    Well I owned an F150 so I'll try and help you out. There are a few things. 1. It's a manual truck, just something to think about if your planning on using it plowing. 2. It's got a lot of miles on it.

    I just sold my 95 Ford F-150 fully loaded in mint condition (needed a bit of front end work, ball joints and such) for $3800, it had 4 wheel drive and it was automatic with only 123,000 miles on it. Now, comparing those 2 trucks, I think that you can find a little better deal on an F-150 for $2-3k. I don't think that truck is worth what they are asking I'd say that is worth less than 1K. I'm not trying to bash you, but I really think you can find something way better, and I'd really to see you get ripped off. I do think you still could go look at it and check it out, just don't make a decision the first time. How much do you have to spend? I'll do some looking around for you.

    Thanks, Ill be doing no plowing with this truck. I dont want to spent more than $2000, but want to look closer to $1500, I know I could talk them down some because of the miles, but from the pic, I can see no rust where it seems to be common on the F-150's. I want to look at it, Ill take some pics, post them tommorow (If I can go look at it). I love the way this truck looks, but does it run as good as I would like? I hope to find out tomorrow.

    I saw the truck, and it was in real good condition on the outside and the engine LOOKED like it had no problems. This was by far the cleanset F-150 I have seen in my price range. I want to get a good mechanics opinion on it first. But lady at the lot said that her son has drove it and it is a great runner for the money. I asked about the 4x4 and she said no problems, but it may need a u joint down the road. I mentioned the high miled, but she said nothing other than yes they are kinda high. But it seems to have been kept up well, and it still has the Mossy Oak seat and steering wheel covers.

    It looks real clean. The 302 is a great motor and will run for a long time. If it runs well I would go for it.

    Like I say, this is the cleanest thing Ive looked at yet, I want good opionion from omebody who can look at it, and won buy it unless I can talk them down because of the mileage.

    If you are interested, here is the Lawnsite response, but hey they spend more time on laenmowers anyways.:nod: Well, I am a member and I like the site, just kidding.

    the 302 is an awesome motor a little off topic but my buddy is in the process of boring his 302 out and stroking it to like 347 i believe should be above 400 HP when done :yow!: i cant wait. :D

    Did you decide if your gonna buy it yet? Since your not going to be plowing with it, it would probably be alright of a truck. I still think the price is kinda high, but let me know what you decide to do. Good luck to you.
