    Not even close. The truck is 12yrs. old. Yes it's in good shape and miles aren't bad for the year but I'd be reluctant to pay $10k. Especially with diesel at $4 per gallon. I love diesels, but do yourself a favor and buy gas.

    NO WAY!! $8-9k at most, even in that condition. And diesel is pricy.

    I'd give 15K for that truck in a heartbeat. you guys must not realize how rare those pickups are. A dealer buddy of mine just sold a 97 like that, not a good of shape with 198K for $9500. I've been looking for a truck like that forever, I'd get rid of my super duty so fast to get a truck like that. There was another one i just saw sell for 11,500 with 211k. Those trucks are hot. If you don't buy that I would like to get some contact info for it.

    Man that is one gorgeous truck! but yeh still a little high since its so old. I bought my 97 f-250 back in 2001 for 15,900...I would give at most 11,000 for it. Very good lookin truck tho. Id kill for one of those crew cab short beds. they didnt make very many of em.

    That is a little on the high side but it is a clean truck. You can never tell by pictures you see it in person then make the judgement.

    Crew cabs are not really rare in B.C. the loggers buy thousands of them. At a auction coming next month there will be something like 30 F-350 crewcabs ranging from 99 to 2004 and half of them are diesels.

    That truck posted if I was in the market I would pay 13 at most.

    Oh ya diesel fuel here is 4.55 dollars a gallon so quit squaking about paying 4 dollars a gallon. This summer it should be up to 5 dollars.

    You could probably find a late model ford gasser for less than that with much lower miles. I paid right around 9k for my 2000 SD PS dually with 94k on it and it was just as clean as that. I saw the titel to thread and immediately thought it was a rip off. No matter how good it looks, it still has 128k on it and is 12 y/o. If you are stuck on that body style look around more. I see tons of those for sale around here.

    i guess i must be nuts or rich cuz i would give over $20,000 for that truck. you cant find em like that and if u are lucky to find one dont worry about the price think about the truck. its one of the most bullet proof trucks out thier will drive an easy 300,000 miles. if i had the money i would buy that in a heart beat. oh and diesel is now $4.67 here going up by the minute, i will continue to drive diesel trucks and count my losses i just love the power:cool2:
