What should I pay for this dump truck?

    Customer of mine, who I mow several yards and plow several commercial properties for, has a 1992 Ford F-350 Custom dump truck w/ a 7.3 motor in it. I don't know the mileage yet, but she claims she paid $9000 for it. I'd like to work in a trade for my plowing services but I'm not sure what the truck is worth. I feel $9000 is too high.

    It's 4x4, 5 speed, 8' or 9' orange plow (rough shape) and a salt spreader on the bed. The body is in rough shape and I'll have to do some work and repaint it before I put my logo on it.

    I thought 9k was a little high myself. Not sure how to tell her she got ripped off though and expect her to lose money on the sale.
