    Is this a good deal?
    1995 Ford F-250 with 80,000 miles 4X4, V-8, Auto, AC, with snow plow the truck looks and runs great. All for $5,500 should I buy it? Has anyone had problems with this truck? Will it plow well?

    Get a good set of add-a-leaves for the front axle. The stock leaves will sag quick with a plow on the front. Are the ball joints and tie rod ends in good condition? The ball joints are a PITA to replace on these trucks. Which engine does the truck have? Sounds like a good deal.

    I still need to go look at its 150 miles away but its supposed to be in excellent condition. I also don't know which V8 in it. Thanks for the reply LWCMATTLIFTER! :waving:

    I've had several of these trucks. Truck should have the 351 or 460. If you are lucky, it will have the 460. More durable and similar fuel economy when using it hard. the add a leaf for the front is a good idea and costs less than $200
