    Selling my 96 Ford I've had for about 4 years now. It's been an absolute great truck. I've driven it to NewYork, Florida, Upper Michigan, and everywhere in between. It has high mileage (316k) for the day to day guys but for those who are a fan of the 7.3 it's really not that high of mileage. Originally it came from a toter (hauled RVs over the road) so that's where the mileage came from. I bought it with 285k on it and used it for lawncare and plowing the last 30k miles. The plow has only been on for 3 seasons and realistically only plowed about 4hrs per storm with it. Below is a list of parts and repairs done to the truck.

    When purchased at 285k miles.
    Upper/Lower ball joints
    Tie rods
    New front leaf springs
    Calipers pads and rotors (could use pads now)
    IDM module
    glow plugs
    Fuel pump (mechanical lift pump)
    New Cooper tires
    Cat Delete
    3" downpipe installed

    Done within last 10k miles
    Dual optima yellow top batteries
    High torque starter
    Pillar gauges installed (tranny,boost,egt)
    Water pump
    Fan Clutch
    Exhaust backpressure sensor
    Coolant temp sensor
    Oil temp sensor
    Rear U-joint
    Electronic speed sensor

    Done within last 1k miles (last month)
    Jasper 3yr/36k mile tranny (transferrable) $3k
    New Rear leaf springs (cracked top spring so replaced all new both sides

    Also has timbrens front and back. Gooseneck rollover hitch. Rhino lined bed including over the rail. Had some rust at the wheel wells so I had that repaired and the wheel wells, fenders, rockers, and inside/outside doorjams including kick plates all rhino lined. Truck was also repainted last summer professionally and new badging installed.

    Truck is in overall great condition. Interior is clean. Driver's seat is worn but not torn. Has Alpine CD player. Air works great. Decals will come off upon completion of sale. I will have them removed and the truck buffed. Truck cleans up almost like new. Obviously it has 300k miles and is 14yrs old but it's still a hell of a truck. Starts on first sometimes second attempt even while unplugged all winter. The tranny alone costs $3k and $575 in rear springs just within the last month. The tranny wasn't fried but it got hot and I didn't want to chance being left out in a storm while plowing. I could have patched alot of these fixes but when it needed repairs it got done right.

    Truck could use
    Rear brake job
    Speedo cable lube. (bounces around up at 70mph)

    Plow is an 8' MMI w/ cutting edge 2 seasons old. Has Intensifier lights and Fishstick controller and Pro wings. Still used daily.
    Dump insert does not come w/ the truck but it can be arranged.

    PM or email with questions.

    This is a picture from a parade last summer and a front shot while in the shop to show the plow.

    Yes it does. That's why I put the Timbrens up there. Drops about 1" w/ the plow.
