    In the non-winter months we are a landscape contractor. Looking for a new F350 SRW Gas 4x4. Only need a regular cab, gas 4x4. Not concerned about a ton of chrome so XL package is fine with us. Power group to get power windows and locks, snow plow prep and tow package are the only real options I want. Anyone buy something similar lately? Looking for a ballpark price so when I go to the dealers this week I have a general idea of where I can be. List on these trucks that Ive looked at so far is about $35,000 on the MSRP sticker.

    Any help would be great. Tired of trying to find something in the used market worthwhile its time to get another new truck.

    what i'v been doing for years is get them off a documented lease 3 yrs. old from the dealer . pop pop always trades them in . just got a 2009 XLT with 33k for a very reasonable #. 24k

    Funny you mention that, someone else told me a similar thing last week. How did you go about finding them though? Warranty still?

    yes 5 yr / 100k . go to your dealer , tell him what ur looking for . he can get it within a few weeks . Thumbs Up

    try to make friends with him , buy a lunch or dinner . chum him up . it's worth it .
    make sure you do an oasis report on anything you look at . very important you do this .
