    I'm looking for a used truck for the lawn business. I recently talked to a guy who has a 1996 F250 4x4 HD,351,auto,plow package and has 98k miles on it. Truck runs/looks fine, but needs a few things: exhaust manifold,basic tune up,plugs/wires etc. He's asking $8000.00 for it, whatta you guys think? Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

    Sounds a liitle high to me. I would get the loan for $7500 and offer him between $6500 and $7000. You can use the extra $'s to fix the little things.

    Put about $6700 in front of his face, I bet he will take it.

    good luck

    Lawnenforcer, thanks for your input. It sounds a little high to me aslo, seeing that I generally buy GM products. I might offer him 6700.oo like you said & if he dont like it, oh well.
