What should I pay?

I'm looking for a regular or extended cab F-350 with an 8' bed and minute mount plow for sale in CT. When I find one, what should I pay or offer for one in good shape and minimal rust? I don't mind a little bondoing/painting if I have to.

For example, something like this: * Ford F350 Plow Truck Diesel *

you're in the right ball park. that one looked a little rough for the price. to me that is a $6500ish truck with proof of a new engine and no rust (that's a big one for me) then you throw in a plow and add another couple hundred for it.

What about something like this? 1995 ford f350 powerstroke Again, don't mind a different color bed or something in need of Bondo but hey, beggars can't be choosers in this state. Are the fuel lines a major issue? This truck's an hour away, but it's cheap.

depends on what he means the fuel lines are bad. the lines run from the tank to the selector valve up to the engine through the pump, then the filter, then back through the filter, then to the heads, the out the return lines to the regulator back down to the selector valve and back to the tank. they are mostly hard lines

If I had to replace all the fuel lines, is that an easy thing to do? I might look at that truck depending on how fast I sell the IDI and how much it is to tow that back here

depend on ho in depth you want to get. to do it all you would need to drop both tanks and replace from there. if you wanted to replace all the hard line with more hard line it would be more time consuming and expensive. but i doubt it's the hard line that is leaking, then again in the salty north east maybe it is. you could run rubber line from the tanks all the way that should be too bad

iv looked at a bunch of ct trucks over the last few years for friends and parts and stuff and its a bit#$ to find anythimg clean in ct. try not to spend any more than 5500. bc any ct truck u go look at will need work from all the salt and calcium on the roads. Other than rusted body parts ull wanna make sure the oil pain is good, the oil cooler is ok, rear spring pirches, diff covers headers and body mounts. Iv even seen a head crack anfrot out on a friends truck that he bought bc there was a salty sandy mix sitting on the header.

You'd think buying a rustbucket would be cheaper up here Honestly, I've considered flying to Florida to drive a truck back and put a plow on it up here.

I might if rubber lines would be cheaper and easier.

I know we have rust, and I'm willing to accept that. I have all summer to brush and paint the underbody, or replace whatnot before plow season starts I like having you all to consult with on what may or may not be a good purchase. I'm only 18 and starting out on my own in the automotive world!

my 94 came from NC and i have worked HARD to keep it rust free the 97 came locally and has rust and that's fine, i don't care about it, it's just a beater. what i'm trying to say is don't be scared to travel you could very easily get a better deal
