    I have decided to look for a '99-'03 7.3L Powerstroke. I know everyone will say don't go diesel it costs more than gas now and isnt worth it. I am aware of the fact that they are more expensive to own, and will have no problem $ wise being able to fill it up when it needs it, and even to cover any major repairs without draining my bank account . Not to mention I will use it for many other things besides landscaping. So as of right now I am definatley ready to take a trip down diesel alley in the next couple of weeks .

    Here is my #1 prospect as of right now:
    1999 Ford Super Duty F-350 SRW XLT

    Price: 10250
    Mileage: 110588
    Stock No: C80257
    Vin: 1FTSX31F1XEC80257
    Engine: 7.3L (444) DI V8 TURBO-DIESEL ENGINE
    Transmission: Automatic

    Now here is lovely truck # 2!!!

    Disadvantages here are obvious. More miles on a younger truck. Its a cc lb so plowing will be difficult at best. However it is a lariat so there is a + on the comfort factor. also is priced a little bit higher.

    Specs
    Price: $11,500
    Year: 2000
    Model: F350
    Mileage:146,388
    Color: white
    Enging: 7.3 diesel

    Crew cab long bed lariat. remote start, heavy duty service suspension (whatever that means).

    yeah, it almost seems too good to be true. Hopefully going to look at it sometime this week.

    the prices have been low on trucks since no one wants to buy them so its the best time if you got money ready .

    they both look like great deals. i like the 1st one better, but i HATE four door trucks. just me, they are better for a crew and working, but i dont like the looks.

    both are 1 owner trucks. im thinking the ext. cab vs. the cc just because i dont want to go out plowing for the first time with a cc lb. plus with a 16' trailer its gonna be pretty hard to manuvre

    I love CC LB's. So of course my choice would be the second one. But for you, the first one is so clean! That is a deal right there. If i were you id get it.
