    1997 Ford F450 w/ Western plow and 8’ stainless steel Western spreader. 10’ heil dump body. 82,690 miles with the 7.3l Turbo Diesel motor. Truck is barely broken in.

    Snow plow was just repainted in the fall. We put over $1500.00 in this truck within the past few months. New glow plugs, new glow plug relay, new headlight switch and wiring harness, new turn signal and hazard assembly, new windshield and a new solenoid for the dump body. Truck was just serviced as well. Batteries are pretty new as well. Front end was replaced before last fall. Truck has chrome wheel simulators, an electric trailer brake controller, hitch and strobe lights. Front tires are about 60% and rear tires are about 40 to 50%. The only know problem with this truck is the horn just stopped working, either the horn is bad, steering wheel button, etc? Also the front bumper is a little tweaked. There is a crease in the back corner of the dump body, see pictures. Dump body is getting some rust in the welds as well. Vinyl lettering will be removed and the truck will be thoroughly cleaned prior to purchase. Truck starts right up and doesn’t leak. Dual tanks, automatic, am/fm radio, A/C. Landscape season is here and this truck is a money maker in the winter. This truck is located in Toms River, NJ if anyone would like to look at it, just email me. If you don’t want the sander let me know and we can work something out. Any questions let me know.

    you will definately get noticed in pink trucks. i think your price is good but the color sure hurts your chances of selling it at all!

    yea we have that problem when we sell stuff, but you can get a decent maaco paint job on it for 6 or 7 hundred around here and you'd never know.. we dont do the door jams or anything this way people can get them painted cheaply and easily..

    i would probably say 10,500. i got a lot of offers so far, but you know how that goes...

    yea we here all the comments.. we do a lot of landscaping on jobs with old union guys and trust me we've heard everything. lol but the girls go crazy for them, haha..
