    heres the add on criagslist, I made the flatbed for it only as a temporary thing till I could find a new bed in good condition has alot of new parts on it, Ive put a lot of time and money into this truck, everything I know about cars is because Ive fixed everything on this truck. And now its for sale WITH OUT the plow.

    I would put some more info in your add. Like what motor it is, how many miles, what is wrong with the motor and maybe some better/more pictures of the truck.

    I would also put a price with a best offer on it alot of people (me included) would think that you want way to much for it and are hoping for a offer that you could accept.

    Just a thought

    After look at pictures that is way too low. It would be worth $1000 period with all parts that was new.

    Maybe I should call all low baller to go Indiana to steal all your account and charge for $10 to plow.

    Sorry if you think thats too low; but new engine -$2000, new bed -$500, painting the bed to match the rest of the truck -$300. I'd have $3400 of MY money wrapped up into a 12 year old truck. That sounds like a pretty fair price price for a 12 year old truck, at least around my part of the state. I really don't care how much of YOUR money is wrapped up into it because your money and my money are to very seperate things. Now, if you were to sink the approx. 2800 into it to make it a presentable, drivable, truck then my offer would be much higher. But seeing how theres still alot of work to be done, $600 still stands.

    Well I thank you for your offer. But I have decided to just keep it and fix it. It's more sensable for my money

    Yup. Kinda weird you would think being an F250 that it would have the 5.4
