This is the first used truck I've bought since 1982. I've been looking for 4 months for a decent cheap diesel truck that I could use to pull a 20' stock trailer and a gooseneck flat bed every now and again. I'll only put 12k miles a year on the truck so hopefully it'll hold up. Everyone besides my dad thinks I'm crazy for not just buying another new truck. But spending $50k to $60k for the privilege of driving a new truck didn't make any sense to me.

Well you got a Ford & have the BEEF plate on front. What more could you want? Congrats on your new/used ride!

JLTrent is keeping one just like it but with a fraction of the miles in his garage for me.

He's such a nice guy.

I thought mine was low miles at 175k until Trent posted his. I think it’s still under warranty.

Got to agree with that. Good luck with it. It's a nice looking truck too.
Good thing it doesn't have any white on it.TB would be trying to beat ya out of it.

Pretty remarkable.

I looked at one similar to JL's truck for $25k. One thing about it TT, JL will do his best to make sure it's the nicest 7.3 out there.

Nice looking truck. I know where one is about like it that went over 33k miles a few days ago. Changed the fuel filter and put the battery maintainer back on.

Congratulations, good looking truck. My opinion that is a smart decision to get a good used one instead of a new.

I'd be afraid of look under the hood. He might have put 2 dozen chainsaw engines under there instead of a 7.3........

Nice truck..
I bought another truck a month ago.. saw it up for sale, looked pretty straight and rust free..
93 dodge with a 5.9, 250,000 miles, runs like a top and not a speck of rust on it, though the paint is faded. I got it for about $3500 US, I have another grand into it for odds and ends, new seats, covers, and knick knacks

Nice truck when I clicked on it to enlarge there was a lot of women being advertised around the photo. Have you ever checked them out.
