FS: 1997 F350 CC 4x4 7.3L Dualie

Thought I'd offer this to yall before I bother cleaning it up and putting it on ebay
1997 Ford F350
Crew Cab
7.3L Diesel
long bed
manual transmission
Dualie
hide-a-ball gooseneck hitch
~212,000

We bought this truck new and it's served us well. It's been on backup reserve for the last 2 years (we still run it around ever 2 weeks so it's not in bad shape)
We also in the last year (in preperation to selling it) have spent $5500-6000 fixing up things that wern't up to par i which include but not limited to:

new injectors, new starter, front tie rod, various bushings, injector pump, harness, and have had the steering column rebuilt (new bearings and such), interior door handles (all our of late 90s fords have gone through these)

There is also an metal ambulance style bed cover that will be for the taking if the new owner wants it.

The truck runs great and is safe and ready for use, I had it inspected for the great state of NC today. It has been used as a service truck most of it lift and did only 2 years of "hauling" so it'll have many years left of great service. We've moved to cabovers exclusively and have few employes that can drvie a manual so it serves no purpose to me.

I'd like to get $7000 for the truck, I'll be happy to accept credit cards for the amount or certified/cleared check.

I'll be willing to trade as well but will need $4k payment minimum + trade

and let me reiterate... this is a great souther rust free truck, no plowing.
we've been using it as a "backup" for our maint division but even there we're not getting the use out of it it to justify the taxes. (big problem is one of the young ladies that works on that crews can't reach the pedals far enough to throw the clutch.

They did ship duallies, but I do not think 4x4 was available until '99. Perfectly acceptable to add the rear wheels.
