    It's your lucky day! I've got a 00 F350 with a Fisher plow for sale on the next page here, and I can get it delivered to MI. It's a good, solid rig that only plowed one season. The 350 will carry 1000 lbs. more in the bed than the F250, and otherwise it's the same truck.

    Thanks for the replies, guys.
    1. The asking price is in the original listing - $8900, which is less than any other similar trucks I've seen.
    2. Once you get used to plowing with a stick shift, it has a lot of advantages. Also, they are tougher than automatics. Replacing an auto transmission can eat up a lot of your plowing $, and I've seen plenty of them get smoked plowing snow.
    This is probably a good time to be shopping. Lots of trucks for sale. Good luck with your search.
