Good Price for This Plow?

    I've been trying to sell one of my trucks, '97 F250 7.3. It has an 8' Western Ultramount. It's in very good shape. A guy offered $2,500 for the plow setup only, said he'd dismantle and un-wire the truck side himself. Is that a good price for the plow or should I try to get him up a little higher?

    Some pics would help us give you an idea.

    Don't have many on hand, but this is what I had on my phone.

    When I get home I'll reformat so the pics show in the post.

    I just changed the fluid and filter, and the plow works perfectly. The cutting edge is getting a bit worn, but that's all.

    These are all the pics I've got right now. The truck's on a corner with a For Sale sign at the moment.

    If it was mine I'd take $2500.00 for it.... I'd caution you about having the guy pulling the wiring though, short cuts could be taken that could result in electrical gremlins. If it was me I'd pull the wiring and let the guy remove the truck mount.

    It's an older ultra mount. You are not going to get much more than that. I would never let someone I did not no remove a plow set up from my truck. Do it yourself, it is not that hard to do.

    Thanks guys. Of course, the guy completely flaked. Fell off the face of the earth...

    I hate selling stuff.
