Fox body's are cool, and low miles are rare, but I wouldn't trade off that particular truck for it.

Thats true low miles that year is hard to find. I guess I've just never been a big Fox body fan I don't care for em. There are some really nice ones out there just not my thing I guess. Then again I've never been a big Mustang fan guilty as charged I'd rather have a Camaro or Trans Am any day, but in my defense I do like Chevys, Fords and Dodges. I think what ruined the Mustang for me is literally everyone and their grandma has two of them in Iowa. On topic though yes very nice car I just wouldn't trade a truck like that for it.

It's something id have to think about for sure I mean being in north jersey I'll really miss 4x4 in the winter, but that thing does have really low miles and looks extremely clean. Plus I have been itching to get a manual for quite some time

Thats just it. In the end only you can decide. I know how the feeling is, when a guy offered to trade me his Trans Am for my truck I wanted to do it so bad because it was everything I wanted in a car, Black RWD manual and TTops but in the end his car isn't worth near the value of my truck and he was only willing to put $300 on top so I had to turn it down

I feel like value wise it isn't to far off I mean I only think I could get like $7k here for my truck and I think that Foxbody is worth right around that. Most of the other foxbodys around here which there isn't many are like $5k and have over 100k miles and are pretty beat up

Do yall know that Ford discontinued the rear drive shafts for our trucks? I found that out yesterday before I took my truck to the shop. And out here in New Mexico drivetrain parts for 97-03 F150's are next to impossible to find. Everyone that has parts says to just come see if you can make something match.

How many miles are on your truck? Our area trucks sell high I don't know about where you're from though. It actually sucks trying to get a good deal on a truck here since even trucks with 180-220k are going for 4-7k its outrageous. I have no doubt the cars worth that just from a practical stand point the truck makes more sense. Especially if its your only vehicle and you have a child. In my case I have too many vehicles so it wouldn't have mattered. lol

My truck has a 143k on it and I payed $5,500 for it and all the stuff I did to it doesn't add much value so id probably be lucky to get $7k if that.

I would just have a hard time selling a reliable 4x4 truck, that I need 4x4 on, for a car that may or may not have issues and no 4x4, when my project 4x4 isn't drivable if I get in a pickle.
