    Thinking of buying this truck.
    F-350 Dually
    2 wheel drive
    Powerstroke 60k on this new motor
    223K on truck.
    Power windows-locks-cruise-tilt-slide rear window.
    Carpet and cloth
    tow package and a elec. brake controller.
    rubber bed mat-shell over bed stays on.
    50% rubber
    Ford Dealer maintained and dealer installed new motor.
    suspension work -shocks and stuff.

    truck is very dirty inside but has lots of potential for a work truck.
    I can buy for $_000.00

    Whats it worth?

    Kelly blue book has the value at $9180.00
    The previous owner was a company. They used the truck to get parts and stuff. The company installs and custom builds refrigerated coolers you would find in large grocery stores.
    Company bought the truck new and were still using the truck daily until I bought it yesterday. I give $5000.00 for the truck.

    Just got home with the truck and It drives out very nicely.

    I think i got a good deal on this truck. Going to do Before and after photos and post when I get the truck cleaned up.

    thanks to all that replied

    You gave 5k for it, I think you got a heck of a deal. XLT, CC w/ a PS deisel. Everybody says to go check the book, but have they all tried to buy one? I know how long I looked and also some of the cr@p I looked at before I got mine. I paid over book, but I have all records and the truck was taken care of. Best of luck.
