    Looking at buying a 2000 F350 pickup.

    2000 Ford F350 XL
    40K miles, 8' bed, regular cab
    Never Plowed, No AC
    Needs a new 8' bed
    Fleet vehicle
    No

    I'm thinking of purchasing this and installing a 2 month old dump insert for another $2800. The truck was fleet maintained and has no problems except AC doesnt work as far as I know. I'm going to have a mechanic look it over.

    For $4000 does this sound like a smart choice??

    whats wrong with the bed? If its just dents who cares its a wt. Slap an insert in it and get some high sides on there and be done.

    Oh and btw this 350 is SRW right?

    With that truck I wouldn't even mess with a new bed, paint it white and be done. That truck reminds me of a friends 99' ex forest service F250, beat to hell with god knows how many miles that he found for $1500. He drove it in a lake hydrolocked the engine fixed it and sold it for 3k.
