took a test drive today and i fell in love...

2004 F-250, custom built 12" or 15" fabtech lift kit, 38x15.50x20 mickey thompson tires with 20" moto metal wheels. had some performance stuff done to the diesel but the dealership didnt know what i was only able to see an after market intake. had a custom exhaust coming out before the rear wheel and it sounded so beautiful. i know the original owner of the truck when he had it a few years ago and the only difference between when he had it and the previous owner had it is the system has been taken out and so have the train horns and air tanks with compressors. dealership was only asking 24000 but i had them down to 20000. the flames are an iffy thing but i think i could deal with them. it even drove smoother then my ranger does now very comfortable and quiet going down the freeway. alright onto the picture

The flames suck, but you should still buy it regardless. That truck is hot. No pun intended.

ya ive heard mixed opinions about them. the biggest problem was being the turbo going out but this dealership this truck was at had a lifetime warranty on the motor so any problem with it they would fix

get them even lower. the flames are ***, and a truck with mods is harder for a dealer to move. $4K off of asking price isnt that much.... you can do better :D

Get ready for balljoints every six months.
I wouldn't buy a truck modded that much, but that's just me.
Too much money though, get them down more.
Could be a great truck it just looks over done to me.

An 05 with a 7.3? They started putting the 6.0's in the trucks in 03, FYI.

I wouldn't get that truck, but that's just me. Too tall, too big of tires, nasty paint job, and it has the 6.0. I definitely wouldn't get it for anything over 15K.
