Rare Find

Hi Everyone,
I have spent the last 6 months looking for a diesel p/u. I knew the exact truck I wanted, I just had to find it. I found a low mile 7.3 in Vermont & was about to fly out there. Before buying a plane ticket I decided to check Craigslist one more time. What do you know; I found the truck of my dreams 10 miles from my house. Let me tell you what I bought.
I have a 2002 F250 Lariat CC SB 7.3 w/ 19,230 actual miles. Original owner, never in an accident, not one dent & parked in a garage. The guy had seat covers on all seats & extra carpeting on top of the OEM carpet. The inside looks like a brand new truck. It has a goose neck hitch that the ball automatically pops up & down with the pull of a lever. I am not sure of the brand brake controller I have, but a friend of mine says it is the best one money can buy. It has an inyati spray in bed liner with a rubber bed mat on top of that. Dual Red Top optima’s. Bank’s 4” turbo back Exhaust. Mag-Hytec Tranny pan & Diff cover. The truck looks like I just drove it off the lot. I am super happy with the truck, but I paid more that I would have liked to. How does $25,500.00 sound?
I searched the web looking for a site relating to these trucks for 2 weeks. I am happy to find this site b/c the knowledge here is overwhelming. I look forward to many years of posting & obtaining information from all the wonderful people on this site. Sorry for the length of my first post.
Kris

Congrats on the truck. It's hard to put a set value on that low of a mileage truck exspecially if it's that clean. If your happy with it then you got a good buy.

It's a nice find for sure. Like the other poster said, it's hard to put a price on the low miles and such a clean truck. As long as your happy with it.

Howdy and

I agree with everyone else. If the truck is still brand new then heck that is a good price.
