It's in great shape for the year. That body style is my favorite, but I have a 06 now.

That is exactly my dream truck. I would get rid of my super duty in a heartbeat to get a truck like that. Probably a little high priced with those miles though. My buddy just bought one with 150k in almost a good of shape for $7500.

I'm not a big fan of that body style, but that sure is one great looking truck. It's tough to keep trucks looking that clean up here with the harsh winters and all.

Man. If that were an F350, that would be my dream truck. The F250 is nice, but fully loaded with a crew, you'd be limited on the weight in the bed.

If that truck was around here and a lower price, I would sell my truck and buy it in an instant. I would love to have that body style.

Not much difference between a F-350 crew and a F-250 crew.

Too bad it has the ugly mirrors on it.

The old OBS trucks are hard to find most of them here have orange cancer the frame is rusted out.

awesome truck, my bros friend has a 95 i believe, same config, he bought it pretty beat up for like 8K, had to replace fuel tank cause of rust, rear spring hangers cause of rust, rebuild the injectors and a bunch of other issues and now the trucks not running right.

higher gvwr= more payload gravel rat, c'mon thought you would know that one.

yes we all know that 250's and 350's are basically the same truck. but their rear ends have higher gawr and different load springs. my 350 srw has an 11500 gvwr where the highest gvwr a 250 has is 10000 i believe. front ends can have the same max fgawr= 6000lbs. between the two models.

No way you could get a 350 crew cab short bed in that body, unless you do the D 60 swap yourself. As I remember from the single wheel 97 F350 I had, it had the same rear axle rating as my 96 250, it was the front axle rating that was higher, solid front on the 350, Twin I beam on the 250. I think that was the case, not 100% sure. I think my 250 has an 8800 gvw, and the 350 single wheel was like low 9's maybe.

7-8k at most, no matter what it is you still have a truck with 180k on it. you have 70k miles of life left, but 120-150k left if your lucky, i wouldnt pay 13k for a truck that i'd get 150k out of if i was lucky.

Good looking truck. It's funny how you can tell it's a Texas truck without seeing the tag. All you have to look for is oversized aftermarket steel bumpers or a custom headache rack.

that truck still has at least another 150k in it. Our 96 has 240k miles now and has yet to give us any troubles. But still not worth no 13k tho. Id probably pay 7k for it.

I got a mint 97 F250 extra cab Diesel this past February with only 64K original miles on it and absolutely babied all its life. A trailer shop owner nearby told me about it as he knew the owner from new. This thing is just great on fuel for a fullsize.


I was at the lumber yard on Monday and parked right next to a 2007 F150 King ranch and whilst loading got chatting with the owner. I have a fairly successful business going and was chatting to him about it and he mentions "why am I driving such an old truck for a guy doing well"
Answered, Trucks are the biggest waste of money when it comes to payments and depreciation and also the abuse they get in the trades makes owning a new vehicle madness.
Plus its paid for, Cost me $9500 CDN which was a one shot payment.
He is paying $950 per month for his plus about $75 every few days for fuel, and the moment he signed the lease he took a twenty grand hit.
I love my truck:laugh:

I was just looking through an auto trader magazine the other day and was looking at some of the diesel trucks in there, the prices are just out of this world. There were 8-9 year old diesels with 100k on them for like $20,000 and they were only 3/4 ton trucks.
