    not with a gas engine. you can get a brand new F250 for damn near under $30,000 right now

    I'm actually selling the same truck but a lariat (leather, etc) for under $9k..

    So I'd say it's a little high.

    The way the market is, that price needs to come down a bit. You can score a gas 250 with 75000 or so for right about 10-12.

    Are those snow plow mount points on the front of it? You can only see 'em in the 3rd pic. If so, you couldn't give it to me.

    Yea that is wayyyy too hight for a that crap gas V8. Find a 7.3 power stroke, you will not be disappointed. mine has 250K on it and she still is kickin it! I just bought a 99 f350 with a 8"6 boss straight plow and dump box for 11,500. It has the gas drinkin V10 in it, that is the only down fall.

    1. Dont buy that truck
    2. Price is too high
    3. you wont be pushing much snow with that 5.4 Triton V8 let alone pulling a large trailer
    4. Find a diesel or at your last resort a V10!

    I agree..... I used to own a f-250 with the 5.4 v8. Not enough power for such a big truck. Had trouble towing heaving loads up hills with it. I wound up trading it for a diesel.

    Most anything listed in that Auto Trader is always high,
    the whole bunch of vehicles listed in there is,
    always has been, likely always will be.
