    The first trucks asking price is 10,500 the stats are. 2001 F250 w/ 7.3 powerstroke diesel. lariat package, only has 160K miles the tires are pretty new and has hiniker plow but it doesnt say the size of the plow. The second trucks asking price is 2,500 it is an 87 f250 with 8ft plow and its 4 Wheel Drive, 300, 6 Cylindar, 4 Speed Transmission and they say they a new tranny in. What is your opinion on the trucks and what would they fect per hour sub contracting and are they good for a begginer?

    300 6cyl 4 speed manual! No, no, no. Stay away from it.
    The 01 is probably in the ball park, but I wouldn't spend 10k on 1 truck just starting out.

    The 3rd truck is a 92 f250 7.3L diesel with 8.5ft plow (western) with 150kmiles on the truck. they want $3800 for this one. my 4th one to choose from is a 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty Extended Cab, Short Bed, 5.4 Triton V8 Engine, Automatic Transmission, Clean Truck Inside & Out for the age of it. Newer ball joints, tie rods, transmission, tires etc... runs and drives great! Has 197,000 miles on it. this comes with a 2007 hiniker plow 8"6" and for this they want $8500 total although i dont like the fact that its not diesel but idk how much that matter for relability which is why im asking everyone on the site

    I like the 99 but that probably because I have an 02. Over priced in my opinion. I'd offer $6k, maybe go up to $6500 at the most. Atleast in my area

    That 92 would make a great truck. I have a 92 f350 srw 7.3 and love it.

    Infact, I may sell it if the price is right. 90k miles but has rust. Extremely reliable truck. Comes with a Unimount plow. New tires, batts, GPR, gp's, etc...

    No it doesnt have to be a ford its just there are no chevy plows for sale in the area and all the chevy's are way more expensive and any chevy over a 1500 is rare around here
