    Looks like a great truck...I've got an 04 psd.

    I wouldn't want to plow with all that crap on the back though.

    That would be sweet work truck. you get used to not being able to see behind you, just make sure you got some nice worklights back there.

    I wouldnt get a 6.0 if I were you, the reason ford is making their own engine in 2010 (the scorpion) is because navistar is having problems with the warranty on the 6.0 because it's so bad. Some guys have perfect 6.0's but alot of them are not good. They're by far the worst diesel engine ford has made. Now, this is coming from someone who's never owned one, I've done alot of research on them but never owned one. just what i've learned.

    Once head gaskets and turbo issues are fixed right, they're good motors. Seems like a good deal if you could get into it for $15k or so.

    Looks like a pretty nice truck. I think it would be worth almost what they are asking. You could most likely sell the box off the back for a couple grand, right?

    That tool box is worth a mint! For us plow guys it is worth F*** all. Trade in for a regular box and a few extras I think you will be :D. $15 500 is good but that utility is still worth at least $4 500 and that is cheap at that.. JMO.tymusic

    thats a good truck for the price.. how's the interior? (options).. i know i love my cd player when im plowing.. as for the 6.0 once they go through and replace the trubo and head gaskets you just have the lovely egr to worry about.. its got lots of power and i feel is a great engine.. the egr is only a minor thing (just keep it stock) i also run a ctane booster in mine (as per the dealer)
    id go for it if i was you

    2004 is the worst year for 6.0Ls, once my buddies hit 50k he's had nothing but problems, its a F550 dump.

    turbo, and head gaskets were already done when minuteman took delivery, didnt need to be but apparently ford paid for there techs to do it.

    biggest problem with the 6.0 is when guys buy tuners the heads cant handle the extra 120 hp.

    i pick it up on Wednesday wesport:drinkup::salute:

    niec congratulations.. was it at minuteman?
    just dont baby it and your egr will be fine (thats what my ford dealer told me) and also run the powerservice diesle kleen+ fuel supplement it will help keep it from gunking the egr up.
