price collapse on these trucks

hi

it seems that over a year ago when i bought my '99 f250, these trucks were selling at a premium. however after posting last night on a public site, it seems that it will bring no more than a rusted out gas version of the same truck.

is this just local market conditions or is it nationally as well?

You shouldn't have any issues getting $7-8000 for it. The trucks that are bringing the premium money are the xlt and lariat CCLB and CCSBs. Sell the plow separate. Thats a big depreciating factor right there as most people assume its been beat the chit out of with the plow. Obviously it doesn't seem thats the case with ur truck, but you can't change peoples minds.

hi

the plow doesnt have the wear on it for that. i have a copy of its texas title from 2012 so that documents the amount of snow and ice its seen.

i think its the local economy...trucks rot away long before powertrain issues and people are used to that. down in the south west where it came from, the legendary 7.3 and its rep for high miles/towing /etc comes into play. but here..where 6 yr old trucks need bed replacements..not so much.

going to lose my shirt on this truck.

hucorey is right. I consistently monitor the 7.3l market and the plow will scare people away. Get rid of it, get rid of the safety light on top, get rid of the plow attachment in front, take pictures of the frame, take pictures of the bed support rails

hi

the truck, based on the condition of the plow, copy of the tx title showing the time frame it left houston shows it hasnt plowed very much.

i have been talking to a few former owners of '99 super dutys that sold recently thru cl, and regardless of engine... 6 grand is about max for them.

Hucorey is right. Your truck has a lot going against it as far as resale value goes. The single cab, plow, and over 200k miles means that you won't be able to get top dollar for it. However I don't think you should have a problem getting at least 7k for it. Especially since it's a rust free truck in the north east.
