That right there is enough reason to get it. Is it at a dealer or from a person?

Ford's always been my choice. The powerstroke has long legs, and a mid range power advantage and will out pull a load vs. the Cummins. Cummins has the advantage @ lower rpm but runs out of breath in the mid range under load next to a powerstroke. If the truck will work and carry loads--Ford is King of the road loaded, and towing upgrades and hills.

Nice truck. See if you can get them down to 8000. The more you act like you like the truck, the less likely he will move on the price. Good luck.:Thumbup:

I love my 97, if it were an xlt it would be the perfect truck for most anything I do. Its easy to park, drives nicely, tows extremely well, and is as reliable as it gets. I gave $8,000 for mine a couple years ago, but it was in need of injectors, and a solid mass flywheel conversion. All said and done, no regrets, love the truck!
