Low mileage. Easily worth that price assuming it is in good condition everywhere else. I wouldn't buy it unless I could pull the intake off and look at the turbo. I'd want no chips on the fins and I'd grab check for any play of the shaft.

Re: Opinion on this Truck and Price

How many miles? Looks clean i would offer around 6-7k if i was trying to buy it if it was a F350 or a 5sp i would jump on it for 8500 but is an auto F250 with the TTB front end so in my experience it lowers the price unless it has vary low miles. Regardless it is a great looking OBS

Its got 15x,xxx miles on it.

Yea I was really looking for a F350 with the 5 speed but I cant help but look at this one because of the miles and shape of the truck.

thanks I will take a look at it.

Did they put different ratios in the axles on these trucks? which is preferred?

Re: Opinion on this Truck and Price

Truck looks pretty clean, but mine looked clean in pics too. Check the radiator support, fenders, doors, cab corners, bed wheel wells, tailgate, rear spring hangers/shackles, oil pan all for rust. Seams odd for a MI truck to be so clean, I am skeptical. Looks like the fender has has paint work done(possibly hiding rot) But you never know. I paid 8600 for mine 2 years ago with similar milage

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known

Re: Opinion on this Truck and Price

Looks good but like Brad said, pictures can be very deceiving. If it is rust free and runs good, well worth the money.

Re: Opinion on this Truck and Price

I paid $8k for mine, knew the owner and it was as clean in person as it was in your pics. The price is right, if as others point out, it doesn't have a lot of hidden issues.

But mine came with full fuel tanks...yours doesn't. Talk him down if you can!
