That sounds like a good deal, just the front axle is worth almost that much. If you dont want it could you PM me where you saw it for sale.

I had a 89 F-250 std cab 4x4 5sp 4:10grs. I bought it with 60k on it and when I sold it, it had 160k on it. I put a rebuilt pump and injectors in it at 120k and a clutch in at about 140k and that was all it had been touched. I loved it. It had a Boss v-plow on it that I plowed commercially with all it's life with me. With my pickup camper and enclosed trailer it grossed about 20,000lbs and pulled that fine. It was a little white knuckle to drive loaded like that. It had the power just not enough mass to hang on to that trailer at times. Sold it to get a club cab dually.
