    Looking to add to my fleet. Just found this 2010 Ford F-350 SD XLT 4WD with 6,452 original miles. Asking Price is $26,998. Clean Carfax. Fisher Plow Mounts and wiring are installed (No Plow). Truck has 5.4 engine and 3.55 sure lock rear end.

    I'm currently running a 2008 F-250 with the V-10, and 4.10 rear end with Boss V-XT , and love it.

    Just seeking thoughts and advice on this truck regarding maximum price I should be willing to offer, and 5.4 engine history and performance, and Fisher Plow suggestions.

    Thanks!

    Doesn't sound like a terrible price. Offer them $25,000 and see if they take it.

    Looks like a nice clean truck, I think 25 would be a decent price and you could put any fisher on there you want

    I went back and offered $25,300. NO DEAL - He stated $26,200 was bottom line, plus tax, title, and license - I walked. There is 17 months remaining on the 60 month power train warranty. Looking at new ones...

    I've been to several auctions with car dealership friends, and cherry trucks generally go through the bidding line for NADA retail prices. I'm thinking this guy is buried deep into this thing.

    Local Ford dealer advised to look for, and expect large upcoming price incentives in the $4500-$6500 range on or about the 4th of July weekend.

    Thank you unhcp,

    Wow - Those kind of price discounts are NOT being offered anywhere in Minnesota! I was just second guessing myself not buying the above used F-350 for $26,200. I would be money ahead flying out and buying new with bumper to bumper warranty - Very, very informative and helpful. My thanks to everyone on this great site!

    Will I owe "Whiffyspark" that steak, lobster, and beers? Let's see if he can make me live up to my word!

    I am serious though - Looking for new: FORD F-350 6.2 Gas Supercab 6.5 Short Box - or (2nd choice) Regular Cab (with new Boss V-XT 9'2" Steel).

    Click on sales flyers. They also come down on advertised prices some. Battlefield and tedbrittford also have some good deals once in a while

    Koons is the one that had extended cab diesels. Guess they sold them all a while ago

    He only has one plow truck left on site. And they want too much for it lol

    I would personally buy an extended cab. I can't stand single cabs anymore

    I agree Whiffyspark, I'm currently running an extended cab short box, and love it. I'm thinking a regular cab might be something I'll regret. Thank you much, your information is both valued and appreciated.

    I have too much junk for a single cab. Plus running a salter it's not wise to have a tool box in. And then if my kid/wife wants to come plowing? No room lol

    Think my next one might be a crew cab to be honest

    Those adds are great but if you look there is only one stock number listed at that price and it was probably already sold. The key to advertising like that is to get you into the dealership.
    The best thing to do would be an iternet search of dealer inventories in your area and see what thier prices are, plus you will start seeing alot of rebates on 14's as the 15's are rolling out. There are also several high volume dealerships out there that sell at deep discount and will drop ship a truck to you anywhere in the country.

    Use this guide http://www.commercialtrucktrader.com/research/tools/price-checker to find low, high and average pricing for the area you designate.

    Armed with that information you can find a LOCAL DEALER, establish a relationship with a salesman/service department, buy at a fair price, have local service from a dealership that wants your future business all without plane tickets, travel time and cost.

    Come out here to the east coast the average sales cost on a new F350 is $29K. save a grand over Minnesota? maybe, spend a grand saving a grand sure.
