Re: Price Estimates on 92-above F250s or F350s
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.
