    Well I have never been a Ford man but I was in the need for a new truck and found this one sitting on the lot...I watched it for a while and decided to check it out.It came with an 8 foot Myers and a new pump.

    Nice truck Larry, my brother in law has one just like that. Is it a diesel? can't see the door too well.

    I'm a chevy guy, always have been, race chevys and all but never cared for a ford, then i saw my truck, 96 f250 with powerstroke got it super cheap and have no complaints, you should like the truck, chevy and ford build killer trucks.

    KC2006--Not a diesel...Thanks for the compliment on the truck.

    Its a 2002 and has 35,000 miles on it loaded with everything but leather.The story behind the truck is the dealership took it in on trade in the fall last year and sold it in the winter...Just like everybody else the guy that bought it thought it would be easy to start a plow business...well the repo man got him so the dealer buys it back at the auction because its still winter and they know the history of the truck.So some time in late Feb. the truck comes back to the lot priced at like $23,995 or $24,995.The guy must have known he was about to lose it because he switched the pump's and put something on it that leaked and would barely even lift the plow.so the put a new one on and it sat there for a while and I pick it up for $21,500.
