    I bought a 92 F-350 today for a 2nd spray truck.It has a Reading classic utility body on it in good shape.Does the utlity body have any value?
    Whats a reasonable price for a used bed or a new flat bed for this truck?

    Good used bed with tail gates on and only needing paint sell for around $550 here. You could probably trade the utility body even up for a reg bed as they seem to have more value but the middle man will want to make his share on it.

    Thanks Lawn Pro.

    Any quirks on a 92 F-350 5.4 gasser I should know about? I'm having a little bit of buy remorse. Seems to good of a deal to be right.

    '92 F-350's didn't have the 5.4L......they had the 5.8L. If you start to have fuel system problems the FIRST thing you should check is the Fuel Pressure Regulator. They are usually the culprit of Ford multiport EFI troubles. Also I'd change the fuel filter right off, the injectors do not like any trash in the lines. I had to replace 3 injectors in mine last summer.

    A truck in that range would go for 6000-7000 around here depending on mileage and condition.

    The utility body would bring $1500 by itself around here.

    180k miles on it. It runs very well It needs brakes all around the guy bought a new F-250 and didn't trade it. Tranny seems good, motor is quiet. No leaks other than the normal valve cover leak. $900

    OK, with 180,000 I'd shoot for $5500 if I were you.

    What's the $900 for?

    When you replace the valve cover gasket, use a rubber gasket instead of cork. Cork is a very poor gasket maker.

    $900 for the truck.
    HE had advertised it for $1800 and got zero calls
