    Alright, after talking with some of you which has been very helpful, I think I may not use my 75 F150 as a starter. Rather, I found a:

    "95 F-250 XLT 4x4 With plow, power windows, power locks, ac, Dual Tanks(one was removed), tow hitch, some rust but nothing major, Runs And Drives Good, Asking $3500 O.B.O"

    Is this reasonable? It looks like a decent truck and the plow is atleast WITH the truck. I need to actually go see it, but I wanted anyones opinion. I really am seriously interested in getting into the plowing business and I need all the help I can get. Thanks guys.

    Sounds good for a starter truck for plowing. Check out the mechanics of it and figure if it's started rusting, it's going to need fixing in a year or so. A lot depends on your state inspection laws. Up here, I had a truck that looked real good, but it had some rust-through on the lower driver's door, which failed inspection. Are you able to do body work and mechanical work? Are you planning on a backup truck, too?
