What Ya Think

Another one came up. Dang this is torture. I can get this 2011 F350 6.7 diesel crew cab long box for $12 K. 137,000 KM. Ex Oilfield truck. Took it for a spin not bad at all. Interior is great too. Thoughts.

I just bought that F150 from the same company a few months back. If I knew this was coming I wouldn't of bought that one.

Thanks.

137,000 km but how many hours did it sit running. Looking at the interior I'd say the driver didn't look after anything. Maybe buy and sell right away.

Such is life. Just passing through.

Do you need a diesel? If you don't use a diesel it will end up costing a lot in repairs.

Lots of idle hours but it did come from Alberta patch and most guys run diesels all day. Price is right I guess. Looks like a Secure Energy truck.

My hunch is 99% of used oil & gas trucks are either on their last legs, or completely thunder-f*cked.

There's a reason most companies mile out their field service trucks at 100k. Based on what I've seen, my advice would be to run away. Fast.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
