    OK just trying to see how close this guy is to actual value. It is a 99 7.3L diesel f-450 5spd XL 78K miles. It comes with 9ft dump, 9ft plow, dump has metal leaf box about 4ft tall. Appears OK, worked, but OK. Carfax listed 18 reports, but didn't want to pay $20 to find out what they were. They are asking $22,900.

    So you would rather spend 22k blindly than $20 that could help you avoid a very costly mistake?

    Yes it is the one in mass. Please tell me more. No I wouldn't buy it blindly. I was just talking to the dealer about it today. I can get the report free from them that's why I am not spending the 20 bucks. So what's up with the truck?

    We bought an '01 F450 2 months ago, 7.3 Powerstroke, Automatic, 4x4, 12' flatbed with power Tommy Gate, 2 underbody toolboxes with 74K miles for $22,000. We bought it locally from a friend in the business, didn't really feel like hassling him down on the price. Really, the truck is worth about $20,500 or so, but I didn't want to bust the guy we bought it from, we do a ton of business with him.

    I've been noticing a lot more 450's lately. I don't know much about the bigger trucks-350-450 etc...
    What's the step up between a 350 and 450?

    Not sure on the exact numbers but I believe it is close to 4000lbs.

    A F-450 can carry 8000lbs a F-350 can not the 99 and newer F-450s run the 19.5 wheels and tires they last longer.

    The days are gone when a F-350 is a do all truck they are pretty much too small now they don't have the gvw. I went to F-450 trucks almost 6 years ago I won't run a 1 ton truck anymore its not worth it. The trucks I use are the OBS F-450s they carry the same amount of weight or more than the 99 and newer F-450s. I'am looking at a "Super Duty" F-450 but its hard to swallow spending 45,000 dollars on a 2wd F-450 6.0 spd cab and chassis. Thats what they cost here by the time you add a dump body it pushes the price up another 7000 dollars.

    If I wanted a XLT F-450 4x4 cab and chassis with a 165 wheebase I'am looking at 48,000 dollars CND.

    I'am having on HELL of a time finding a used 99-2002 F-450 I can't find anything. I'am also looking for a 97 F-450 with low kilometers I do like the OBS (old body style) trucks. I would like to have a 4x4 so I would need a 99 or newer truck.
