I did...it seems fine and there is little to no rust. He said he was the firstbperson to put a plow on it and he only had the truck for 6 months. He only plowed 2 lots...he said his reason for selling is he wanted a car again.

Number one thing I saw to guys who buy lifted trucks with oversized tires: What gears is it running?

i like it, you can probably make a good amount of change back if you sold the plow i would think at least $1000 maybe 1200, but overall i love it. reminds me of my first ranger.
