    5.4 V8 w/5-spd stick. Original owner. 105,000 miles, mostly highway.
    XLT trim includes AC, tilt, PW, PDL, alloy wheels, etc. Has a heavy-duty trailer hitch and brake controller. Recently replaced exhaust from cat back ($450), battery, plugs, etc. Ball joints and brakes were done earlier. Oil was changed every 3000 miles since new. It runs like new, with no issues. It should be good for another 100,000, like my previous trucks.
    The paint is original, and there has never been any bodywork, no accidents and no rust anywhere. There are scratches and dings from being on job sites. Looks great from 10 feet, as they say.
    The 5-speed is a ZF unit used in larger trucks. If you aren't in city traffic all day, it is stronger and more useful than an automatic. The V8 will pull from 1000 RPM in any gear without a stumble, and you can shift up or down when YOU want to.
    The plow is an 8' MM1 that was installed by a Fisher dealer last fall, and used on one small parking lot and two driveways. Previous owner was a homeowner who used it on one dirt driveway. All questionable parts were replaced, including the circuit board on the Fishtik at $177.
    MPG is 12-14 around town and up to 16 highway. Never see less than 10, even towing a big box trailer. It does a lot of work for the money, with no strain. The F350 will carry 1000 lbs. more that an F250, and more than any diesel Ford. It can handle a pallet of pavers, a sander or an EZ dumper, although I haven't done any of that. With higher sides on the bed it will carry 5 yards of mulch or clippings. Biggest thing it ever towed was a Bobcat 331 excavator about a mile from one site to another. No problem.
    This is a workhorse that will make money year round, carry six guys or the family with kid seats in the back. Priced way below bluebook at $8900 with a full tank (38 gallons). The toolbox is not included.

    Hey, folks, it's still for sale. This truck was over $30,000 new, and still does everything as well as it did on day one. Only plowed this past winter, and not very much. Would make a great second truck for a guy with a half-ton or for a second crew. Questions?

    Meadowbrook - Doubtful. What do you want to trade?
    kps2389 - Conn. River Valley near Springfield and Amherst. About 5 miles from Exit 5 on Mass. Pike. Could meet you near another exit.
    Sorry about the delay, guys. Haven't been on line. I've been crazy busy.

    kps2389 - I took a quick look at your avatar and assumed you were in the Boston area. Now I see your location. I'm also close to I91, and could meet you in CT if you want.

    A couple more pictures. With the back seat folded up, I can keep a lot of tools dry and secure inside the cab. The Fisher plow has the typical surface rust around the edges, but it has so little use that the paint is still on the springs.
