    It hurts to do, but now's the time to be a first time home buyer, so I think I'll sell the truck and replace it with a beater for now if at all. I want to free up as much cash as possible. You've all seen the pics...

    Here's my CL ad:

    http://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/cto/1566075248.html

    It looks like I should be asking $9000 after reading some of the other ads on here. People are selling junk for crazy prices right now. A Unimount plow for almost $3000? C'mon. Anyway, the truck: is a loaded XLT with power everything, REMOTE START/keyless entry/alarm and about55k miles on the 5.8 and auto trans, Warn lockouts, new front brakes and front wheel bearings LAST WEEK! new 120 amp alternator to replace the stock 95 amp alt a month or so ago, etc. It's a very nice looking truck that is just starting some bubbling on the bottom of the front fenders. The underside is extremely clean and it never had a hitch until I bought the truck earlier this year and installed one. The interior is very clean, but the headliner is a little saggy and the ac doesn't blow cold. I run full synthtic oil in it as I was told that it always had when I bought it and a small amount leaks from the rear main seal. The truck went to Iowa and back a few weeks ago to pick up a motorcycle and it did great. The blade is a 7.5' Western Unimount that has been used about 5 times ever and has the original cutting edge The tires are VERY nice BFG All Terrains. I'm going to miss this truck as I love the OBS Fords (here's a link to a thread I started: http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=80957&highlight=obs+ford+club+for+men), but I don't NEED two trucks for this winter. Let me know if you have any questions. I'm about to buy a house and would like to free up some cash, so I would be interested in a trade down plush cash. I'm most interested in 4x4 Fords 80-91 (Bronco, F150, F250, F350) or 4x4 Dodge Rams 94+ because I have plow setups for these trucks.

    I'd like to get $7k, but I'll entertain offers.

    And this is the blade that would probably go with it:

    Yup, should have bought it before plow season when I knew how awesome was. I might be interested in anything that has a plow on it plus cash...

    I have been following the truck in your obs thread. I might want to do a trade and cash deal. I have a 95 ford f250 xlt w/ a 7.5 unimount. 101k, 5.8 Runs, shifts well. Some dents, some rust. Put in about 2k in repairs/parts past 6 mos. let me know if you might be int, and I'll take some pics and provide more details.

    I might be interested in more details. I'd like to keep my plows, so maybe just a truck trade and you keep your blade...? Send me an email at patricktberry@gmail.com and we'll see.

    I go through trucks so I don't have to go through women...

    Really, this truck hasn't given me a single problem this winter. I'd really just like to free up as much cash for the biggest down payment on a house that I can muster. This is the first winter ever that I haven't had to scramble to get things working before or in the middle of a storm because the equipment is all good this year. I'm open to offers...

    Would you be interested in selling without the plow. My brother is looking REAL hard right now and about to pull the trigger but he's more around the $4500 +/- price range. With the plow removed from the picture I think you guys would be within reason of being able to work something out.
    Let me know if you're interested.

    I'd actually like to sell it without the plow. Both of the plows for this truck work so well that I'd really like to hold onto them. $5250 with the mount and wiring removed or $5750 with the truck setup minus plow.

    Would you sell the complete plow setup?

    And keep the truck without the plow? That wouldn't help my situation at all. Thanks though.

    I go back and forth with this so much... The truck is still for sale and I can sell it in a few different combinations: plow, no plow, no plow setup, etc. I just had coated brake lines put on and I forgot to mention that I have a cap for it.

    The truck I have would probably only be worth $1,500. It needs brake work and electrical work to get the turn signals and tail lights to work(Brake lights work). The body is in rough shape and needs a new pass door( last owner hit a pole with the mirror ripping the mirror off the truck and damaging the door and breaking the glass). The plow needs a little A frame work otherwise the plow works great with the pump under the hood. Let me know if your interested and I can get some pictures. (641)512-3677

    Ok, it would take a good amount of cash on top. You might be right.

    Otherwise I would love to be able to get your truck and plow and do a trade deal with you.
