Its a 2001 F250 5.4 Gasser 115k miles....Dealer is doing the whole front end (ball joints wheel bearings, tie rods, and a caliper) before I get it. I'm gonna have to put tires on it at some point soon, but I think I have a set laying around the shop with will fit. The truck isnt in too bad of shape, it will be a good truck for my lawn crew. It'll get a dump insert in it sometime soon also. And I didn't pay near what the price on the windshield says either

All signs point to 99-02 gas job but it still looks like a solid deal for the price

Awesome! If you got that for around 5 thats
Pretty decent deal! If you upgrade the rear suspension you will be able to haul more than the truck could ever handle

Little more than that but close. Got stuck with paying sales tax because it came from a dealer, but probably came out ahead in the end since they are absorbing the cost of having the front end done.

should give him an extra hundo to lift/level the front a bit....put a plow on it as is and it will probably leave the ground!

Sucks you got the xl, i HATE that front end package more than any other out there.

its parked on a hill in that pic so it looks worse than it is. we'll see what it looks like when theres a plow hanging off of it. If it was my personal truck, I would not have bought an XL but its just going to be a work truck that the guys are going to drive so it'll be fine for that. I'm not going to paint it, just letter it up the same as my other ones and roll with it.

Yeah those and the mirrors are the first things to go. If the steel wheels underneath are in ok shape I'll sandblast them and paint them gray like they are supposed to be or I'll get the Ford wheel covers that its supposed to have.
