    I as checking your site and noticed you use a 97 f 250 to plow. I am looking at a 97 f250 with a 460 auto trans, and was wondering how your truck has been plowing...and years you have used it to plow? Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You should be able to buy a new one for that type of money. A truck 4 years old should be closer to the mid to high teens.

    I have had great luck with my 97. I got it new for $24,500 in 1997 and it listed for almost 30,000. It's a 351 with about every option and a plow package too. I have used it for the past 3 seasons with no problems at all. I think $19,000 for that seems high.
