I love Fords as well. My first vehicle was a white '99 F250 with the Triton V8 (it was the light duty 250 with the 150 body style), sold it earlier this year. My dad has had many over the years. Currently has the red one pictured above, a '95 F250 also with the 7.3, and a F650 with a blown 5.9 Cummins. We have a Cat diesel to go in its place () and a 4 car wedge trailer to use for hauling Jeeps to Moab!

I'll obviously have to fix that so I can take it on and off of the truck, but it should be a fairly simple fix. It's an '05 model, and it has a gas powered fridge, stove, and heater. I just need to add a small air conditioner and it'll be perfect for trips to Gulches, Harlan, and Windrock! For $900 I think it was a steal!

It's the ultimate hardtop duh!
Can you possibly Pm that salvage site, you definitely got a steal there, congrats!

You have to pay to be a member, and in many states you need a dealers license to bid.

Makes sense, especially since your dad has a shop, but thank you!

My first car was a 69 mustang. I'd trade them all for that car back.

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.
Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.
4.0 auto, 8.8 rear with detroit locker, 4.10's and 33x 12.50's

I thought they were all the same body but had different suspension and drive terrain to differentiate them from one another, just my thoughts is all

I know the rear ends look similar but 150s have a different front clip at least in the 20xx's. Never seen an F250 with that front clip. I believe the older F-series trucks all looked pretty much the same. My Stepdads F-350 looks the same as the 150s from that body style (mid-90s).

Well lets see. It has more creaks, squeeks, groans, ticks and rattles than I thought was possible, Ive been getting Death Wobble everyday since we got back and the engine sounds like its losing a piston skirt.
