Or how many vehicles you have, a mustang is a way better toy. An obs is a better for pulling that fishing boat. In my situation the truck is getting way more use, has made me more money, and I can take my family in comfort. My 9 month old was too big for the joke of a back seat the mustang had. I do miss sliding around corners ��

Biggest issue you will have is finding one that is in good shape and not all rusted out. When I was looking everything was just a total piece of junk. Seemed like nobody wanted to spend the money to keep them up or treated them like crap.

IMO regardless of the miles if the interior is in good shape that is a good sign the owner cared enough. If the seats are all stained and torn, wiring hanging down under the dash ... ... it's a pretty good indication the rest of the truck will be crap also.

Good luck on your decision ...

It also depends what kind of OBS your talking about. They did have OBS F-250s with 300 straight sixes... not exactly a great puller (arguably). And probably the most common OBS F-250 is the 460 powered. Great puller, not so great on gas mileage

I'm a diesel fanatic. This truck is my first diesel and now I won't get anything else. Plus it pulls really well!
