    I'm in need of a dump truck. I have found one local, its a 1977 Ford F350 4x4 dump. It runs great and is in great shape considering the age. The guy is aking $2300 for it. I was just wondering if thats a fair price or not.

    The truck is too old. If its a truck with dual wheels its been converted to dual wheels and it is a P/U truck. You will find the truck will lack braking power big time. Not worth buying unless you are planning on hauling grass clippings or leaves.

    As for the price without any pictures it is hard to say what it is worth.

    gravel is correct, the only year ford made a 4x4 dually in that old body style was 1979. most likely an axle swap jobber. thats assuming its a dually dump. show us a pic

    its only single wheels. was an f-250 high boy. the guy put 1 ton suspension under it. i drove it yesterday and hauled 3 tons of crush and run. seemed to handle fine. It will only be for personal use. i was just wondering if it was a fair price. thats all
