Got a great deal as ISU was unloading it last spring when they replaced it with a new F-550 (which I want) with 4wd and a replacement tailgate salt spreader. I think new they paid 50k for the 550.
they paid a lot more then 50k for a truck up fitted like that. yah 2wd sucks but with weight in the bed you'll be fine...with that setup you should try and sub for your town plowing or sub for a guy with some large commercial lots, you should be able to pull in between $100-120 an hour with the salter and 10' plow.
the chevys didnt offer 4x4 in their HD 3500s until I believe 02/03??
