    My uncle just bought a 2000 Chevy 3500 4x4,2-3 yd dump,9ft Western straight blade,4.10,locking differential,underbody toolboxes on both sides,6.5 turbo diesel,auto,A/c.For 33000 brand new.It is a 12000GVWR,which i think is a little heavier duty than the Ford.I know the powerstroke has more power,the 6.5 is 215hp/430 ft lbs.It does have much more power than the 99 and older ones that were only 190hp/385.He has a 2 yd airflow stainless spreader in it,and it handles it great.

    It isn't a bad price, but it isn't super great. My advice is you can get it for 28,500 and ya like the truck go for it.

    BTW it was the powerstrokes prior to 99 with the 190 HP. Also superduty C&Cs have a 12500 GVW.

    Only here is some food for thought. After specing an F 350 C&C much like yours, you should be able to find a Brand New truck just like it for 28,000 or less with a few other bells. Just be adviced you will still need to add a body and plow, so your total cost will be higher. However this may be something to think about.

    That same truck/plow new would have cost you about 36K.

    I'm not in the market for a new truck yet, but I do like to look. I stopped in at a Ford dealer a couple of weeks ago, to look at cab chassis. They had a new F450 4x4, V10, auto, dually, in XL trim for $31k and some change. Didn't think that was too bad of a price.

    I have heard also that the new fords with the power stroke should not have a plow on them if they are super of crew cab, seems with the long frame when you get the plow pushing alot of snow or up to a curb, the front and rear windows blow out because of the twisting frame. Also a friend of mine plows the a new 350 dually and has torn both rear fender wells off. He says the power stroke plows nicely.

    Well just figue out what a new one would be probably around $32K for the truck $4-5K for the dump $3,200 for the plow.So i would figure about $3,500 $4,500 for depriation on it .That's the way i try to look at the cost of a used truck plus how the condition of it is.And we all like to pay less than what it actully cost anyway.
