Some specs... this truck is local to me.
2006 Ford F350 Lariat, short bed, FX4/4x4 off road, extended cab 6.0L diesel, 84k miles
Chrome package, tan leather interior, heated seats, adj. pedals, tow command, no aux switches. Captains chair seats, power rear window, bedliner, 18" oe wheels with NEWER BFG all terrain KO 285/65/18s, nice lookin tires
As much as i saw tonight in partial darkness, the truck appears to be immaculate, little rust inside on the "chrome" tow hooks...but nothing abnormal.
I think it even has the 6k front axle and 7k rear axle.
Theyre only 2 miles away, and asking $17,999 for it, most likely was an auction vehicle they bought recently from NADE in Columbus, NJ.
Now although " i feel" the price is a steal, maybe it isnt in this market anymore.
Almost 2yrs ago on the dot i bought my current 06 F350, had 3500 miles on it for back then, a deal, dealer wanted 37k used in end of 06, they dropped the price a couple months later and i paid about 34k for it. Two years later, it is still in top top shape, couple minor scratches around the back bed etc, 33k miles, a local Ford Dealer in NJ said they wouldnt take any trucks in for trade currently and especially not diesels. Another said they would give me lol $16,xxx for it on trade to a 08 F550 lariat diesel crew cab 200" wb and then all applicable rebates... I put a lot of money down on my truck in 06, and pay a ton per month, if ive STILL lost money on it and its only at 33k miles, WTF?
If they'd only offer me 16k with 33k miles on it, shouldnt the nearly same truck in a shortbed with 84k+ miles be around that price?
FYI the kbb TRADE value on this black F350 06 im looking at is over 18k? I know even the blue book hasnt cought up with the lack of demand for trucks, especially bigger ones and diesels. I figured ill stop in maybe friday, offer them straight out 16k for it and see what they say, i have nothing to loose, but we need another truck for our plowing route this season and need one before the end of November, safely.
Its a nice truck though, i dont want to like it as much as my own 06 lol
