The real problem with the truck is the red frame. I would paint the frame black and the cab green but one would never get all the little spots painted up around the engine and trans unless you did a total tear down.

You might not beable to license it for that much weight in your state most single axles here are maxed at 35,000lbs.

If you think its going to work for your needs go for it. The truck has a good engine low miles it seems like it a heavier spec'ed truck and its a good brand.

alot better buy then 30k for a used to death c7500 26k gvw juice brake truck ehh? that salter is worth 3k and the plow 4k.

i was on the edge of buying the c7500 and installing a 4k dollar v-plow on it and then looking for a salter. i was just worried about buying a chevy kodiak when the line is ending.

i know what you guys do is different than what I do but you could never give me one of those Fords I would sell it asap! The 350 to 550 work trucks (not really) have killed my profit margin worse than a bad employee.

The F Series Fords above the 550 are not that good. The last good Ford medium duty trucks were the Louisvilles. The L-8000 L-9000 LN LT LNT were all good series trucks.

Why not an isuzu F series? I would love one but I think it may be overkill for my line of work. If that is possible.
