    I'm looking at a 2001 F-250 XLT Supercab short bed w/6.8 V10. Was used by a local contractor as his transportation, not really a work truck..(according to the salesman). It is clean with 34K on it. They want $24.4 K for it which includes a new Fisher V plow. How does that sound? I can get a brand new (non-supercab) F-350XLT reg cab w/ same plow and engine for around 30K + tax and such. Any ideas if this used truck is a good play? Or would you go with the shiny new one? I figure the V10 will suck as much gas as the V8 plus give me some more power...wadda think?..........thanks

    I would buy the new one --I just bought a new 2004 xlt
    F350 --and would say 30,000 is a good deal with a plow-
    If your going to plow alot make sure they're not trying
    to upfit the truck with a light duty plow.

    sorry about the light duty comment---I re read your post
    and saw they were offering the v with the new one also.
    thats an awesome deal for 30,000 --and a plowing
    machine! why buy a truck that has been used for three
    years unless you really want a xcab? I got a reg cab
    and love it but I also have an expedition so I didn't
    feel the need for an xcab -- I like the truck so much
    I think I'm going to sell the expedition because I haven't
    been driving it. good luck!
