    Just started a landscaping company and will be doing plowing this year. Been looking at this truck and would like to get some opinions:
    2006 Ford F250 Super Duty XL 2 Dr Regular Cab 4wd
    6.0 Powerstroke Diesel v8
    5 speed auto
    Dual 110 amp alternators
    Reverse Vehicle Aid Sensor
    Tow Command Integrated Trailer Brake Controller
    Off-road package
    Heavy Service Suspension Package
    Snow Plow Package

    Edmunds.com says it would be about $31,000.

    Did I miss anything for plowing / salting?

    Thanks
    Kevin

    Thanks for the comment....

    Would you prefer a diesel for about $5000 more or a gasoline engine?

    Thanks

    My Dodge is a diesel, but if money is tight you could take the 5K for the diesel and put on a brand new blade for even less. Just a thought.
