    Agreed with deice. I'm think the lower side of the scale. 2wd and an engine drip.

    Just for comparison, i bought a 2000 F450 with 125k, 2wd, 12' dump bed, 8' meyer plow, 7.3L diesel for $10,600.

    I thought I paid a little much for it considering after i bought it i found out it needed a new dump hinge ($800), a new alternator and batteries (around $475), and it only came with half the plow wiring...

    Yours looks to be in great shape and i wish i stumbled upon your truck a few months ago, I have a question, is your truck an old brickman truck?

    Its worth the exact same as my 99 250 XLT 4x4. You should probably just trade me even up ;)

    Yes it is! Good eye!
    Injectors went bad and they parked it for 2 years. A "little" $ and elbow grease, she is a beautiful girl again.

    Since the 6.0l has a bad rep, is it worth me buying a 04 or 05 f550 with blown head gaskets to fix up? Is there value roughly the same as a 03 7.3l. I am debating about flipping trucks during the winter. Good Idea? I can get my hands on many trucks from Brickman.:confused:

    Dumps seem to fetch pretty good money, add to that all the goodies you've got, central hydros for example are big money new. A highly desirable engine with under 100k miles, she should fetch decent money for you. That truck here on craigslist would be listed for $20k+.

    You'd be a fool to do this.

    Why? Because of the 6.0l?

    I almost bought a 2004 6.0L from brickman, it had 81k and some change on it and when i was test driving it the turbo blew... It went from a $10250 price tag quickly to a $8750 price tag. It had central hydros, dump bed with tool boxes, and came with a plow. I still passed on the truck, not worth it at all with that engine.
