so I may pass. (PO's may have overloaded it which I may run into the same problem.) I will do some researching and maybe investing in a newer truck with a warrenty/comfort features would be nice for DD. I do like the trailer and depending on what kind of deal we can make i may go ahead and pick it up. That way I have the trailer ready when I pick up a nice truck to tow.
I would be happy with the era. You will find a really good gas fueled truck for a good price in that 1992-1997 era. I am very partial to the 351. More so than the 460. And, of course, the F250 is a better choice.
A 1997-2004 F series will cost twice as much for a truck in the same condition and miles, but they are a good looking rig. And, if you get a 7.3 diesel get a turbo - 99 on.
