Hi all

I just joined this forum, and also bought the commercial info, tool listed on this site

but my question is that i am looking at 2 trucks

one is a 1999 F-350 turbo diesel, 107k, with a quick mount diamond plow, and a flat bed utility body, nice truck for 10k

or another 1999 f250 with a full side bed for 12k

the only difference between the 2 is that the one truck, the 12k truck is in my state and has a bed

the f350 is about 250 miles away and has a flat bed on the back, but a bed could be put on

just looking for an opion

id buy the F350 if its been well maintained. It has a plow, and you could add sides to the flat bed if you need them, its a bigger and better truck. Plus 107K is low miles for a 99

Jump on the diesel.:clapping: It's a great deal as long as it's not beat up. :hammerhead:

thanks guys

i had an inspection company do a pre-sale look over of the truck

they said it ran great, no smoke on startup

i figured i could always add a bed

my advice, get the 350, its a larger truck, but if you need that extra hauling ability, you'll be glad its there. besides, the flatbed is more likely wider than a regular truck bed, which gives you extra space to carry stuff on if need be.

My advice, if you get the 250 you'll wish you had the 350! I have a 350 and it is great paid a little more but was well worth it and I have a 5.4 not the powerstroke so you will like it more than I like mine!
