    hey guys i ran across a guy selling a f350 with a lawn bed on it. it has the
    v10 133000 miles. he has used it very very little the past few years. he has been selling off his business. this is only thing left. i dont know much about the v10? the motor seems tuff drives good air and heat work well. what do you think? whats it worth?

    Every Ford V10 I've ever heard of has blown spark plugs out of the heads. Not much better power than a V8 either. I used to drive a tow truck with one, it was a pig. Yeah, agreed on milage too, half that loaded.

    Thats odd, i have never heard of any ford v10s having problems. They are a great motor, and have much 65 more horsepower than the v8.

    One of the best work pickup motors currently built in my opinion.

    pros- no trailer to buy or pull, easy to get parts, gas is cheaper than diesel, insurance rates good

    cons- gas mileage with that bed 9 mpg, you'll need a personal vehicle as well, you'll need some tranny work at about 160K(maybe already done) Diesel will go a lot longer.
