I had the identical truck with 68,000 miles plus Torwell sander, sold for $21,500 in 2 days.

Just found out the other day that the truck needs a new oil pan. Also found out that it was abused when plowing and towing as the owner is known as "Mr. Brutal"

if the truck was beat on then i would stay away from it maybe way he's selling it.Or just make him a very low offer ,if he dosen't take it no loss beause you could spend alot on that tranny if it needs to be replaced.

FYI, the motor has to come out on that truck to replace the oil pan. Luckily mine was under warranty when it needed done. If you know the truck's been beat on, I'd look for something else.

Where are you in NY?
