    well you would be better taking off every thing from the truck parting it out and selling the plow and assembly for that year truck on craigs list..... you'll find a buyer...

    Maybe try resizing your pics.( Look in posting picture thread ) I would think you would take the $300.00 from the salvage company and sell the plow seperately. I have no idea what that plow is worth.

    thats hard to say without looking at it, is the frame bent ? you may get more out of it in parts,
    did they gave it a salvage title ?

    Get your $300.00 from the insurance company and sell the plow on Graigs List. I would think you could get at least $1000.00 if its in decent shape.

    I'd go the part out route too, probably get 3-500 each for eng,trans,transfer case,bed....less for wheels/tires,drive shafts susp parts. Will take a little longer but you'll end up with more bucks.

    the front axle alone will get $1000 all day long.

    hows the bed is it rusty everyone is looking for those beds
    the truck is worth parting out then when your all said and done take the frame to the scrap yard not the junk they wont give you anything for the frame

    take the insurance money and part the truck if they give you whatever it is for the truck take it , i know i went threw this i have a 96 f250 4x4 i got swiped in the drivers side from the front fender to the last panel on the bed it wasnt my fault though his insurance company came took pics and said the truck is toalted i had the option of give it to them to scrap or me keeping it i kept mine they sent me a check for a decent amount but my 96 only has about 50,000 miles on it.
    i put the truck back together but you dont know what its like trying to find parts for these things.
    :mechanic:


    insurance we pay all this money and get s...t back when something happens

    There are trucks made for work, and then there are truck made just to grab attention. The F-150 Harley-Davidson that we are talking about here belong the latter category.
    ussmileyflag It does it very well and it becomes pretty apparent with the very first glance at the stunning 2010 Ford 4 x 2 F-150 Harley-Davidson. The 2010 Ford F-150 4×2 Harley Davidson comes with a base price of payup $42,690, and has a 3 year/36,000 mile of critical warranty, a 5 year/60,000 mile roadside assistance, a 5-year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty. The estimated fuel economy for the truck is of 14 mpg for city and 20 for mpg highway. So let’s ride. Every Single Inch a Harley::mechanic:
    Ford has been launching the Harley-Davidson versions of the F-150 for more than 14 years now, and the special edition pickup trucks have been a masterpiece for both the companies.

    If the box is rust/dent free it should be worth 500.00..Good rust free doors are good for 80-100 bucks each easy enough. If tires and rims are good theres another 150-200.00.. If parts were good and you were closer I would take them..,Part it out if its good!!
