    I really like my 2001 F250...

    One thing to consider is that a pickup that is not at least a supercab is somewhat a PIA; just not enough space in the cab. When I was looking for mine, I was specifically looking for a short box, supercab. The short box is a necessity (IMO) when having a plow truck unless all you do are open lots and long driveways with now major obstacles or sharp turns...

    Looks like a real nice truck to me.Just make sure to check it over good and test drive it.Price doesnt seem bad at all How many miles?

    I actually prefer the regular cabs for the fact that a short bed truck is no use to me in my landscaping business.

    I think you might be able to find one a little cheaper. I found a 2004 f250 ext cab short box with 35k miles for under 20k

    We could live without the supercab with the custom-color, $1700+ utility back on it, nice looking truck!
    If it really comes with Fisher's plow mounts( no mounts are shown on this truck) and the new-plow - we'd expect to pay about $23,500 for gas and $25,500 for diesel with low mileage and very good preventive maintenance on this Super Duty.

    If the back brakes and linings are nearly shot and unnoticed, front brakes, 4x4 hubs and ball joints are all less than 50% capacity, and nobody saw fit to do the 25,000 mile radiator treatment or the 30,000 mile transmission service yet, then yeh Premier, you prolly could buy a SuperDutyXLT for a F150XL price.

    If I were you I wouldn't buy a truck with a regular cab. I think the extended cab (the one with the half door) is the best situation. You have room to keep stuff out of the weather, and it doesn't make the truck longer or take much bed space. The back seat should be able to come out so you can use it as a storage space.

    Sounds like a good price.. a dealer was asking 19,500 for my 2000 F-250 XLT with a brand new Fisher MM2 plow, around 50,000 miles .. I was able to talk them down to 16,500 so 17,000 sounds like a good price for an 02.

    I bought my 2000 F350 RC PSD with a Western 8' plow last Jan for $12,000.
    I absolutely love the RC, no place to collect junk in the cab like a pack rat. My last truck was a SC, LWB poor turning radius compared to my RC.
