a few trucks I am looking at??

truck one 1998 chevy dually reg cab. Black. great condition. 4x4 5th wheel plate. Old guy had it for pulling camper, since passed away. 454 engine. $8500

Truck two 2008 4 door dually. Red. Duramax. 124000. Concrete crew had it - the fenders are chipped here and there, box is very rough, interior is ok, must of smoked in it as a few burns in cloth seat. $24000. Red in color

Truck three 2006 ext. cab white dually. No box. Duramax. 176000 miles. City owned truck with utility box on back which they took off. $12500.

Basically looking for another truck to add. I have a dump box that I would put on in the truck which is an insert. Not really sure - alot of miles, maybe a little bit of money?? Only trucks with in 30 miles of me at the moment that are for sale in the used market that are dually trucks.

The 454 will break the bank on gas mileage and the red truck seems overpriced. The dually has some miles on it but if it was well maintained it seems like a good deal. If I were you I would keep looking.

I'd keep looking. Driving a couple of hundred miles to get a truck shouldn't be a problem.

I'm looking to list my 2006 Chevy 3500 duramax 4x4. Mason dump Ext cab. It has 227k miles on it. We bought it from a electrician. We did alot of work to the truck when we got it to get it up to our standards Including a new dump body onto the truck. The engine has alot of life left it in runs just as good as my newer trucks. We're looking to get around 22k for the truck but if your interested in something like this let me know. Has alot of miles but the truck is in really good condition normally rust would be a factor at this many miles but it is not the case really good condition. So if you'd be serious let me know and I'll get you more detailed info.

The 454 is auto. In fact everything has been auto. Seems no one can use sticks now a days. Just not sure at this point. I have seen a few online that are within a 3-4 drive of me. I hate spending alot of the "to have the extra truck" but I also hate nickel and dime fixes as well. Miles per year - tough one - as this will be that extra truck I dont see much more than 10-15K if that in a year.

The gramps camper puller has not been worked by a crew or people who don't care about the tools they use.

Price is a little high ?
What's the mileage

I just did Craigslist and there is a 2002 for 9000$ 150k. And a 2001 180k 5400$ both auto both 6.0 gas. Both quad cab

If you already have the insert its the easiest way to fit what your doing ?
