    I just bought a 1996 Ford F350 4x4, a brand new 20' enclosed trailer, and a new 18' steel bed car hauler, and Kubota bx24 tractor with front end loader and backhoe. :dizzy:

    It's so if you haul a car you can open the door and then you are able to open your car door also. I like it because it gives you a little more air circulation when your in the trailer on those hot summer days.

    That is a CLEAN truck. Which engine does it have? I've got a 96 250 PSD that same color, extended cab, but it's starting to rust on the bed a little.

    Thanks stroker. It has 7.5 ltr. 460. I bought it from a friend of mine who takes very good care of his vehicles. It only has 71000 actual miles on it.

    The truck looks well maintained. How much was the open trailer?

    you can also use the side door for filling equipment in the trailer.

    Wow, those are some nice trailers and I LOVE that truck. Best bodystyle ever made. Congrats! What size tires are on the truck? They look good.

    dido, that truck is sweetest model they ever made. Good luck with it, i think i would shell out some cash for that truck. That 460 has some serious power though, it sucks gas. In like 93, the stock 7.3, with no turbo on it had less torque and horsepower then the 460. Good luck with it, I love it
