Crew Cab Long bed or Ecab Long bed

I have been looking for an OBS diesel for a long time and right now in my area there is a 1996 F350 Crew Cab Long bed for $10,000 it has 200,000 miles on the body but 140,000 on a replaced engine. The other is a 1997 F250 Ecab long bed with 189,000 miles also for $10,000. I am leaning towards the Crew Cab but am nervous about the different engine that is in there and I was curious if the CCLB would be a PITA to drive and park because it is so long or is it not that bad? Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks

Price seems awfully steep, and yes it will be a pita if its 4x4 kause the turning radius is garbage, but at the same time I would never buy a super cab again unless its a ranger or obs f150, just like having the space imho, and the 350 will also have an sfa and not that ttb, good luck

Engine is the same between the two. CCLBs are all F350s, and typically go at a premium price compared to the F250s. Around here, such a truck would fetch ten large, but the ECLB would go for less. Shoot, my wife got a '95 ECLB with only 64,000 miles for $5500 a coupla years ago; 'course, the body was a bit beat up from hail.

Depends a LOT on condition, options, any aftermarket goodies, whether the cab was smoked in, previous maintenance, etc. But all other things being (about) equal, the CCLB should fetch $1000-2000 more than the ECLB, just on account of the front end (as mentioned above).

Yes the CCLB is 4x4 as well as the ECLB. How much longer is the CCLB comparted to the ECLB? So I am leaning towards the CCLB I checked KKB and they have it at around 8600 Should I offer that? Thanks

Where are you located? You're welcome to come take my CCLB for a spin and see how un-tight it turns if you're anywhere near the Spokane/CDA area.
Either one is going to have a turning radius of a country mile though.

lets just say u turns are pretty much not an option for me anymore in my CCLB. 10K is too much for either one assuming they're nothing special. around here a 350 is really no more than an equivalent 250 because the 250s sell quicker.

If i were you i'd buy the CCLB, much better front end. But i won't buy one of my own. There's just something about the supercabs that i love. They are inconvenient and a ***** to get people in and out of the back without steps or handles, but i just love how they look. Plus they are a little shorter than CCLB's.

I like my short bed a lot, and hell if your in so cal come try mine out lol, yeah your gonna need 4-5 lanes to make a u turn and its like towing a trailer all the time, there are no Sharp turns, and you have to swing wide everytime. I love my ccsb tho.

Out where I'm from we just run over what ever is in the way of the U turn including sidewalks and signs lmao, love my CCLB but only thing I hate is having to check all the doors to make sure I didn't leave one ajar accidentally cause that drives me nuts. Don't have a dome light to indicate door ajar lol.

Thanks for the offer to test your trucks but I am back at college in the Tacoma, WA area (which sucks). So the drivability between the e cab and the CC are gonna be relatively the same? Turning radius wise? And if ten grand is too high what would be a more reasonable price to offer?
