I wonder if he realizes it would be cheaper to buy a smaller plow than to buy a bigger truck.

X2 he is probably familiar with craigslist and knows he will be lowballed, i always start high on my CL ad's. i had a snowblower for sale here not too long ago and i was asking $350 for it and i got an email from a guy offering me $100 for it. my response to him was something like this..."ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, no thanks." lol i later sold it for $275

i was thinking the same thing, nothing wrong with an F-150 plow rig, they are stout trucks, especially the older TTB equipped ones.

Don't forget the part where it says "this truck isn,t perfect but does run,drive and work like a new truck".He'll be lucky to get 3500 for it.
