Looks nice and low miles. What is the build date on the truck? Is it an early 99 or a 99.5?

Yes good advice on the oil pan. When I had my truck up on the lift for my exhaust install I noticed my pan had some corrosion on it. There was enough to make me concerned about it. I bought some por 15 going to give it a shot when it warms up and I can get underneath. You have to pull the engine to change the oil pan its pretty costly so check it out good.

Make sure you put it through its paces as far as accelerating, braking, turning, etc...and listen for any bumps/clunks/and whatnot. We had a guy at work who used to beat the living hell out of our plow truck whenever he got in it. He never seemed to realize that stopping when you get to the curb was a good thing Not to mention the fact that he'd hug the curbs to the point that you could see the front end of the truck shuddering when he went parallel to one. It wasn't long before keeping that truck (2005 F-250 gasser) straight on the highway was like trying to dance with a greased fat chick.

Another thing to look at is the ball joints especially with the plow on it. They are notorious for going out early with the added weight of the diesel engine plus add the plow weight you could be replacing them. Look to see if they are greasable ones if they are they have been replaced at least once already as the factory ones are not greasable.

my teacher was a ford tech for over 15yrs . the oil pan problem is that they rot from the inside out . also he specailized in trans as soon as you start it up thorw it in reverse there should be no delay . also smell atf for blunt or sweetness smell like candy gives off aditives maybe covering up a problem .
