So now I am looking for a 5th wheel tailgate for my big little mule.
It HAD a really nice tailgate, black with fancy sign advertizing the farm and our miniature horses... in fact have gotten quite a few hits from people who got our web page from that tailgate.

But as goes the weather, so goes me having a senior moment.

Anyway, I am now looking for a 5th wheel tailgate for my 2002 Ford F250 super duty short bed. It can be chrome or black, just needs to be cheaper than replacing the original tailgate.

Yeah, duh senior moment... open tailgate, unhook trailer from 5th wheel coupler, close tailgate, pull forward, Makes nice V in tailgate.

Got out and started laughing, because all the *&^*&%$&*( in the world wouldn't help the fact that I did it and by laughing,

you bet, I indeed

Cash works too, make me an offer, no lowballers, no sammers, don't contact me about anything except the car, i don't need work on my house, i don't need to make money fast, i'm not a sucker and i dont have time for bs.

I have A LOT of time and money invested in this car, i'm not going to give it away, but i'm not stupid either, i don't expect to get all my money back out of it.

NOTE: figured i should mention that it doesn't look exactly like it does in the pics, the tailights and rear panel are molded in now, and it's beeing prepped for primer and paint. not like it looks a lot different, but it is worth mentioning.

Wanna trade...........

1966 BRONCO (2), need F350 - $15000 (Marionville, MO)

TWO 1966 Ford Broncos, both with full top and doors. Both have 302 V8.
CASPER (THE WHITE ONE) was my wife's. Comes with 302 V-8 and automatic on the floor with a new shifter. Runs great (although is cold blooded) and drives right out. 4 wheel drive also works great. Has manual lock out hubs. Newer high back cloth bucket seats and correct rear bench newly covered in black vinyl. Also comes with original front bucket seats that have been professionally re-foamed with new black vinyl covers. Has roll bar that is not installed - took out to put in new full length vinyl floor and front cabin insulation. Easy to put back in. Only needs gas guage hooked up, and speedometer connected. This vehicle is licensed and insured and street legal. If you jump on the brakes real hard, it will pull to the left. Just haven't fixed that yet. Newer steering column with turn signal that works as it should. Has add on heater that works great and is hooked up to defroster (made the defroster vents myself and they work great).
MY LIL MULE (THE TEAL ONE) also comes with 302 V-8 but has a three speed on the floor. Runs great and is my daily driver to work and around the countryside. 4 wheel drive leaves nothing to be desired. Has manual lock out hubs. Newer high back cloth bucket seats and the correct rear seat, presently not in the truck. Has padded roll bar and the original speedometer and guages that work, along with additional guages. Has era correct glove box with fuse box inside. Has original heater that works. Picture is with full roof and doors off. However, the roof and doors and back on this truck since the weather turned cold. Top is silver, doors same color as truck.
Both come with black bikini tops. Have lots of extra parts that go with the Broncos (new warn hubs, weather stripping, misc)

NOW THE OFFER: We need a F350 or F450 to pull our 5th wheel camper.

WHAT WE NEED: 2002 or newer, FORD F350 or F450 long bed pickup truck, crewcab (that seats 6 with 4 ful doors), 4 wheel drive, AUTOMATIC Tranny, Diesel with less than 200,000 miles. The seats must be cloth, with the front seats being individual buckets with the center consule that lifts up for a third person to ride in the front. We don't want leather or vinyl seats, nor the captain chairs that only allow 2 front seat riders. Should be in good condition without major flaws.
Must have clear title and NOT BE A SALVAGE TITLE. Should have towing package (as all F350s do), fifth wheel and gooseneck hitches a bonus.

Dodge and Chevy don't bother replying. We want the Ford.
Salvage title owners need not apply, you'll waste your time and mine.
Scammers, find someone else to harass.

Email me with what you have, a picture would also be nice.

Straight trade is best for us.
Want to buy Bronco outright? Casper $5,000. My Lil Mule $10,000.00

Alas poor ole me, just a humble Horse Farmer with a herd of horses, a pack of cows, bunches of chickens, two dogs, a number of cats, untold ground moles, a tractor and several instruments....

My big Little Mule, of course the Long Roof was holding down the back bumper so it wouldn't walk away

my Little big Mule

the Barngoddess's Little Mule,

a stagecoach,

along with a bunch of other farm related items..........

Well it's time to pick out my next modus of transportationus........

very difficult decision as there are sooo many makes and models out there....

But I am only going to get one make of car... a Ford Product...

now before you rant that Chebby or Dodge or Honda or some other namebran are better, you have to realize that the Barngoddess and I are Ford people... always will be, always have been since my 1965 Ford F-100 pickup truck back in 1971.....

We've had Chebbys and Dodges and Buicks and Volkswagens, but I must add that the Fords are the ones that we keep coming back too.

So my new automobile will have to be this:

Yes a pink Lincoln limo, just perfect for driving the Barngoddess to Walmart with.

And that is how we might Celebrate Life.........

should I buy one or not??????? Vote now
