      1995 F350 4x4 crew cab long bed with 7.3L Powerstroke Turbo Diesel. S&B cold air intake, MBRP 4' Exhaust, spray in bedliner, undercoating, new stereo and speakers. AC, cruise control, power windows/locks. sliding rear window, Ranch hand front end replacement and tool box. heavy duty rear bumper with receiver. 220,000 miles.*

      Let's get real... this truck is American, if you're worried about gas milage, go buy a prius and stop thinking you have enough gusto to buy a truck. This monster will sprout chest hair, give you a mustache that Tom Selleck would be jealous of, haul 43 kegs in the 8 foot bed of American steel, take 5 of your best bros to the top of Everest and tow the Western hemisphere. It screams 'MERICA when you stomp on the peddle. It will make women want you and men fear you. The front end replacement comes in handy for pushing away the mobs of women that will constantly be swarming you when you rumble into a parking lot. The tinted windows help keep you mysterious from all the paparazzi that will be trying to figure out what badass could possibly be driving such an image of mechanical perfection and the dual fuel tanks keep you rollin coal for over 450 miles.*

      Are you wondering if it has heated seats, dual climate control, navigation system, rear view camera, or leather seats??? The answer is a resounding NO! why? because this truck is meant for a man (or a badass woman). I used to want those things then I realized I'm not mentally weak and don't need a camera to tell me how close I am to a wall, I have an eye. I don't need a navigation screen to tell me how to get somewhere because I'm a man and don't need directions, I make them. I don't need heated seats... did Rocky Balboa need heated logs when he was preparing to fight the Sputnik version of Johnny Bravo? No, because he was a man... and an American. I don't need dual zone climate control because there is only one temperature worth setting: America's temperature. If you don't know what that is, you are a communist. I will allow you to use the AC only to keep that hot date cool because once she (potentially he... no judgment) steps inside, they'll melt and instantly ask to get married and start breeding your Captain America-esque children. You know the one, that person you've been asking out forever, the one who keeps saying no because your current car is small, soft, weak, and lacking in cubic inches? They will finally agree to see you now that you're a man (or badass woman). I also don't need leather seats because at the speeds you'll be hitting, you're going to want that classic cloth to keep the longitudinal G's from hurling you into the back seat.

      If you're serious about this truck and you think you have what it takes to reign in the bridle on this wild beast, bring $9700 American Dollars (OBO), some mental fortitude and a locket of Sasquatch's hair with you and I'll consider letting you take White Lightning for a ride.

      Hmmm... It's been done before, but I really did like "Sputnik version of Johnny Bravo".

      $9700 for a '95 pickup truck with 220k. And I thought Toyotas were overpriced.

      Try buying a used Subaru in the rust belt in November. A locket of sasquatch hair is worth double the price in WI as it is in NC, just sayin.'

      It's a rare, good looking diesel. $9500 is not out of line. Except for the bumper, it's all stock.

      I don't understand why the 7.3 diesel resale values have always been so high, but this really is an awesome truck. It would be a kick ass race car hauler.

      That said, I'm so over the cutesy craigslist ads now.

      The 7.3 resale values are super high because every Ford diesel after the 7.3 sucked lollipops, and because the 7.3 was the last diesel before the EPA put emissions equipment requirements on small diesels.

      The later Ford 6.0 has less appeal than tuberculous, and the 6.4 after it is also fairly problematic AND gets horrible fuel economy from the emissions equipment.

      The 7.3 was simple, powerful, and returned good fuel economy for a truck diesel. Thus people are clamoring to claim all the remaining 7.3's before they are all gone, and are willing to pay.

      Let me put it to you another way: Last week I saw an early 90's F250 7.3 diesel for sale. It had some rust and 293,000 miles. Asking price was $12k and it was sold the next day.

      This is a much more useful truck than a '95 T100. The thing is, someone with a '95 T100 with 200k miles will try to get $10k for it. The diesel is more truck for the money, and more justifiable.

      My family has a spare f350 7.3. With 419k miles it runs very well and get decent mileage for what it is; a big truck. It's not too bad to drive either. That said, the seller will probaly get what he's asking for the truck.
