Its a great truck. Can I ask what your going to be using it for? I mean wioth winter hear for us and snow still on the ground, maybe a 4wd would be more benificial at this time? But im not sure what your using it for. The 300 and a 5spd is almost a bullet proof application. Let me ask ya, is the 5spd a m5od or a ZF? Good luck witha it anywayz. Does it have cancer?

i havent seen it yet, and although it is winter, i spent last winter driving a 99 4x2 f150 with a 4.6 through everything, and i need a beefy vehicle after my brief foray into the world of compact cars (SATURN) ended with a not so beautiful battle with the rear end of a dodge dakota (at least i got that bugger good). Im just using it for commuting around south jersey, and the occasional road trip, nothing too major, so i need something that will be reliable and strong. the guy is asking $1300 cash for it, so if i can get the funds, i may just try and swing this one.
