Good asking price?

Do you guys think this is a good price for a King Ranch?

Its a shade above what I want to spend, I can find equivalent trucks (Lariats) with more miles for around 20. But I think its almost worth the extra 6k to get a KR with less miles.

I am debating about selling the diesel. This would be its replacement.

Lol the f150? He towed with his old f150 before he got the 250.

Looks like a nice truck, but would it really be worth down grading trucks? Personally I would just stick with what you've got Zach.

This I know, but the 30 foot gooseneck with a Ranger and a Jeep on it will be quite a load for the F150

I dont own that 30' gooseneck. ive just used it.

I can use the F150, its not ideal but there are negatives about a superduty too.. idk i love my SD but its not been what I thought it would be. Im jsut getting feelers out there right now. If someone buys my SD for the price im asking I will let it go and find something else.

Do you already have a trailer that you use to haul the Ranger?

The trick is getting what you want out of the SD

how many more miles for $6k less? If its only 30k more miles I think saving 6k would be ok, but not it there like 50-60k more miles.

Trick would be to sell your diesel for what you want....maybe $25 is the lowest you will go? I would have maybe put it up for around 29k.

Then drive your ranger for a while and keep offering the dealerships with $26k F150 and offer them $20k....eventually they will need it gone

My Ranger I bought I went to 3 dealerships before finding what I wanted.

yeah i have a bumper pull trailer of my own. or i could get another one. no big deal on trailers.

Ive got a number in my head for the SD. Just depends what i am offered. If it doesnt sell it doesnt sell. So be it. Im not really pressed to do it.

Its a tad high IMO, but its a dealer so of course you have to deal. If they'd knock 2-3k off that would be perfect. You'll love the KR package, I just don't think I could do the F150 thing again lol.

Those front seats don't look nearly as bad as mine did, you'd be able to make them look beautiful again in a couple of months.

Keep the SD. You'll miss the pulling power of it if you get that F-150.

Im not sure I could either. I may just try to find a gasser F250 or something. I love the Superduty frame and styling. I just have not had much luck with my engine. Not sure if I should just run it till it dies or trade it off. Im looking for the smart way to do it money wise...

If I was to get the right amount for it then i could buy something cheaper again to get me by. Id even go to a cheaper F150...

Id like to start looking at houses and I cant get a house if I have a diesel

Price seems a little high to me as well. But a nice looking truck. What are you thinking for the SD? $30?

Truck looks good, four years old kills me but with 57K on the odometer I would buy it.

Wow tough decision. I'd say gasser super duty but that just me. If you don't have to drive far and don't mind terrible gas mileage. I'm obsessed with diesel engines but I'm still so scared of them. Buy a duramax?!?!

Hmmm ive been looking at Super Duty's lol, Not to bad of a price, my dad paid $22,000 around that for his '07 KR with ~80k on it.

My F150 I could probably get 17K for it easy if not more trucks prices are nuts around here...

Duramax is at the bottom of the list if you want a diesel. Plus I know Zach wont buy anything other then ford lol. I'd be in a cummin's after a 7.3 and before a duramax if I had the need for one.

Only 1,2 if they are in a ford. Dodges quad cabs are small and very uncomfortable. Trust me i drive a dodge with 6.7L cummins for work every single day. The seats are not comfortable.

I'm going to throw the 6.0l in there. Argue about its quirks but if taken care of its a great engine
