    92 ford F350 Dumping rack body with 8.5 foot plow (fisher I think) rebuilt trans last year. Seller says has some rust but nothing major. Rust is on fenders etc not frame. Seller wants $7000.
    I've seen F250's with plows go for $7000 that are 1997's but those are with regular beds.

    Welcome to PLOWSITE :waving: I think that in my area $7,000.00 might be at the top of the top end! Try and offer him $4,500.00 for it and see what he does. Is it an auto trans, what motor does it have, is it 4X4, what shape is the plow in, & any other goodies???

    Well it has 180K miles reg cab 4x4 dullie auto trans 7.3 diesel non turbo. Plow is said to be in decent shape and I was told the racks are tall. The tranny was rebuilt with heavy duty parts. I'm going to look at it today and I'll take some pics.

    Ragged Truck

    Playboy, Sorry to hear that the truck turned out to be so ragged. :dizzy: Let the guy sit on it & maybe you can pick it up for $2,500.00.

    We'll see. The mirrors are pulling the door skin apart. I walked up to it and it moves and moves the door skin with it as if the door is made of rubber. Reminds me of pimp my ride on MTV. A window was broken and the truck had a bad smell of damp mildew. It was just sad to see a posible good work truck in that condition.
