    I took the plung and joined the powersmoke family. I bought a 2006 f350 with 28,000 miles and in mint condition. Its a 1 owner truck, registered personally before. The interior is mint, the body is mint, tires and brakes are brand new, theres no rust anywhere. Its got the the factory aux switches and brake controller, which in my mind is worth a lot. Its one of the cleanest trucks that ive looked at over the past 6 months or so.

    As some of you know ive been looking for a dump for a while now. Mostly everything i looked at was junk, all beat up and rusty bodies. Or the guys owed more money on the title than the truck was worth and they all needed me to front the money for the title, i dont do stuff like that.

    This truck was listed forsale back in Dec for $32,000, last month they dropped the price to $24,000 and thats when i went to look at it, made them an offer significantly lower than the sticker price, they said "no cant do it", so i politely left and drove back home. Its been about 4 weeks since i looked at it and the dealer called a couple times to see if i was still interested and i told him yes, but not for his price. So a few days ago the dealer calls and says they wanna sell the truck to me...for my price. And the rest is history.

    These pics are of it on the lot, ill get some of it in my yard once i wash the salt off.

    That looks like a real nice truck. Sounds like you got a good deal on it. What kind of plow are you putting on there?

    Thanks, Actually i bought one cuz my buddy Cre had one. :cool:

    I told them if they wanted the truck off the lot they would have to pay me ;)

    its the nicest truck i looked at, the 13kGVW is a benefit over the GM's plus the ford front end will hold a large red Boss blade better. the Chevy 3500 likes doing nose dives.

    Thanks man, Nothing this year, more than likely a 9'2 VXT for next year.

    me and a friend got into a fight about this. he insists that chevy and gmc's do not squat under a load. I got they squat without a load on them lol. I dont care if it is a 1500, 2500, and 3500 they all do. atleast fords dont and they can hold a lot more weight and take a lot more stress on the front end.

    The Boss dealer here in town has the same truck (gasser though) and has a 9'2" VXT on it and it looks real sharp. He said it plows real nice too.

    You got a good deal there on a great truck. Congrats! Be sure to show pics of the VXT when you get it. Shop around this spring, you'll probably be able to find a much better deal in the spring rather than waiting for next fall.
