1996 F-350

Hey this is an awesome site. I just became a member although i have been researching and reading all the post for awhile. I have been looking for a truck and i think i found the one but just wanted to know if it is a good deal? Its a 1996 f-350 automatic long bed (rhino lined) reg cab 4wd with 104000 miles on it. The front end is a lil wobbly and the tires should be replaced soon. Frame is solid but there is a lil body rust around the fenders. I read some of the other post on what to look for so im going to pick it up today and check all of that out. If i can get it for $8000 is this a good deal? anyhting to look for? thanks alot

I don't see where you are from or know what you have read, but make sure to check out the oil pan. A replacement done at the dealership is close to 2 grand.

If the front end is wobbly, jack that baby up and check the ball joints. If they are shot I would ask for a $750.00 discount up front. If the tie rods are shot also, ask for another $400.00

Others will chime in with more help.

tell them 8500 out the door and they fix the front end. It could cost alot for you to get it fixed, but they will do it at cost for themselves.
