    I'm thinking a train might be the only match for that thing.

    That's pretty cheap, even for a 2wd

    Too bad you missed this 1 AB, only 28k mi, and comes with a mint condition "Bush/ Cheney" bumper sticker..lol. All it needs is a "Miss me yet" sticker on the other side

    Nice looking truck but more than I would pay for it.
    Nice truck there too but I was dead set on getting a 7.3.

    Now here's one reasonably priced, high mileage but for the price I'd have looked at it.
    1997 Ford F250 XLT

    Update on mine. Removed lift kit and now I will see if fuel mileage has improved. Whoever owned this thing spent a lot of money on it. It has a performance air filter, high highfalutin rear pumpkin cover and tranny pan with heat dispersing fins on them. It's still a 170,000 mile truck though and in some ways it shows. I'll peck away at it. Given the air filter and those two covers and a couple of add on gauges I expect that there may be other performance upgrades that I won't find until I get a computer hooked to it. It runs like a raped ape, I never knew a diesel could be so responsive when you give it the gas, seems like a jet engine under there. I can pull out in traffic and before they even have time to curse me I'm gone.

    Maybe he had tranny rebuilt? That's really the only complaint I've heard about those, is the tranny burning up. My buddy gets his flushed every 40k and has yet to have a problem though.
    Had a guy pounce on his getting on interstate the other day, I was pretty shocked how fast he took off too..lol

    You know what they say---wish in one hand, and poop in the other and see which one fills up first!!!

    What I don't understand is, why dealers would rather auction it off after a few months, than deal on the price with a buyer. I've seen that happen a few times now, I'm assuming at has something to do with loss write-offs or something?

    Looks a little like mine with more miles and a little stiff on the price.

    This guy's truck has been for sale for three months now but hey, it has the, "Coveted 7.3 and Ford Motorcraft windshield wipers". :hysterical:

    Are they all doing it with the dent in the bumper too? Nice added touch.
