Cheap 2001 F350 crew cab diesel 4x4

I am getting a new truck for the shop, and as usual the trade in value of my old truck isn't much. So I rather sell it to someone that needs a good truck rather than give it to the dealer to resell and make money on (my version of sticking it to them).
So if anyone needs a 2001 Ford F350 XLT crew cab, 7.3 Powerstroke diesel, automatic, 4x4, power windows, locks, tinted windows, rear slider, AM/FM/Tape/single CD, cruise, AC, 81K miles, 1 owner, Mobil 1 synthetic since new, Black with grey interior. Even comes with the factory floor mats I took out on day 1. Tires are good, all services up to date. Rhino-Lined, gooseneck hitch, ARB bumper, front and rear class III hitches, Warn 10K winch, Hella 4000s, etc etc.
$13,000.
You gotta be quick though, and I know this likely won't work, but thought I'd give it a shot. I rather see someone else get it cheap than the dealer.

Automatics work much better for me hauling a 30' gooseneck with 2x 90s on it through Boston Rt 128 traffic.

"technically" in "Maine" language it would be:

That's a wicked good truck at a wicked decent price there guy!

Agreed, but I prefer changing clutches to transmissions.

Depends on certain factors IMO.
My wife drives this truck too with a horse trailer and I wouldn't want her smoking a clutch in traffic outside NYC.
We just use synthetic ATF and change it ever 25K miles and have never had any issue with an automatic. We have a 1995 F350 as well and it is also on its original automatic.
Its all about how you care for them. If you do care for them you would never need to change an automatic gearbox in the time/miles that you would have to change a clutch in this truck.

If you were closer, (to Arizona) I might be able to convince my father that is the truck fro him! But I would end up being the one driving it across the US, and winter on the east coast and a west coast/southwest driver sounds scary (me).

Nice looking rig though.

Good heavens man! They do clear the roads up in the NE, 90% of the time you're driving on dry pavement. Its really not a problem, and by the time you are very far south, the problem is totally gone. You just fly in, drive south on 95 and then hang a right.

They dont really clear roads in Maine too well I lived there most of my life and when you cross into NH the roads are clear. Night and day difference

with mikes permission I have an edge unit with the attitude controller(control on the fly plus EGT guage) for that truck for 300 dollars. I would trade it for a d2 winch bumper or a 9k low profile winch for my p38

... and thank god for that.
How boring would it be to drive on clear roads when it is f-ing cold out. You gotta have some fun. Driving on snow is where I learned to drift and really handle a car. Much easier to practice on snow and then translate that to tar.

I think last year I would have needed 4x4 in that truck for the roads maybe 2 days, if that. The rest of the time the roads may not be bare tar, but they are clear enough for all the 2 wheel drive UPS trucks all day long.

You snow-panzies you!!!

Havin' the rear end come undone is allll kinds of fun.

Rockland and south is real easy goin', even in the winter. You aren't going to be breaking any trail, long as you stay on the main drag.

Even if it were 2wd, put some weight in the back and you'd be fine.



As to the truck, I wont be buying but there may be some locals who might.

I'll pass the word around.

i love the snow! Drive as much as I can in it! Just was pointing out that the secondary roads in Maine dont clear as fast as some would believe. Still fully covered in Brownfield today:O) and yes the p38 did drift untill that pesky tc kicked in(how do I shut that off? mike)


Seriously that truck is a smoking deal!(and I am a cumimins kind of Guy)
