    I have an opportunity to purchase a 95 f350 power stroke dump with the 7.3 engine for $5500. It has 90k on it. Dump is great condition, underneath is min.rust Its a stick shift with a 9ft Fisher plow. Only down side I can see with the truck is the cab corners are rusted ,and patched. Seems the fenders are rusty as well! I'd think at this price its worth the hassle of the rust issue....thinking i'd make money with clean ups in the fall ,and plowing in winter......any thoughts on price, or rust issue?!

    i got a 97 dump like your looking at. there good trucks, just make sure the oil pan is good and the front radiator support isnt rotted out. seems like a good price to me if its indecent shape.

    I buy trucks all over the us, usually the south but I look all over. I really like '97 OSB.
    Just woundering.

    Well, the 7.3 is a great motor. Just look for the few common things that the other guys mentioned... If those are clear, than I would say it sounds like a great deal!
