It was never used for snow removal.

Inside is good. Leather is "worn" where you get in and slide across. Has a slight tear in it. Other then that it just needs a cleaning.

Nice truck! those year Ford's look bad ass with a little bit bigger tire's on them. Would make a great plow truck. your price is definitely not out of line!

Oh yeah, its also got a backpack sprayer rack on it that is not shown in the picture.

Let me know KS, no rush on my side though so take your time.

A solid frame is the difference between $2500 and $5000, but if it wasn't plowed, well worth the price!

Im glad you guys agree with me. I was a little leary on what to ask but I seem to be right on the mark.

I liked those mid to late 90s trucks also. They just had a "dont mess with me" look to them.

I was heart broken when they ended that body style. Was the best looking Ford I thought. Now the newer look has kinda grown on me. I had a 97 f250 hd 4x4 xlt. Loved that truck. Sold it in December 07 with 186 on it and it still ran real good.

Truck is still in good shape and nice looking for its age thats for sure. You can probably get close to 5k for it. i just bought a used truck last month, and you should see what they want for some of these used trucks.

wow, you are really going to give the truck away, here in RI, that thing is worth and easy 7k+, I just sold a 97 regular cab XLT powerstroke, auto with 100K nice condition for 11K, any who, good luck

I use almost all Powerstrokes, so i dunno what a gasser would be worth really. But I can tell you, that is one of the cleanest old body style Ford's I have seen in a long time in this area. I wouldn't think you'd have any trouble getting that price out of it.

I have a 94 f250 with that 5.8L in it. Runs real good and is pretty good on fuel. From the pictures, its worth $4000-$4500 I'd say!

I'd still like to see some more pics, but am pretty sure I want it. Would you meet in, say Emporia, for $4750? Need to get my truck sold first, will put it in the newspaper here this week.

Yea, I just thought about your truck today. I am kinda thinking that it may be a good truck for my personal truck for a couple years, then become my mowing truck when I go full time.
