    I need to add an additional construction/ plow truck. What are your thoughts on this truck?

    2002
    4wd
    84,000 miles
    5.4l v8
    brand new tires
    air suspension in back

    It has service records from new. 1 owner.

    It comes with a boss Rt3 straight blade plow

    they are asking $9,000.

    I am not a huge fan of the silver. But since it comes with a plow I am tempted to pick this truck up.

    Any idea of what I could sell the plow for tomorrow? Has anyone had one of these 5.4l v8 trucks?

    I would imagine that plow would run 5k new and it looks like it hardly plowed snow. So 3000ish?

    A new western plow is $6250 with tax installed. Priced this morning so that plow should bring $2500-$3500. $3000 or better right now since everybody is in the market before winter sets in

    5.4L is a good mower. I would buy it. Never buy the 6.8L V10. Biggest pile of crap ever made.

    I have run v10 and all have been biggest pile of crap I have driven reliability is horrible. No point in the v10. Get a diesel is more powerful, reliable, and way better mpg. If may be similar motor but far from same motor.
