    Couldn't pass up this deal! Truck came up for sealed bid at a local township. Truck has literally BARELY been used. 2002 F450 4x4 7.3 diesel. Truck has 85k original miles. They literally have every receipt and maintenance slip on this thing and its mint. They bought it brand new, and they've only used the truck for running errands. The plow has literally been used ONCE and the sander has never been used. It has central hydraulics for the dump and the sander (its a replacement tailgate sander). Plow is a Boss 8.2 V. My other truck has a Hiniker V, so I'm excited to see the difference between the two and see which I like better

    So all I need to do is get the box repainted and my graphics on the truck and its ready for work!

    Just one picture for now!

    Looks like a real clean truck. Im really interested in which plow you thinks better.

    The boss is heavier, no doubt, so I think they'll be nice for backdragging (I'm not happy with how the Hiniker backdrags). My #1 complaint about the Hiniker has been the mounting system. You need to push into something to get it to fully engage when hooking up. The Boss looks to be a better, quicker mounting system.

    Sweet truck, never seen a town around my parts get rid of a truck in that good of shape, they don't get pulled off the street until they can't make it back on the street on there own. Great find and good luck

    nice looking truck you should see how much a boss dealer would give you for that plow and trade it in for the 9'2" v its weird they put an 8 on it around here im pritty sure the town wont have any 1 ton without a 9 foot plow

    Paid $17k for the whole package. Similar trucks around here are selling at about $25k.

    It is a 9'2" V.

    You wouldn't believe it, but all they did was buy a new 2011 F450. Equipped identical. $65k out the door with all of the equipment. My tax dollars hard at work.
