thehorsefarmer Is Doing Some Horse Trading

My brother, affectionately known as thehorsefarmer is in need of a tow vehicle for his big*assed house trailer he, thebarngoddess and The Little Angel take, along with their stagecoaches and minature horses to horse shows around the Midwest.

thehorsefarmer is willing to trade his two vintage Broncos for a F350 or F450.

Below is a copy of his Craigslist ad.

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 gauge 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 gauges that work, along with additional gauges. 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 are 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 full 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 a Bronco outright?

Casper $5,000.

My Lil Mule $10,000.00


If any of you Counters out there are looking for a great Bronco, both of these are fairly well sorted out.

Drop me an email at and I'll put you in touch.

Thanks and remember to

Celebrate Life.
