Price check on a 2008 Ford 6.0psd Quigley

Hey. I found a van but I wanted to see what the forum thought on the price.

It's a 2008 Ford 6.0PSD Diesel with a Quigley 4x4 system from 08. It only has 51k miles

It is a base level 12passager van. Power everything but no frills and cloth interior. White exterior.

It's being offered for $34,000.


Thoughts on the price.

And sorry if this should be posted in a different spot.

That seems like a fair price.

I purchased my 06' E350 6.0 Clubwagon EB with 129,000 for $14500 a few years ago but it was a POS and needed a bunch of motor and front end work. 34k sounds about right for what I have seen. Keep in mind that converting a 2wd to 4wd might be more affordable and you would end up with a much better handling vehicle then the Quigley IMO

I'm getting tomorrow a 2014 LWB Chevy Duramax 34k miles
cargo, swing doors with every option a van comes with including backup nav DVD with Kodiak power seats for 32$. I will have a 2006 Quigly 4x4 LWB cargo with high miles for sale soon. Hope this helps for comparison.

gbayless brings up a good point......consider weighing this price against buying a clean newer low mileage van and then getting it converted to 4WD. Budget $12-$14K for the conversion.

If you want a Quigley and it's condition and color are what you want, then perhaps this one is reasonable. The other way you find a van that you like, and then you have your choice of 4WD conversions like Agile, U-joint, Quadvan, Quigley, etc.

Using $34K as the baseline, that leaves you at least $20K to find a van for 4WD conversion.

I have a 2008; these are the only year that have the older style interior and the updated nose/front end....FWIW.

Hey. Thanks for the feedback.

Yes. The Quigley 4x4 setup is not my favorite. Quadvan and UJoint would be my choice. Or my local guys Boulder Off-road.

I think if I got this I would end up having Boulder Offroad redo parts of the Quigley setup to make it ride better at some point.

This van will be my only vehicle too (As is my current 4wd van ) so getting a 2wd and then sending it out for months to get a 4x4 system installed would be a little tough for me.

I need to find something that's set up 4x4 and then I can make mods from there.

2008 6.0 is what id be buying this one for. The Quigley would be good until I could sink another 5k into it to make it handle and ride better. I feel like because of this. $34k might be on the high end for me. But it's tempting to grab Bc of the 6.0 and low mileage at 51k.

Are you planning on "Bullet Proofing" that 6.0 right away?

You can make a Quigley "handle and ride" great for a fifth of your 5k.

Hey. From what I've read the 2008 6.0 are trouble free. So hoping I'm not going to have to ??


Yes. There is a spring/shock package for much less. Right ? But I was going to have the guys at Boulder Offroad build a long arm front suspension and move the front axle forward a bit. That's the 5k. ;-).

2008 6.0 has all of the same problems as the '05, '06, '07... Starting with a low mileage 6.0 that has had no problems can become a very reliable engine after the correct modifications for under $5K but will save you more than that in the long run.

Agile Off-Road's RIP Kit is under $750.00.

Colorado Camper Vans and Agile Off-Road both offer adjustable Long Arms for just over $1000.

I picked up a 2010 E350 6.0 SDEB with 134k for a bit over $14k about 3 months back. That was about 10k miles ago after driving it home from the NE and a major trip out for the Baja 1k. It has been flawless. I love the van and am planning on getting the pop top from SMB and building it out the rest of the way myself.

During my search the advice given to me by a friend who owns a Ford dealership here in Chattanooga was to look at Ford's service history data for the particular vehicle. You may want to have a Ford dealer search this for you as it is more than your average CarFax. If you find there have been issues in the past, then you should avoid it. If it has no issues then it shouldn't give you any if properly maintained and not abused.

From my research, the 06-07 vehicles are a sweet spot as they were before the EPA clamped down on diesel emissions but after the classic issues with the 6.0 Powerstroke motor were resolved. Anything 06+ is what my target was. I just happened to find a rare 2010.
