    I'd say that is a good deal! Did you get it from a dealer? I wish our dealers around here would have some good prices like that.

    Thanks , I am going tomorrow to go over Ideas for the lettering so hope it gets on the truck within the next few weeks. Ill be sure to post pics when its done

    I agree those motors last forever with proper care. I know a bunch of people with over 200 k on thier 7.3. and yes the plow was a bonus, I would have bought the truck with or without it but now I can hopefully plow next yr and add some cash flow


    Lol, The green is a very nice color when its all cleaned up
    one of my favorites

    Yes I got it from the ford dealer I used to work at. They were asking $19500.00 for it but since I know most everyone there and worked there for 6 yrs they gave me a great discount. Plus me and my family have bought many cars there and sent alot of sales thier way

    Nice truck. I love the color. I have a F550 with the same plow. Check the uprights at the bottom were the bolts are. I have two of them break there. We welded them back together. Look at the front springs on the truck. They tend to crack. I just had two of them replaced on an F250 today and it was $600. Also make sure the cam sensor has been replaced.
    I would like to fiend one that clean in Cleveland.

    Thanks, I checked over the truck top to bottom before I bought it even put it up on the lift. I am actually a full time diesel tech at a different ford dealer so I made sure everything was in tip top shape Lol even made the replace the 4x4 lever cause it would stick going into 4 low. I will check the plow though, it has some rust on the frame and such

    The plow only breaks at 3am in a blizzard.
