Blemishes: This is a work truck; it has many dings, scratches, and dents. The truck cleans up well, overall, but it has it's fair share of imperfections in the body. See the pictures for more details.

Problems: Along with small things on the interior, the ABS light is on, because the sensors are a bit rusty, they just need to be cleaned. Brakes are in good condition, and to my knowledge, everything else works perfectly. My goal is to be honest here and give any potential buyers the best description that I can. Ask as many questions as you want, and I will get back to you with complete, honest answers. Although the body is rough, the truck is in excellent mechanical condition, it has served me well, and has a lot of life left in it. The truck has been taken care of; with regular service, fluids, and filters. Again, feel free to ask questions on anything I may have missed in posting.
Note: The Salt Spreader is not currently included with the truck.
Second Note: I will be posting the truck on Autotrader.com as well. That is where I will be posting the majority of the pictures, because plowsite here is not accepting them. I will put up a link to that listing so that the pictures can be viewed.

Asking Price: $5000

why are you selling this truck...?
where are the pics? can you send a few to me via email?

01-25-2009, 01:28 PM
I am selling because I need a larger dump truck that I can use to spread bulk salt material as well as plow snow, otherwise, I would keep it!
Here is a link to the rest of the photos...

Thanks for your interest!

and the plow is included? If so...a little about it? It's a snowway? How old and have you had electrical issues with it?

The Plow is included, yes. That plow is about as old as the truck is, but since then, it has had the majority of all the major parts replaced. No electrical issues with the exception of the previous wiring harness which was mangled by one of my wonderful employees.
