    it better look a whole lot better than it does in the pics. looks to me like just another beat up 10 year old truck with a stupid tall lift and big tires. not worth anywhere near the $10K.

    HUH?? Have you guys priced a stock F350 Turbo Diesel lately??? Let alone one with that much lift, nice boggers, and some nice bumpers?? I see one flaw in the whole damn truck, that dent in the rear on the passenger side. No other signs it was beat on, it looks in way better condition than my 1997 Daily driver Chevy. You are just being dumb cause its a Ford with more lift than you would put on a vehicle. :rolleyes:

    Blue Book on the factory truck is over $12,000

    it was a farm truck

    with those farm tags and the looks of the inside of the bed I would bet those are some hard miles. but if you got 10k to play with its all you. :deal: I would double and triple check everything before you sign. I would rather build a 10k sub or blazer or even a CHEVY p/u.

    lift, tires and all that crap detract from the blue book value. With the gooseneck hitch and the diesel you can bet it was worked hard for most it's life, then lifted and prettied up.


    I'd have a real long hard look at it, then lowball them.

    Dude go and check it out if it looks good trhen do it. I have had three
    7.3 turbo diesel for trucks and I think the are a hell of a lot better than Chevy.
    As for the hitch in the bed no biggie thay more is just starting to get broken in.
    Good luck on what you decide to do.

    It's an Ebay truck, you can bet it's been cobbled together the cheapest way possible...then shined up so some dumb kid will buy it for more than it's worth. (no offense meant) "It's a "3" dressed up as a "9"" IMO.

    I love too go mudding. High rpm wheel spin is what it's all about for me. Not sure a Desiel would be the greatest for mudding. The blocks on the front scare me !!!!!

    :rotfl: :haha:

    You can just bet... if they cut corners by putting blocks up front.. then they have cut corners where you can't see..

    This truck was built to "look" the part... not perform it. Just my 2 cents.


    Man, those front blocks must be at least 4" blocks... :yikes: What the hell was that guy thinking anyway? :screwy:

    Front lift blocks are way more expensive than springs and they handle better... I don't know where you got your information. ;)

    Well it is sick, for a ford! Aside the fact of the front lift blocks, who care what these guys think, they always have to hate on the big clean trucks! I also dont htin kits a ebay truck that was hacked together. Its a dealership (don't know exactly what they call them, theres one here, they buy your car, ususlly classics and sell them for a lot and you they get a profit) selling it on ebay.
