Found a good deal but.....

....it has problems. I found an 05 f250 suoer cab 4wd long bed auto 6.0 with 105,000 miles on it for $13,000. It is plain with no power anything and vinyl seats. It has been worked but not too bad of shape. I test drove it and it has a bad vibration at around 40mph. It is only when you are pressing the accelerator so I figured it wasn't the tires. It also has a grinding sound sometimes coming from under it at lower speeds. Tranny seems to shift fine. Any ideas? I love the price, just don't want to buy a POS. BTW.....its tan, not pewter but a creme like tan was that a factory color for 05?

To be honest all I did was drive it. It was almost closing time at the dealerships and I had 1 more truck I wanted to look at before they closed. I would love for it to be something as simple as that.

Thanks for the link! I'm not sure if thats it but it sure could be. It vibrates almost as bad as driving over the grated sides on the interstate though.....and I'm still worried about the grinding sound.
