Unhappy Truck Sales bad?

I was wondering if anyone senses a problem with the used truck market out there. I posted my 2000 F250 Powerstroke and I've gotten Zero Bites. It's on Craigslist and Autotrader.

Thanks for any input. Not trying to get a free ad here, just curious if anyone else tried to sell their 7.3L truck with no luck.

All depends on where you where you are. I have 3 buddies down here looking for quality diesels with cash in hand. How's your ad written. Let's see what you got and we'll critique it, help you make it look better. I looked for my truck for 3 months before I found one.

2000 Ford F250 2WD SuperCab Super Duty

Quoted from my ad on Autotrader
"ONE owner Ford F250 Super Duty Extended cab, shortbed truck. 7.3L Diesel, 6 speed (ZF 6) manual transmission. Over 20mpg highway mileage. It is equipped with a CURT Gooseneck Hitch and a frame-mounted receiver hitch. A trailer braking controller is also installed. The tires are new with the E rating (10 ply). No accidents Looks & drives great, Ice cold A/C, Mostly highway miles, No accidents, Non-smoker, Very clean interior, Seats like new, Front tow hooks, engine block heater, running boards, sliding tinted rear window, collapsible and extendable side mirrors, tinted rear side windows, and Alloy wheels. Title in hand, Runs & drives great, Must see."
I dropped my price from $10250 to $9950 hoping to see some "Under 10K" searches find me, but that hasn't helped. I am about mid range of trucks similar to mine and this one is in excellent shape.
I live in Tulsa, OK.
Everything after was auto entered after clicking checkboxes in the ad generator.

Can you link us to your ad? I'd like to see your pictures and what not. People in your area like manuals?

Is this your ad? Cars for Sale: 2000 Ford F250 2WD SuperCab Super Duty in Tulsa, OK 74107: Truck Details - 332247400 - AutoTrader.com

It sounds right. I'm starting to think your price may be a bit steep. I got my truck for $10,700. And it's a crew cab, 4-wheel drive, new trans, new torque, on 35s, lifted 4", lariat interior. But it definitely had paint damage and yours doesn't.

How long have you had it up?

Laki', that's it. I've searched similar ones and some are over 11K and the bottom are in the low 9Ks, that is why I started at 10,250.

it's been up about a month. For hauling, which is what I used it for and we are in Horse country, Manual Trans is the way to go, unless you can't shift

According to DMV truck sales are down this fall compaired to last year. However, this is GM with over 230,000 of the 2012 models sitting on the lot (with the 13s out). I dont think Superduty sales are down new or used.
