Clearly he stated his name is Scott and he is in the room and your being rude.

Looking on CL I don't think his asking price is out of line. Check it out: http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/se...inAsk=&maxAsk=

BTW, this is not a dealer auction.

I'm not sure your point with the link as the first 3 I clicked on we're much cheaper and had half the miles! Just because some one asks an amount on CL it don't mean it's gonna sell for that either.

Re: 1999 Ford F350 SuperDuty XLT 4x4 7.3T Powerstroke, 6spd


When I purchased this truck, I was told that the engine had been recently replaced and only had 120k on it. I just assumed this meant it was with a new engine but, when my mechanic checked the vin number on it, he said it was a 1999 engine just like the chassis. I figured I either misunderstood the previous owner or got lied to so I gave the previous owner a call a few days ago. I found out that the current engine was a replacement that came out of a salvaged 1999 F350 and the estimate of 120k on the engine is based off of the mileage when the engine was parted out plus the miles put on the truck since then. Anyone who's interested in the truck is welcome to speak with the previous owner to verify this information.

Scott, I reads though the posts, and I will offer my experice on vechicles. I have lost money on every one I ever bought , exect one. That was a 68 camaro, I got because the dude was going to jail for a long time and wanted the cash. I had it for 10 years or so and sold it to a dumba** for 5 times what I biought it for with his daddy's money. Maybe it was worth it, maybe not. To me cars and trucks are just a piece of metal that costs me money and gets me to where I want to go.

When I buy a truck ( I only buy used) I know thse thing for sure:
1. I got robbed when I bought it.
2. I will put more money into it then it is worth now and when I sell it.
3. I will sell it for cheap. That is all it is worth on the market. The books say its worth more, but it will sit. I got use out of it so I dump it.

I look at it as renting the truck for a period of time. When it cost more then I feel its worth, or breaking down when I need it most, I unload it and get another. And Play the game all over. Gary

I've got a '99 7.3Diesel 6speed, Dually, Crew Cab with the Lariat pkg, 45,000 miles. I bought it new, it's a toy, not a work truck. The truck rides like a caddy. I love that truck, wouldn't even consider selling it.

Asking $9800, sold for $8750... I'd say you did pretty well...

Afterall, it was barely worth half that, right?

goes to show you just have to know your local market. Everything is about supply and demand. what wasn't worth more than $5k to someone on the east coast generated a lot of phone calls at $8750 here in the midwest. Lots of interest from farmer/ranchers and contractors. I've cancelled my ads but am still getting phone calls and emails on that truck.
