Model: F Super Duty Cab/chassis, 16k gvw (F450 equiv?) XL bare bones, no A/C, upfitted with Versalift TEL-29 boom on Baker fiberglass/aluminum dp utility bed with tool storage and 2200 watt inverter.
Mileage when purchased: 185,500
Date purchased: December 09
Current mileage: 189,000
Price: 5300.00 which included recently replaced transmission, 6 tires, glow plugs, alternator, both batteries, water pump, upper/lower hoses, radiator, trans cooler, starter
Upgrades/maintenance I've done (thanks to you guys): HD shocks at ea corner (KYB), front sway bar links/bushings, coolant flush/fill to proper ph, read ok but didnt trust what radiator installer put in, stroke oil filter/rotella full syn 5w40, Generac 5500 watt gas generator mounted to bed, boom wear pads, nice cloth bench seat from F150 XLT, updated IDOT required warning stickers. About 800 bucks total.
Working on/still to come: Driveline brake, passenger side front fender (only panel with rust), replace side view mirrors, front wheel bearings, probably needs ball joints and front end rubber but not terrible yet, tunes, stainless big rig wheel covers...not a priority but will look cool, soup bowl mod, y pipe mod.
This IDI is awesome, still learning it but it does everything I expect of it and well. 13-14mpg with all that weight on it and 5.13 gearset. I love it.
By the time I'm done playing with it, I expect I'll have about 7000.00 total into it, about 1/2 the cost of a new Baker fiberglass utility bed. In my book, thats a lot of value.
You got a great deal, I did not know that the F superduty had that high of a GVWR. I was under the impression they where all 14,000.

The "F-Super Duty" (as the fender emblems stated) models appeared from 1987 to 1997. They were basically F-450s built as an "incomplete vehicle" (chassis cab) due to the fact that there was no bed installed and an aftermarket bed (specific to its future use) was added after the truck's initial build date. It came with dual fuel tanks with a dash-mounted toggle switch to switch between each tank while using only the one fuel gauge. It came with a PTO (Power Take-Off) used to power attachments (like winches or a dump bed) from the transmission. They were rated at about 15,000 lb (6,800 kg) GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating). They came with either the standard 7.5 L (460 CID) gas V8 or the optional 7.3 L (445 CID) diesel V8. All wheels were 10-lug with DRW (Dual Rear Wheels). This model should not be confused with the "Super Duty" commercial line of trucks starting with the 1999 model year.

Thanks for the bit of info bill and HD. My door jamb states a GVW of 15k but the title showed 16 from Indiana and IL picked up the 16k. My guess is that it may have been upped during the upfit. Either way, no CDL barely.
Off topic quick question. Do all of this series have 2 sets of rear leafs? Looks like its progressive from 1st to 2nd set at each side. Definitely rides "like a truck".

1990 F250 4x4 7.3l IDI Supercab longbed XLT, with ATS turbo. 85k miles (although it might have been 185k miles), paid something like $7k when I purchased it in 2003.

Paid $950 when I bought it back from the insurance company in 2009, after a little front end "redecoration"! Now *that* was a bargain!

Glad you asked...

It was just one of those things I guess. The gentleman that owned it had bought if from the original owner who did infrequent bumper pull trailer outings and just never put many miles on it. The gentleman I bought it from had owned it for six months and was happy with it except the regular cab prevented him from carting his grandkids around.

I was actually not going to do the deal because he wouldn't trade even. But I specifically wanted a diesel and thought the Banks thing sort've evened it out so I payed the $500. It's my first diesel, first turbo, and I like it more than the previous F350, which I'd had for five years or so. I'm a Ford F350 fan in a big way now. The only thing I'd like more is a 4 x 4 dually, but I'll keep this one no matter what. Thanks for your comments, it's reassuring. I wasn't so convinced I'd gotten a good deal. Mileage is confirmed and truck shows it, does not rattle, not much seat wear. The RPM gauge shoots way over and is maybe not accurate. I drove a friend's 99' F250 7.3 and this truck feel just as fast by comparison.

This truck, unlike others I've seen, has a sticker in the right lower back window area that says "Norfolk Assembly Plant"...what does this mean compared to others?

Geriatric-lifestyle side sunners have been removed, greatly improved loooks. Extra large tow mirrors are a nice touch, but definitely pose front field-of-vision issues at times.

That is a nice looking dually and I do like the mirrors. I used the steps like that but cut them up years ago and used the aluminum for other projects.lol I don't have any pictures of them on my dually, but I put a set of the weston bars on it and they look pretty good.

1986 f250
Single cab, 8ft Tool bed
2wd C6
29x,xxx miles on it when i got it. (I inherited the truck, was my dad's he bought it used in '92)

Rebuilt transmission ~1000mi before my brother hit a bridge with it and tore off the passenger side fender and all essential wiring.

I decided one day I would see if a friend and I could get it running. The truck had sat about 3 years. I got all new relays, voltage regulator, and made my own wiring harness. its not pretty but its functional. Bought new batteries, new tires, and a used fender and passenger side door. rewired the truck, hit the glow plugs, and it started after about 4 turns of the crank. TONS of smoke, which cleared up after a new tank full of diesel.

After about three years all i have had to replace is, radiator, transmission line, glow plugs, vacuum pump, and drive belts. truck now has about 320,000 miles on it.
