F700 with 12V 5.9L - is this a good truck & a good deal?
I planned to upgrade from my current F350 crew cab dually at some point, wanting something that could haul my 2800 lb camper in the bed, while also towing my 33' tag trailer with 2 race cars (roughly 15000 lbs total trailer weight worst case). I figured on doing this in a few years when I could afford it, probably getting an F550 pickup. I came across the following ad this weekend, and I was wondering if it sounds like a good deal. The truck looks clean enough in pictures (it has a regular pickup bed, looks like the cab & bed are the same as my F350). The owner said the one drawback was the lack of an overdrive tranny, as it turns 2200 RPM at around 70 mph (and consequently only gets 10 mpg running 70 mph). Any thoughts? Anything specific I should look at on this truck?
Thanks and regards,
