dont mean anything negavtive but $10k is about all i think its worth. those trucks are getting old, rotting etc, even if its nice now, you know in a few years it will be. 2wd, drawback, old 7.3, ehhh, can go either way. it is almost 15 years old

That's an idi turbo right? Not a powerstroke?
Probably 3500-4000 worth of plow and v box but the older 7.3 doesn't add too much value over the gas motor for the truck itself (good motor though).

yeh no powerstroke there. but still a pretty good (simple) engine.

Bluebook its worth about $5,000 with the plow. Which is reasonable. But I think if you find the right person you should be able to see 8-10 out of it.

It appears very nice.

The 2wd, and manual transmission are a couple of big value killers.

2wd is a killer for the truck but I would think the manual tranny would be benifical. That ZF unit is a lot nicer than an E4OD auto...

Biggest problem I see it parts. I had to replace a spindle knuckle on my 94 f250, and I had to get the part off ebay. No local or even semi local junk yards had anything. Considering age and that its plowed in the past, its only a matter of time before key suspension componets need to be replaced. If you can't get the parts easily or at all, then you've got a big problem!

The Manual Trans can give you a lower gear ratio. If it had a locker/or a posi rear end being a 2wd shouldn't be a problem.

Depending on your options I'd say $10000 to $9000 but if you see anything over $8500 consider it sold. Mason guys should pick it up, it'll last them about 5 years then it'll be junk.

The F-Superduty trucks mainly came with 5spd transmissions and they were never 4x4s. If that truck had a straight 11' mason dump it would be sold quickly in the Vancouver or lower B.C. market. A truck with a 8' box and backpack toolboxes don't sell as quick a 8 or 9 foot box is too short.

As for price I would have to say 10 grand. If it was a year newer with PSD power you could get 12 for it.

I'd say 10k, those things last forever, I still see a few Cintas water trucks like that around here. My friends uncle had one that he put 600k miles on w/o an overhaul, with only 54k miles, it should be worth a lot more than what KBB says.

i was offered 16,000 for this truck and they guy never sent the down payment off ebay. i spoke to ford today where i buy all my dump trucks. hes saying the truck its self is worth 9,000 to 10,000. hes saying the plow is worth 2,000 and the spreader box is worth 4,000. hes saying at low i should take 14,000 to 15,000. he broke it down like this if you had to buy a new 8' western plow like on my truck it would cost 5,000. then he said if you had to go buy a 2 yard stainless steal monroe spreader its going to cost you 8,000. so he basically cut everything in half and hes saying the truck is worth 14 to 15,000. very low miles on the truck and everything is hydrulauic from the spreader to the dump body nothing is electric. also there is a 40 gallon diesel tank in this truck in the back box to fill of anytype of machinery on the job sites get back to me guys let me know what you think about this

Why are you selling the truck ?

If its paid for keep it around you won't find anything else in the same condition. The newer trucks are not the greatest.

The old F-Superduty trucks are tough the drawback is the 16 inch rubber on them don't last long when your hauling heavier loads. The other drawback is the brakes are a little on the small side so your replacing the brake pads more often. I had 3 F-Superduy trucks first one was a 88 I paid 8 grand for 2nd was a truck I rebuilt had 6 grand into it and 3rd was a 95 I paid 15 grand for it.

You do that much snow clearing to buy a salt spreader ?

Out here on the West Coast rock salt is in short supply the highway maintenance contractors are barging 4000 tons from somewhere overseas. The last time I heard rock salt was 500 dollars a ton not cheap. You can't even buy rock salt from the big box stores like Home Depot or Rona. Ordered a skid of salt for work and it took 3 weeks to get it. Only the highways maintenance contractors do salt spreading its pretty hard to compete with them. Out west we only get 2 weeks of snow a year so local contractors with backhoes do the parking lots etc.

Keep advertising the truck you will find somebody that needs a 1.5 ton dump.

Couple Ritchie Bros auctions ago there was some slip in salt spreaders for 5 ton dumps in good shape not rusted out I think they were less than 5 years old sold for scrap price nobody wanted them.

I have to totally agree with Gravel on that. Last winter our 94 pull our 550 up hill dead weight when the fuel system went out on the 550. The only thing that damage the SuperDuty was a original radiator hose, which the pulley hit and worn through.

The only downside to that 5spd is if you gear it low like ours is makes you wish you had a 6th gear cause ours is lucky to hit 65 going down hill on the freeway, and your not going to win any races with it. It was used for 2 years as a logging truck in Upper Michigan and they got rid of it because it didn't have outriggers on it.

I've talked to another company around here and they got a one as well(Central Services). The owner put it right out and his words where "It just won't die"

My 95 F-Superduty has 4:63s so the road speed was better than the one F-Superduty I had with 5:13s the speed was topped out at 62 mph. The things I like about my 03 F-450 I have now is the 19.5 rubber and larger brakes and the ZF 6spd is a nice transmission. I also gotten used to the larger Superduty cab on the 99 and newer trucks.
