Price Estimates on 92-above F250s or F350s
 
Hey guys,

Im looking to get rid of my F150 for something a little bigger. I want solid axles this time. Im lookin for a standard tranny , 4x4, F250 or F350 Reg Cab, with a Diesel. It would need to be in good shape though, body wise and mechanically. I am hoping to get a little more reliablility out of something a little bigger up here in Alaska. The 1/2 ton parts just dont cut it sometimes up here. Well this post is really just to see what you guys estimate the average price of the truck Im looking for might be in your area or maybe in Oregon or in the NorthWest. Im going to try and get 9,000 out of my truck I have now and get this one. Any estimates are appreciated [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

you want an F350 then because F250's use TTB similar to F150s, not a solid axle. if you find a nice F250 for a good price, you could however spend another grand and swap a Dana 60 in place of the TTB, which is pretty simple. That's actually what I'd try to do because there are TONS more 3/4ton trucks than SRW reg cab 1 tons, so the selection would be much greater, and you'd save enough to buy that Dana 60 to swap in there. I think that's the only difference between the two trucks, with the exception of stiffer springs, but that wont do much for you as far as reliability. For 9 grand you're going to be looking at 150K or more miles on the ticker for a 4wd reg cab F250 with a PowerStroke (94+), but if you just want any old diesel, the 92-94 IDI diesels are way cheaper. if you'll settle for a gasser, you can get quite a nice low-mileage F250 for 9 grand.

oh, since you mentioned it, this truck popped up on eBay awhile back and it was a rediculously good deal, in my opinion:

if i'd had the money i would've bought it, very nice tow vehicle [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]
