OK, I don't know if you could find a better deal than this. 94' 1 ton dodge cummins W/ 16' bed! in GA for $3500 http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/cto/1356952480.html screw some plywood on top of the steel deck and you are ready to go! As far as it is away, I am almost tempted...
By looking at the pics of the 94 dodge I think the frame needs to be extended if you are going to haul a heavy load. If you take it to a shop that would cost $300-$500. That would still be a good deal.
Trevor Glad to see Ford is changing their engine again...maybe they will get it right someday....Ford had better get a better idea! Great truck poor diesel engine
If only they could put a Cummins in the Ford.
dbest, here are a couple of more photos.Do you have any more pictures of those.
The lift has some of the fastest hydraulics I've seen which takes some getting used to but becomes a time saver.
Well as soon as they get rid of the V-8 and go to a straight six then they may have a chance.

just some info please, is this truck below under powered for a load of bee's and pulling a trailer with a loader? and how many hives can a 20' bed hold fully loaded? (say double deeps 10 framers)
the truck is probably not under powered but it does have the 6.0l engine so then you have a V8. I had a choice of a truck like this, or one with the DT 466 i went with the DT.
as for hauling bees my truck has a 18ft bed but with a 20ft you can haul 14 four way pallets on a layer so that would be 56 or if you go two high 112, or three high 168.
yeah guest you right, I know the 6.0L in the fords aren't a good as the 7.3L were, guest thats the down fall on that truck clean truck though. Thanks
Power is relative to how fast you feel like going. My old truck was a Ford LN7000 with a 20' bed. It had a 3208 cat rated for 185 hp. It was slow when fully loaded but got the job done.
I am holding on to the hope I have inside... Kutless
what ever happens to the older trucks or new with the custom bee booms like the one on the movie Ulee's Gold, I have never seen one in person so they must be rare as hens teeth, been to many apiaries but everyone seems to use loaders and flat beds.
