    3k range is about right. Maybe 3500 if no rust.

    I think Ron's wright on the price. In case it is a scam, make sure you wire Monopoly money!

    I just shopped for older trucks for over a month before buying something newer. I'd say that price is about right. It looks really nice. I'd even go 4k if it's rust free on the bottom and you really really want it. If you don't get this and end up wanting another 2wd or even if 4wd look south. For around 6 thousand bucks you can get a really nice older truck if you take time and look and don't mind driving a few hours to get it.

    This truck is one of the cleanest PA trucks Ive ever seen... Just trying to make up my mind if i'll be happy with it. He's going to hold it for me for another week or 2 before he advertises it elsewhere.

    I finally was able to complete the deal on this truck. After driving it for a couple days, I'm glad I waited around for it. The truck is so quiet, no rattles, everything works as it should, interior is spotless, etc. There is a couple spots of surface rust, but there isn't a bad spot on the truck. By far the best work truck I've ever had and don't see why I can't run this truck for at least the next 5-7+ years given its current state.

    Anyone have a set of aftermarket wheels for one of these 2wd trucks? It still has the stock wheels/caps and wouldn't mind finding something a little better looking. I'd consider anything really and the cheaper the better. If they came with decent tires that would be an added bonus. Thanks

    I've got a set I can sell ya. Not sure what style your looking for but they have tires so you could always see what they look like first.

    What about Mark's Mach I wheels? You could strip and polish them or plastidip them or ???

    Price sure is right.

    Unless you're looking for 5x5...not sure about those earlier F150s.

    Not sure if those would fit or not, but I guess I'm looking for something with a little more of a "truck look" to it.

    If they are basic steel wheels, I'd probably pass on them... Thanks though.
