Pros-ride, handling, tranny, quiet inside and out, pull great, good fuel mileage and all the trim levels offered. Cons-weak rods and some turbo failures if modded seems to be what you'll find. Personally if you leave it stock and keep up the maintenance I bet you'll have great luck out of one. Good luck with the hunt and sorry to hear about the stolen truck.

That one looks good! Have you looked at Vernon Ford in Vernon TX? I bought mine from them and they were great to deal with even from 450 miles away.

Not a bad looking truck. Some serious miles for only being a few years old. Ya, I know it's a diesel but I look at that sort of stuff.

Might try Ryan Ford in Sealy as well. That's where I buy all my trucks from.

If that is the price range you are in, I would say try and find a 12'. From what I understand, they did have a turbo change from the 11's to the 12's.
That's a good looking truck though.

I got a new close out 2013 F250 XLT 4x4 Crewcab for $39k. It does have $3k in hail damage but I think $42k would have still been good. There are good deals out there you just have to be patient to find one.

I've even seen some left over new 2012s. Dealers might really give you a heck of a deal on one to move it.

That looks like a nice truck. The price seems fair, but not great. According to Carfax they have had it since early July, so they should be willing to deal.
