I'am looking for a 99-2002 F-450 but I'am one heck of a time trying to find one. Western Canada (B.C. Alberta) is having a building boom and I guess everybody is buying up trucks I looked at the prices of new F-450s and I can't justify the 46,000 (Cnd)dollar price tag for a cab and chassis The F-450s I have found are V-10 power I really don't want a V-10 they burn too much fuel. What I'am looking for is a F-450 4x4 165 regular cab diesel 5 or 6spd cab and chassis. I see a few 2003 F-450 4x4s you know why they are forsale they have the first try Oh No 6.0 litres I would like to stick with a 7.3 PSD. I would even go for a 2wd F-450 and stick a locker in the diff or a true trac limited slip. Having 4wheeldrive would be nice but I don't know if its worth it in a F-450 they are so heavy they sink before the front wheels pull the rear wheels out of the hole they dug. Do you guys think its worth buying a 2005-2006 F-450 for 46,000 dollars I could buy a good used tandem axle dump that makes more money. I'am trying to keep in the landscaping side of things not full on excavation all I want to do is haul topsoil and do clean up work.
