few minor other things. I've probably put $1500-$2000 into it.

    Sounds like the one your looking at is in a bit better shape than mine-Mines no junker but its a work truck. Few scratches, etc

    I'd pay around 18-20 for the truck your looking at.

    I was thinking of offering 18K for it. I will say the body and paint are perfect, no scratches at all.

  6. Thats a nice looking dump truck, let us know what you end up getting it for. I would just make sure to have the tranny fluid changed out, just to be on the safe side, would hate to have that thing go right after you buy it since it had a plow on it.
    I'm looking at a similar one 2000 F350 dump diesel w/ plow, one owner an older customer I have who just loves his dump truck but has asked me if I would be interested in it.

    the used market is much smaller now . the prices have sprung up overnight since the cash for clunkers program . which is ridiculous 1 year ago everything was much less . first things first get an oasis report. that will give you the room to deal . IMO nice truck and she'll be ready for ever you throw that her .

    I'm impressed, you're gonna give the 6.0 a second chance after all the trouble your other one gave you. It is a very nice looking truck and will fit right in with your white fleet.

    Thats a nice looking truck, there is one down the road from me for $12,900, '03, 7.3, 68,xxxm,4x4, vplow, sander, I will see if I can find the local ad
    Those trucks are a dime a dozen in my area, especially if they have a 6.0
    Id say $20k max, JMO

    They would only give you $4000.00 for a 2004 truck! Holy Crap... what was there justification behind that? That truck should be worth ALOT more then that

    Told them to fly a kite, dont want to lower the price at all so they can keep it. Back to shopping!

    Is it me, or wouldn't you think all the truck dealers should be hard up to sell a truck?:dizzy:
    No sense in walking away bent over, feeling violated, after the sale.

    Does not seem that way. I have been in the market for a used dump. Every time I find one that meets all my requirements it is already sold by time I call. Seems like decent dumps sell quickly!

    Well the dealership owner called me and said if I was offering 18K, there was no sense of talking to me. Haha, I said I thought it was fair, and then he told me to "get bent!"
