    Miles sound good, i just sold a 03 350 with 92,000 on it. I think it will be under powered to haul any thing. I dont know your intent. But if your hauling grass cuttings etc. it will work. I haul top soil, gravel, srw block would not work do to it being under powered. Check blue book price under yahoo and try to get it cheaper if possible. I think it would be hard to sell a 1 ton truck should have a diesel or v-10 for power.

    You could most likely buy a brand new one for 27k after rebates.

    Way to small of a engine for a dump. That truck is worthless.

    Is it common for ford to put that small v-8 in F-350's?

    I have been looking at F350s and have always thought that the 5.4 was a way too small engine to put in that truck. I test drove one and to me it felt like a lug to drive. Correct me if I am wrong because I am used to driving my 1500, but the 7.3 diesel seemed to have much better pick up and towing capability.

    I ve been a ford man for 25 years and they dont have a good motor selection. The 5.4 is really the old 351 Wd.\ It was a great engine in a car. But the way i feel when a guy buys a 250 or 350 he is going to pull or work that rruck some how or he would of bought a ranger. They need a good big block for these trucks like the 460 was great in trucks. There next size gas engine for the truck goes from the 5.4 to the v-10. I never had a v-10 but heard a lot of pros and cons.
