Wondering if this is a good deal or not

First off, thanks for helping me already. I have been reading from this site for years. I am looking at a 1992 F-350 7.3 4x4 with new tanks, a new trans, all new tires, new bed(painted to match) truck with no rust w/ a brand new Blizzard plow that has never been used. Here is the down fall, the motor has 340,000 on it. Is $4500 too much for his asking price?? Thanks in advance
Mike

2004 FX4 Lariet 6.0 Green over tan w/34000.

Are you going to use it just as a plow truck? I would consider it for that price.

All that i would be using it for is for private plowing use for a couple parking lots of two businesses that I own. On occasion I guess that I would use it for my house driveway. Thanks for your thought.

I thought about that but I am still under warranty with my 04' diesel. Ford says that installing plows on these are too heavy for the ball joints and will void my 100000 warranty on the engine because going down the road with a plow on this diesel will cause the fan to spin backwards. Wierd huh?

Yeah I wouldn't put a plow on a new truck either, but for the price your getting that truck for with the plow seems to me a good deal for plowing as you can beat that truck up instead of a new one Since your plowing the business parking write it off?

If it runs good, I say it's well worth the money. You can get many more mile out of it.

Yes I would DEFINATELY write it off. But now I am looking at even a better deal. I am scheduled to go look at it at 3:30pm today. Here is this one:
1995 F-250 4x4 off road
5.8 w/20,000 ORIGINAL DOCUMENTED miles
One owner
New Meyer's 8' plow
No rust, no leaks
4500 firm.

As long as this is what I go to look at I am driving it home.
