The bigger fenders in my opinion look better anyway.
A F350 M-H 4x4 is far from a rusty F100.

How long has the truck been for sale? Maybe you just have to wait him out a little longer. Those big trucks don't sale to fast.

That's why you don't tell the PO what your real plans are with the truck, unless they involve restoring the truck to its former glory.

Trust me, I wouldn't sell one of my old cars to a person that's going to chop it up. Case in point, a few years ago I was selling a 37 DeSoto. It was an all original and unrestored vehicle that just needed a tune up. A couple of middle-age lowrider guys came over and looked at it. I knew exactly what they were going to do with it, eventhough they didn't tell me directly... lower it, put some Daytons, a visor, air conditioner on the window, etc. They were going to turn it into a "bomb". They didn't even haggle with me on the price, but I passed on their offer because I didn't want the car being turned into what they had in mind.

I sold it a week later to another guy who has kept it all original and is driving it.
