    Well what is an 88 with a meyer plow looks to be a 7.5 and the truck has a Bump insert that looks pretty good. Truck is an xl with 80 K and the paint is SHOT.... not much left but it was green... Truck does not have a solid axle does have front leaf. tires are good no dents in body

    KBB shows about 2300 to 2800

    the window is asking 5200.......... what would you offer?

    i just paid $2200 for a rig in nearly exactly the same condition with a similar setup. the plow was in like new condition, but it didnt have a dump insert. it was also an 88 f-250 4x4 with crap paint.

    $5200?! Forget that. I think you could do alot better going after something in the newspaper from a private owner. That's assuming this is a dealer lot that the truck is on.

    That's way high for that truck. A 93 - 94 maybe. The big thing is all the stuff that can go wrong if it's been a plow truck very long. You have to look at the front axle u joints, transfer case, what's rusted out underneath,what's leaking. What's the front brake rotors look like? A Ford will run down the road with a lot of partial system failures and the new owner soon finds them.
    Hence how my truck got the name "The Big Red Drain"
