    I have a chance to buy a 1991 Ford F250. Its a Regular cab, 4x4, with a 5.0L motor and a 5 speed tranny. The truck has 86000 miles. The body is typical (rust around the fenders and the rockers). The guy I would buy it from, said he is repainting it son and will replace all the rusted spots with metal (not bondo). Heres my question: How would the truck perform plowing and is $2600 a good price? There is one major flaw I found off the bat... the driver floor board is rusted through... its about a 6x6 inch hole... but I can just tell him to fix that while hes welding up the body.

    I have pics. on my phone but I don't know how to get them onto the computer....

    Unless you are plowing alot of long drives or open lots the clutch is a bad choice. The wear and tear on the clutch and your leg are bad. I only plow with an AT. JMO
