Lightbulb :help1: I need your judgement on this 1996 F350 PSD

I have been lookin into buyin a psd for a while and have finally found one in my price range w. what i would say is the BEST body style that ford has ever had. Anyway I dont know to much about diesels yet and was wondering if anyone could look at this truck and tell me what they think.
I appreciate it.



96 ford f350 plow truck powerstroke diesel, with boss v plow

I would be careful of plow trucks, even more so because it has an auto tranny. It is worth going and looking at, just when you go check everything real good. I thik their is a thread that is a sticky that tells what to look for when buying a Power Stroke.

Be carful when buying one of these trucks you want a nice one sombody has cared for. It is hard to walk out of the parts store spending less than $200.00. For exzample front wheel bearings over $300.00 a side. If you are not carfull the $ you are saving buy buying a cheaper truck can go right back in it.

I think I would stay away. Just from pictures looks like it has been ragged on. If I was to buy a truck today I would look for one that has spent it's years with a old man and looks as stock as can be.
