King Ranch a King Ranch?

Hey Guys and Gals,

I am in the process of buying a F250 King Ranch and I think I found the truck. Its a 05 with 47k miles on it. Loaded buckets in the back no Sunroof so no more car tanning The only thing I don't like is the steering wheel has black accents with wear. No big deal, but I don't want to buy a Standard truck with all the King ranch stickers and emblems. I think it would take to much time and money to do that.... but you never know these days. I have the Vin and is there a Vin decoder? Like the 4 letter = King ranch?

And also how to find out what tranny is it has

Also is there anything I should look for?

If I lost ya I am sorry I should of had a V8

Chris

Here are some pictures:

My steering wheel is a little black but not that black! What is that pattern on the carpet? Never seen that before either. Looks like the New Mexico emblem.

The prevous owner must have had really acidic hands or something. That wheel is really worn.

47K miles for a 05 seems low to me, I'll probably surpass that this summer with my 06, but back to your truck, I do agree the inside front esp the seats look a lot more used than the back ones, looks like they haven't been kept up either. I thought the TBC and Aux switches came standard on the KR, but may be wrong?

Trailer brakes came with mine but I didn't get the switches.

I've go 65K on my '05. I thought the KR seats wear more like a saddles wears, they just needs some tanning oil. Take them to a Equestrian/Saddle store and get some good oil to put on, then swap the front and back seat (if they bolt up the same). I would think the seats are the same just not the frame they bolt to in between the seat and truck. Looks pretty good to me.

Well damn Thanks guys for all the replys

I never really noticed the Seats... The miles are ok with me. For my price range and dealing with my trade-in and having to be white and local.

The switches were another thing. Maybe from 06 and up?

I dont see a problem with mounting the back seats up front. You just wont have power, backs and heat esp. for Florida
I have not seen the truck in person yet. I plan on that for next weekend.

Could the seats be brought back to life? I have already searched on ebay and other places for replacement wheels. I found the King ranch guy. Nice work btw.

Here are some more pics














Thanks again guys

Chris
