I've been researching trucks like a mad man the last couple days that are within my $2000 or less budget (and that is pretty hard).......usually I would take a little longer but this one seems like a good deal. It's an '89 F-150 4x4 ext. cab with tow package, hitch and wiring harness. The guy didn't like the electronic 4wd controls so he replaced the electronic hubs with manual ones. I kinda like that better anyway cuz they're more reliable (on an older truck at least). He also said that he bought it two years ago with 89k miles (it has 115K now) and it came with a heavy duty 4sp auto w/od transmission but I didn't think that was an option for 150's back then.....maybe you guys have some knowledge about that. Another thing, he said that he bought the truck with 1-ton helper springs and that they are rivited on just like the stock springs so he thinks that the truck came stock with the helper springs??????? Apparently the truck runs solid...No engine or tranny problems and pretty clean body. He said he used it to tow a camper and then due to parking issues he had to get rid of the camper recently. I'm gonna go look at it on Saturday. Assuming that the truck is functional and in good condition as promised and it passes and inspection by a mechanic of my choice, you guys think $1500 is good. Kelly Blue Book for that truck with all it's options was 1800+ in fair condition and 2100+ in good condition and 2300+ in excellent which due to a few rust spots, I know it's not in excellent condition.
