Would ya?

Alright, so I was bored at work the other day and was surfing CraigsList. I stumbled upon an ad that stated Trade for Dually or Stock Suspension. He's looking to be able to use something to tow a 5th wheel. I clicked on the link and saw a nice looking F250. Now, I have an F350 dually that is really overkill for my "needs", so I shot the guy a text and told him I would consider entertaining the thought of a trade.

I got more details from him and here are the stats:

01 F250
185K, new Ford factory tranny 60k ago
6" lift
cloth interior
nice wheels and newer tires
new stainless braided brake line
never been chipped to his knowledge
K &N Intake
Upgraded stereo
toolbox

Here's what I would give him:

99 F350 DRW
135K
Rebuilt turbo at 125K
New Tires
Leather
Custom interior with A/V setup

The rest are in my sig.

I'm just floating it out to get opinions of others..I have not seen it in person yet. We are working towards that this weekend. Anyone ever traded like that and can you give me your advice/experience (BMV troubles, titling, etc)

Trade for dually or stock suspension

Well its all in what you like. The truck in the pic is a good looking truck. i like the looks of a ccsb but i like the functionality of an 8ft bed. You do have less miles than his but his has a newer tranny. I traded my srw for the drw i currently have and i thought it was over kill for my needs untill i hooked to my fifth wheel and it was so much more stable feeling, plus everything i haul alot heavier than i used to. There are lots of pros and cons to that kinda trade. The drw trucks you have to worry about two more tires and if you lift it and run bigger tires you have to add spacers and the aftermarket wheel selection is crap. The srw wheel and tire combo's are endless. Personally after owning a dually i wouldnt go back to a srw truck, buts thats me.Like i said before it all boils down to which truck you like better. Good luck in your trading and atleast your staying with the 7.3

Thanks for your input. As of today, I do not do any heavy towing. Most of what I haul is in the bed, so I know I would lose some bed space if I traded. I am going to look at it and think it over some more once I see it. Of course he has his side as well after seeing mine. I have been very happy with my 7.3 and don't see a need to change engines.

Your truck has less miles and leather. I'd be wanting some cash on top of his truck.
