    i have been wanting to get 93-97 ford f250/350 pickup but have been having some problems finding one.
    The one i did find is a very clean 96' f250 with a 351, white, power window,doors, a/c, etc with 180,000 miles for $4,800 without plow.
    I also found a 90 f350 1 ton 4x4 with plow and dump with ac, pw windows, slight rust , 460, 40,000 miles for $4,500. I thought about just buying the 1 ton for now and sell it for a pickup next year with a blade, or should i go ahead and get the truck now, or does it seem high?

    While I love the looks of a 92+ ford truck ,I have to say that if you can get one that has 140k less miles go for it. If it has a plow and is ready to go use it this year and you'll probably be able to get rid of it for close to what you paid for it. I know it is a little older but it has a lot less miles. To me( my opinion w/o seeing it) a 12 yr. old truck w/180k for $4800 is high. The one ton probably has a solid axel and the 3/4 a twin I beam so that makes it an easy choice for me. JMO!!! Good luck!!!
